The last couple of days it seems like I have more discharge than usual. I'm 23 weeks now. Is it normal to experience different degrees of discharge throughout the pregnancy? I'm going to call the doctor tomorrow because I want to make sure it's OK because yesterday I seriously like felt it like "squirt out" when I sat down after walking around the mall. I went to the bathroom and checked and saw my underwear had a wet spot. Today its not as bad and looks like it had been (a little thicker) but I swear I can still feel it. I am more conscious of my body down there since my last two pregnancies I have had bleeding and I could usually feel that too. So, whenever I think I feel something down there I always go check. But so far no bleeding with this pregnancy, and that usually starts about 10 weeks ago for me. I'm hoping it's not fluid. I haven't felt any other differences and am still feeling the baby move. I get another ultrasound in 3 weeks but maybe he'll move it up just to check the fluid level. Keeping my fingers crossed!

I can understand the concern..I've lost 6 babies. I'm now 20 weeks pregnant and doctor says this one is here to stay..But I wont believe it til she is out of me and everything is accounted for. So I can understand how you feel. I check everyday to make sure Im not spotting. I get worried when I dont feel her move all day..But the Discharge I can tell ya is normal.. I've been having alotttt of it..It worried me like something broke but its just your hormones changing..So I wouldnt worry too much bout it unless its followed or mixted with bleeding

I was mainly concerned about when it felt like I squirted out water or whatever. My thought was fluid. But after waiting two days for the nurse to get back to me (don't get me started on that) she said that my doc said it's normal and if there's no blood then it should be fine. I don't like to over think things, but I also don't like to under think things either. I have had a preemie and a stillbirth, so with this pregnancy everything is pose for concern. I very high risk and not to mention I have high anxiety about how this pregnancy will turn out. So, I am keeping my fingers crossed. So far, so good!

Hi, It is normal to have an increase in discharge. Mine has increased too. I think that the baby will slow down with movements if there was a problem. You also know that blood is the only reason for concern. I'd suggest you to drink more water to flush out your system a bit. Hope this helps. I'm sure everything is fine. Good Luck. Let us know what the doctor says.
