Hi guys,

I'm 12 and a half weeks pregnant, and for quite a while now I.ve been noticing a slight yellowy browny type discharge most days. It's not when I wipe, I just notice it at the end of the day (I've been wearing panty liners) and it's not very much- 1 panty liner per day. I Also feel very generally moist (sorry tmi) and as if I've wet myself most of the time! Does anyone else have/had this?

I should also say that I've had several scans and so far each one was good, so obviously I'm hoping that this discharge is nothing.

Yes I have something similar, am 10 weeks.

Dr Google says it can be a sign of miscarriage, infection or just normal and some women get this.

I went and got swabbed and don't have an infection, it's been going on for a couple of weeks so I hope it's not MC.... So I've decided it's normal!

I also read that although there aren't studies to support this, some women think pg multivits can turn discharge yellow like they do wee. I have to say this started a couple of weeks after I began with my multivit so I'm clinging on to that idea!

Hi thanks for replying. I think some people just get this...I know it can be a sign of something bad but i ve had it for a few weeks and each scan has been good (touch wood so far). Interesting about the vitamins, maybe that's a factor....maybe I should Check the infection thing out to be sure.

No, but my midwife said to call her if I noticed any discharge which wasn't clear because it could be a sign of an infection which can have bad consequences for your baby, so I think you should definitely get it checked.

It will probably be fine like ChattyCat, but just wanted to pass that on because "better safe than sorry" and all! smile

Sorry, that should have been "like RevoltingPeasant".
