I don't know if it's normal or not ...



But I am having a sweet smelling discharge. Not alot, just enough though to have like a "wet" feeling down there.



Is this normal?? I am 7 months (29 weeks)

I have heard that if your leaking fluid it can smell sweet, so you might want to go in to the dr. Did you have any procedures or anything that could cause leaking fluid

I've heard amniotic fluid has a sweet smell. You could have a slow leak, I would get it checked out.

Oh okay. Glad it's normal. I really don't wanna drive 30 miles just to ask have my doctor to tell me that it's normal. LoL

Really?? Even though it's kinda thick, and is just white?? I thought it would look like regular water.



(I had my water broke for me for my first, so I never knew what my water looks like. )

No. No procedures. Everything has been normal. Just took my glucose test Thursday.



I hope it's not my water. I'm wayyy too early.



I guess I can wait a few more hours, then try to call my OB.

No if its thick its probably pretty normal but if its thin it could be amniotic fluid it looks like water, well when I leaked some it looked like water.

Yes I had this type of discharge very early on and throughout my whole pregnancy so I was concerned and asked early on. Doctor also said it depends on what we eat that day that could make it more potent than other days.

i had the same thing going on but im only 26 weeks and yesterday 7/11/11 my dr. checked and told me it might be alittle yeast... she said i can wash with white vinegar and water...and also prescribed me some meds. to help...she said its normal for women to have discharge because there are mass amounts of estrogen.. and unfortunatly sometimes can turn into yeast infection :( i was afraid so i ask as much questions all the time..lol my first time! but i hope all is well jst ask dr. im sure ur ok...like im always told "you're pregnant, and its all part of the process" lol
