    Hi Amber Sandra

    When pregnant its generally normal to see a white discharge, not unlike what you would have experienced before you were pregnant. As you get closer to labour though there tends to be a lot more of it!

    You may even expel a gelatinous glob which is called a mucous plug and falls away as your cervix gets ready for labour. Using panty liners can help to absorb the discharge (don't use tampons).

    Things to watch out for is clearer and thinner discharge (which might actually be a slow leak of your waters), a change in colour or smell (as in a bad smell), or any stinging, itching or burning in the area.

    I hope you're not too uncomfortable in these last weeks!

    Regards,

    Your cervix produces mucous - sometimes can be thick and sometimes it can be thin. Have you talked to your midwife or doctor about your discharge?

    I would just say what you have posted above - you have expressed yourself clearly. Don't worry, your midwife won't be embarrassed! Hope it goes well tomorrow and let us know if you need anymore support.

    Best wishes,
