    I have been having lots of white streaky dischage all throughout pg so far but yesterday and today its more sticky and yellow. It looks like how it does pre period, so naturally im worrying. Also Ive been having little shooting cramps the last 2 days, really noticeable.
    Is it usual for things to start changing around the 8 week mark?

    Hiya, sorry I dont know about 8 weeks but I thought I'd say I've been getting a fair bit of sticky yellow and cramping since before af was due - this was one of the things that made me think to test, since I'd not ever been erm.. so sticky or yellow before :) Thought I'd comment in case that is reassuring at all :)

    Thanks Flick,
    I have just been reading about how growth of the uterus accelerates at 8 weeks, I suppose new symptoms are to be expected. Apparently some women release old blood at this stage too. I will die if I see a little spotting, but it seems it can happen.
    I look forward to 2nd tri and not being a nervous wreck!!

    Ring your GP and ask what they think, maybe book an appointment just to be sure and put your mind at ease. I'm sure its all fine hun try not to worry too much xx
