Am I over reacting?

@Jennifferq:  Yes. I have actually quite a bit of light cramping and some yellow tinted discharge (which is never in my underwear and only after I wipe so I am not sure). I did have some salmon colored sicharge and actually some brown the other day, but again, no pain or anything  in my underwear so I just ignored it. My doctor said my cramping was normal as well because everything is expanding to make way for baby 🙂

She said unless I am bleeding and cramping, I am ok, and I think you will be too until next week, but I completely understand your concern. Congrats on the pregnancy and good luck!

@Jennifferq:  I hear ya! I can’t imagine going through a m/c. My mom had several. How far along are you? I am 5 weeks 5 days. I guess the only concern I would have would be the yellowish discharge, but I think that can wait to be address especially if it doesn’t have an odor and you don’t have any burning, itchy, or pain when peeing.

Yellow discharge is totally normal. BTW your ovaries aren’t growing, it’s your uterus and yes, it’ll cramp once in a while. 😉 If your feeling a sharp pain around your hips when you sneeze or get up too fast that’s round ligament pain, which is also normal.

@MrsRugbee:  +1 =]

 

Don’t worry too much I know it’s hard not to…trust me I worried about every little thing until about 13 weeks. I cramp all the time I normally have a full day of cramping at least once a week. Yeah at first it really worried me but now I’m used to it. My discharge is a bit different from day to day even more so at firrst. As long as your not seeing reds pinks or browns in your cm you should be fine. Good luck and congratulations

@Jennifferq:  Just a heads-up, your discharge is going to change A LOT over the course of your pregnancy. I’m 33 weeks, and it seems like every other day it’s a different color, consistency, and flow. Nothing even resembling how it was pre-pregnancy.

No need to freak out unless you have bright red blood or your discharge starts looking like a yeast infection.

@ExcitedScaredBee:  This makes me feel better knowing it changes day to day becuase that is what I am finding if one day it is salmon colored and another brown. It seems to happen when I push to go bathroom (sorry for the gross TMI).

@Jennifferq:  Yeah, I actually had some yellow discharge starting around 8-9 weeks (10w3d now) maybe once a week, it freaked me out the first time it happened, but there are so many hormones directing your body to make lots of extra mucus etc. Definitely ask your doc about it – I’m going to ask mine for peace of mind too – but know that the discharge and the cramps are just growing “pains,” one literally!

Totally normal!  I’m 18w5d and let me tell you, the discharge will be non-existant some days and then others YUCK.  I didn’t have any for a while and lately it’s been bad.  It’s totally normal, especially in the beginning b/c baby is nesting in there comfortably 🙂
