QUESTION

Dear Midwife,
Ive noticed even after my doctor visit on the 19th that I have a thick white creamy discharge that doesn't seem to smell and is there all the time.

This is my first pregnancy and I am at 14 and a half weeks. Is this normal or should I have it checked out by my regular OB/GYN

Thank you

ANSWER

Most women are more "juicy" during pregnancy, so if this seems like your normal discharge, but just more of it, it probably is just a sign that your pregnancy hormones are working.

If you are concerned that you have a vaginal infection, you should tell your provider and get it checked out. Congratulations on your pregnancy!
