yellow discharge at 38 weeks

I am 38 weeks, almost 39 and have been experiencing a yellow discharge for the last day and a half. There is no odor, nor any other coloration to it. Does anyone have any ideas on this matter?

Re: yellow discharge at 38 weeks

It could just be your mucus plug coming out. It's totally normal though, so don't worry too much about it. It just means that baby is pretty close to making an appearance! Good luck!

Goodness!! I have had that too. I am just 35 weeks and noticed it about a week ago. OB told me it was normal and that I was probably going to start to lose my plug soon.

I had the same discharge. It went all day. I was informed by hospital staff that it was late pregnancy discharge. It turned out it was my waters leaking all day.

Re: yellow discharge at 38 weeks

I think it is just your mucus plug. I would go to L&D though, considering what ohnotagain said.

I too had yellow discharge, and mine was found to be bacterial vaginosis. Just wanted to let you all know...

Re: yellow discharge at 38 weeks

I am in the same boat with Jenn.e in that I'm 23 weeks with it. Never took it was a problem though since it wasn't extremely thick or excessive. Didn't know yellow discharge was a cause for concern...
