and welcome to the site. My name is***** and I'll be providing your medical information today.
It may be perfectly normal as part of the increased moisture in the vaginal area during pregnancy.
During pregnancy, the blood vessels and tissues of the vagina and cervix swell. It's common to get more discharge and moisture during this time. Many pregnant women find they need to wear a panty liner every day.
It's also more common to have yeast infections during pregnancy but that more often causes a cottage cheese discharge that does itch or burn, so yours doesn't sound like that.
The best thing to do is keep an eye on it and mention it to your OB next time you see him or her.
They may want to examine you just to be sure there is no infection but it doesn't sound like there is.
It may be a mixture of mucous production from the cervix along with extra sloughing skin cells from the walls of the vagina.
That would make the discharge change in texture and color from time to time.
But to main point is that there is no foul odor, no itching, no burning and you've been tested .
We do know that pregnant women tend to have more discharge of a variety of types because of the increase blood flow to the area and thickening of the cells with estrogen stimulation.
Yes it can be watery at times. The cervical mucous can be clear thin and watery or thick and sticky other times. The vaginal wall discharge can be whitish and thin or even yellow colored at times.
It sounds like you have a chnaging combination of normal variations.
It really doesn't sound like anything serious is happening.
I think you're not having foul odor, burning or itching, it's safe to wait until your next appointment and mention it then.
I really do think you're going to be ok.
ok, glad to help. It's normal to worry during pregnancy, you want everything perfect!
