Re: Is This Normal?
I have the same discharge and it's normal to pregnancy and believe it or not, a natural anti bacterial to keep you from getting infections that could harm the baby. Interesting fact: you may ask why you don't have the discharge all the time, only in pregnancy if it prevents infection? It's because it kills sperm. That's what I've read. It's amazing all the things the human body is equiped to do. Also, about the nosebleeds, I have had plenty of them. Mine are really coming from my sinuses, which have stayed irritated through this whole pregnancy. But my doc said that a pregnancy hormone causes more blood to be released and all vessels to dilate and be closer to the surface, so it makes perfect sense that soft tissues like sinuses, noses, and gums bleed. About the itchy thing, I have no idea. Just make sure you're not getting an infection. I've heard yeast infections are pretty common during pregnancy (due, interestingly, to the discharge that kills the bacteria, because bacteria keeps yeast at bay.) so you may just want to make sure it doesn't get worse.
