Re: watery discharge?
Yvonne-Thank you for the caution. I've actually been having a bit of a time here in the UK with the way their medical system is set up (I am an American living in the UK). I know that it works for them here, but having been born and raised in America with our way of doing things medically, I never really know how to approach my doctor/midwife. I have been told that I've got a low lying placenta, which I was told is rather common, and I have a scan at my 34th week to see if it's risen, but being a cynnical American, I was a bit freaked out by such a long time that's being left until then. I was not told of any possible symptoms to look for in the even something went wrong (i.e. bleeding, etc)...just sent home and told to come back at 34 weeks, having "regular" prenatal visits in between. They also still use gas and air here in delivery. I have the option of an epidural, but if I want that, I can't have a private or semi-private room after the baby is born. I will be put in with all the other mothers and their babies. Mind you, I'm not trying to knock the NHS or how things are done here...if it works for the UK, then fine, but it's really hard to adjust after 30 years of American medical practice! Anyway, after this long-winded thing, thank you again. I will definitely make sure that I'm asking questions and making sure I know what things are and why it's happening.
