Menstrual smell?
I'm 38 weeks and have noticed in the last week a 'menstrual' like smell. Has anyone else experienced this? I couldn't find anything. I have been experiencing all the prelabor and first phase symptoms for a little over a week now, so could this be due to dialation?? I haven't seen any signs of my plug yet, and have had no [I]visible[/I] bleeding or spoting.

I go to the doctor tomorrow, and will be checked for the first time, so I have no idea if I have or haven't started dialating yet. Any opinions would be much appreciated!

I have been experiencing the same except mines is coming with discharge as well. Im 37w4days and I'm dilated 2 1/2 cm. The doc is saying the discharge is normal and it can cause a smell. All I know is Im tired of it and just want it to be over. Good Luck @ the doc

I have noticed that before too it a white or clear discharge around the time I would have gotten my period and I have been noticing it as early as 28 weeks.

Well I went to the doctor and it doesn't have anything to do with dialating because I'm high and closed, so... I guess it's just around my time of the month, but I'm only noticing it lately.
