    Hi

    I've just had some vaginal discharge. All the time it has been either pure white or light yellow. Today it has come out neon/luminous light green is the best way to descibe it. Is this normal? Should I be concerned and phone maternity assessment?

    I am 37wks+2 days pregnant

    I have no idea, sorry. But if you're worried about anything, its best to call. They'll only reassure you - better than worrying!

    I've just been for my antenatal apt and was asked about my discharge. They said that only need to know/have concerns if it is 'offensive', green etc so I'd call the midwife or GP, you might have an infection. Good luck :flower:

    i would get it checked to be on the safe side - i had some green gunk and it turned out to be a heavy dose of thrush. Will put your mind at rest if nothing else :) x

    Hi all

    thanks for your advice. ended up calling the maternity assessment place and they are positive all is okay. they went through a couple of questions with me to check whether it was a danger sign, infection or nothing to worry about.

    In the hope this post may help in future, here is what they ran through with me:

    1. was I sure my waters hadn't broken (this was a definite no as I have polyhydramnios so I'm going to go in a gush) - if it had then they'd had asked me to come in for a check-up;

    2. any offensive smell, itchiness or pain (none of these so that ruled out an infection)

    3. baby moving (yes, so all seems okay)

    She has told me to monitor it and if I have any more to give them a wee call back. Its been an hour and so far so good.

    Thanks for your support and advice ladies

    xx
