Has anyone noticed a major increase in this? Its not fluid (although it scares me to bits sometimes when I sit or get out of bed and feel a real "woosh") its just the normal milky discharge. I worry that I have too much of it, its really a lot and has been rapidly increasing in the last 4-6 weeks.....<br><br>
Anyone else dealing with this?

I'll join the wet panties club. I'm trying to get some mama cloth ordered just to soak up the excess. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

Yep! I go through at least 2 undies a day, and I have our diaper sprayer hooked up so I can hose myself off too. It definitely helps to not feel so yucky.

I too have been blessed with this. I remember having it with my first but not until late in the pregnancy.<br><br>
This time it's been going on for weeks. It still makes me fret when I feel a 'gush'. I need to buy more cotton panties. Siiigh.

I finally stopped bleeding/spotting and the discharge started. I've been leaking SOMETHING since 12 weeks. Ick.

Yes, it's gross and it's really irritating my skin. I'm changing undies in the middle of the day, too. Blech.

Me too. I just keep cloth panty liners on all day.

since we're talking about things related to cloth liners- I have been using the cloth only at night, since I dont have many with "wings" to keep them in place. most are just several layers of cotton T&T'd in a liner shape. could I use double stick tape to keep them in place in my undies during the day? with peeing so often at work, I can't risk dropping one in the toilet -like I have done at home more times than I care to admit!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/biglaugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="laugh"><br><br>
i'm sick of using the disposables- the cloth are sooo much softer and cleaner feeling (oh, and more breathable which can only help as it gets warmer around here!)<br><br>
thoughts about keeping them in place? I'm too lazy to sew more with wings and snaps.

Yup - me too, I am super curious about it too because it seems to be coming from my urethra but it's milky, not clear like urine. It's not a vaginal discharge for me and I know for sure it's not an infection (as an Anatomy & Physiology professor sometimes it's been nice for calming fears and such!). It's got a distinct odor, too.<br><br>
And after sex I notice I am -way- wetter for -way- longer. It almost makes me not want to have sex until the weekend so I can have a few days to "dry out" before going back to work.<br><br>
/sigh

Swamp crotch! Yeah, I am using my lunapads cloth liners because otherwise it's just... excessive. I hate the rapidly draining feel when I stand up.

Swamp crotch, indeed. I've been struggling with urinary incontinence, but seeing a pelvic floor specialist and improving a lot. Today I thought I had a leak, but it turned out it was just that lovely leukorrhea. That, actually, was a relief! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy"> Never thought swamp crotch would be worth a happy dance!

Yeah, lotsa leaky...I STILL sometimes peek in the panties after a little "gush" to ensure I'm not bleeding. It really feels like the same thing as when you are surprised by AF..<br><br>
I noticed with my last pregnancy and this one, that (uh yeah..more TMI) in the late 2nd trimester, and the 3rd, right before I feel the need to have a BM, I'll get super wet. I'm guessing the rectal pressure also puts pressure on the cervix and it pushes mucous down and out..fun.<br><br>
One thing I always do is cleanse several times a day with a peri bottle. I do after each BM (it helps with my roid's, too) and a couple other times per day, as well. I sometimes use some apple cider vinegar in the bottle with water, sometimes some RRL tea infusion with comfrey, and usually just plain water. It seems to help me feel clean anyway..sheesh...I thought the diaper changes came in a few months. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">
