    In the last week i have been having really bad deep lower back pains. These occasionaly go round into my hips and become really painful. It is nothing regular though. I have noticed that i am alot more moist then usual ... :blush: Which i assumed was normal. Before getting in the bath i noticed yellow/cream discharge in my knickers with a few blood spots. Is this normal? xx

    I don't know about the blood spots but I have lots of excess discharge, the hospital even treated me for thrush while they sent off specimens for tests... The results came back fine and I'm just one of the ones that ends up with a LOT of excess discharge...

    Not too pretty, but, what can you do?

    I know discharge is supposed to increase in the last month or so, like toward the end of the pregnancy.

    It is normal, I would think you may be losing your mucous plug... And you are coming close to the end anyways.

    If you're losing your plug like ryder said and it has blood in it, it means that labour is going to start soon.

    I've got so much discharge now it grosses me out. But, mine isn't creamy its like water, I thought i was leaking the other day.

    I had it and got told it could be my plug the yellow snotty stuff, nice!

    Doesnt necessarily mean labour is imminent either!

    It is very common for discharge to increase in the last couple of weeks of pregnancy. I have had a lot of discharge over the last few weeks - although nothing like a mucus plug or anything.

    The increased discharge is totally normal. I hate it too. I would see your MW about the vomitting, cramping and blood though. The blood is probably just your plug but it's always good to check things out, especially if you're having other symptoms.
