It could be your mucus plug, if you have lost that then there is a sure chance your baby is very much on the way! I would ring your midwife and inform her, see what she says, all the best :)

Hi I started having the same thing at 30w, and now I'm 33 w. From what my MD said, it's just normal discharge if it doesn't burn or itch it is possibly heavy discharge called Leukkoriah( sp?) it's pronounced loo-ko--ria.

From also what they said if it is your mucas plug, it doesn't really mean much of anything. They said that a lot of women lose their plug and it regenerates all the time so it isn't really a form of early labor symptoms. Unless there is blood.

My discharge is a lot like yours and it's a ALOT ( tmi) so just wear a panty liner

I know the feeling.

I'm constantly taking showers!! I take about 4-5 showers a day now. Esp since it's been so hot outside.

This is one of the symptoms I wish I had been told about! Lol

Oh and here's a funny story for you:

When i was 30 weeks pregnant, I was at work and all day I kept noticing the discharge and whatnot, it ended up feeling like I had pee'd my pants! So I called my mom- took a picture of the discharge and when she saw it she started freakig out! Lol she thought I was in labor. So we rushed to the ER and my mom is screaming " she's in labor, she's in labor!!" and all the nurses were rushing about and getting me into a room. Well they started asking me questions, and my overbearing Mother answered them all while I was changing my clothes. And she's like she is either losing her plug or her water has broken. Well the dr came in and he tested the discharge- because there are these strips they can test to see if it's amniotic fluid or not. Well he tested the discharge then he started laughing! My mom was so confused! That's when he told us that I had luekoriah, and that it was nothing to be alarmed about. I swear my mom almost died of embarassment! Hahaha.

Needless to say I won't call her or txt her anything that's painful/ wrong in my pregnancy anymore! I'll just wait until I know for sure. Hahaha.

But seriously my mom is OVERbearing. She still treats me like I'm 10, and I'm 20 years old about to be a mom myself!

So no worries. And goodluck with your midwife, I wish I had one!
