    hay

    well had my 38wk appointment today BUT it was not my normal midwife as she is on holiday.

    I asked her what she thought the white discharge was and why the mw at the hospital was concerned enough to take a swab

    her response

    'I dont know'

    so i said well should i be concerned?

    her response

    'I dont know'

    sorry ladies i tried to find out but seems i ended up with the 'i dont know queen today' :growlmad:

    Normally with white discharge what they are concerned about is only a yeast infection- they would take a swab to make sure that it's not an infection. If you don't hear back, then the test was negative.

    Definitely not something to worry about hon :)

    My MW took a swab a few appointments ago as she noticed a lot of white discharge- it was negative so I'm good to go- hope this helps!

    yeah it was on my other post 'went and got checked'

    basically i had been worried since wed last week that my waters may have been leaking, then on friday night got the 'somethings not right feeling' went to hospital sat, they said i'm not leaking but when mw made me cough as she was looking a lot of white discharge was coming out and she was concerned so took a swab.

    its not thrush and doesnt show as white discharge on my knickers or pads, it looks like water and up till monday had a rancid smell which has now subsided.

    Yup, that's pretty much standard practice now.

    I had my glucose test on Friday and was told "If you don't hear from us by Tuesday, your results are normal"

    lol

    hi i just popped over from 2nd trimester,i also have very large amount of this white discharge every time i have a speculum they comment on it, but it just looks watery when it comes down, like the thick bit stays around my cervix...its verry strange, every swab comes back clear so i do not know what it is at all xx

    Ok, this discharge thing is starting to annoy me (like everything else at the moment, lol). Without sounding too disgusting, for the past week I have been soaked with the white discharge (actually feeling like i've wet myself when i'm walking about - not nice!). Then this morning i went to toilet and when i wiped it was like ewcm??? Kind of stringy and clear. I only just got my head around discharge when ttc and now its back. Does anyone know if this is just a normal change? x

    now i maybe wrong but by what i've read on here it could be a little bit of your mucus plug???? i'm not 100% sure tho, just the stringy bit that makes me think that
