Re: Discomfort questions
Hi, dont worry about the white discharge, thats perfectly normal and does get heavier towards the end. I thought I had a yeast infection, but my doctor said its very normal, as long as its not blood tinged and is white. I believe greenish would indicate infection. As for the sharp pains, at 34 weeks your baby is starting to grow like a week, just getting fatter and fatter now. I believe its stretching pains and they can stop you in your tracts. Try a pregnancy belt. Any medical supply store or maybe even WalMart may have them. They're around $25 and support your belly and back and take a lot of the pressure off you. As for talking with your doctor, trust me, your insurance is paying him well....if you have lots of questions, you sit there until they're answered. I used to put all my questions on a sticky note and my doctor just got used to me, so when he'd walk into the room and start doing his usual examinations, he'd say, ok, what questions for today, so by the time he'd finish all questions would be answered. What you can do too is, all doctors have a nurse, just call her....they're very helpful and informative. Im 39 weeks now, and 10 days ago started into slow labor. What amazed me was true labor pains actually felt like gas pains. They were extremely low down almost like they were right on top of my cervix, lower then my lower belly. The nurse laughted when I told her it was gas pains, she said, when we hear that we know its true labor. You will experience quite a lot of aches and pains for the next few weeks, extreme pressure, even heavier discharge. Drink tons of water, that really helps and does void off premature labor.
