    I would also like to know. I have had a very light brown discharge for about 2 days. It's so light that sometimes I think I might be imagining it. It's still making me a little anxious though. I never had this with my first pregnancy. I'm still tossing up whether it's worth seeing a GP or if I'm just being paranoid and it's totally normal.

    The discharge is two things - high progesterone levels in pregnancy mean the cells in your vagina grow a lot and are shed, so that's often the white/creamy discharge. You also have a mucous plug that is constantly shed from the bottom, and that can be brown/pink/yellow depending on if there's blood or it was fighting an infection.

    Normal is hard to say but - if it smells funny, burns or stings, or your vulva is sore/swollen then it's probably worth seeing someone about it. Apart from that, leave it alone . Wear cotton undies, skip the panty liner, drink lots of water and eat yoghurt.
