Egg White Discharge 
18th-Dec-2008 01:46 pm [vaginal discharge]
Just wondering if anyone else has had any egg white discharge whilst being pregnant. I am 12w3d and first noticed it last night when wiping, it has no colour apart form being a little cloudy and seriously looks like ovulation egg whites. I didnt have this with my son so I am wondering if anyone else has had this happen to them and if it is just part and parcel with the excess discharge pregnant women seem to get? Btw I havent had any pain.

Yeah, I know, but I've found usually when people say "a kotex" they mean tampons and they're more well known for their tampons.

Yay for a dune in june too!!

My OBGYN said yesterday at my appointment that it is common to see a creamy, thicker discharge than you usually see. She explained that the body makes a mucous type substance to soften the membranes so that during the birth your lady parts can soften easier. She also said that having a little bit of a runny nose is common because those membranes have extra mucous too.

But as long as the discharge is white and doesn't have any odd colors or smells you should be fine. The only thing I would be concerned about would be a possible yeast infection because those are very common during pregnancy, but from what you described that isn't it. :) So I would just rest assured! Good luck!

I actually just noticed it really badly the past week or two. I don't know if it's "egg white" as I never really understood the whole CM part of charting, but it's definitely whitish/cloudy and stringy, and there's a LOT. I don't need to wear a pantyliner or anything as it seems to only really come out when I go to the bathroom. I'm glad to hear it's normal. I was going to mention it to my doc at my appointment today.

16 weeks.

i've had it the whole time too.
36 weeks.
i swear, it got worse for me in my third tri.
maybe tmi but wait till you sneeze or laugh really hard and
have to run to the bathroom to make sure you didn't pee your pants.

Yes I've had this a couple times, but I didn't pay attention to what week I was in other than just recently...I had some about a week ago. I'm 13 weeks today.
