preggy but concerned

i am 7 weeks pregnant today. (baby is 5 weeks old)
I have 2 questions.
1) is a white-clear discharge normal during pregnancy? (no odour just a mucus type discharge similar to before a period)

2) i am experiencing a muscular tightness on one side of my abdomen. it does occasionaly vary between sides but is more common on my right side. it also feels tight when i walk. Is this normal? I saw my gynae 3 weeks ago as I had some pain but she said that the pain was referred due to a heavy ovary dropping onto my nervous system.
please offer advice. I am due for my first scan on Thursday and am worried about getting neurotic.

The discharge is normal.
These sort of stretching pains are quite normal as well. You can use Panado if you need to.
Best wishes

Hi there

Don't stress. Both the things you are experiencing are normal. I am 11 weeks pregnant and I still get the cramps and now the discharge has become less.

Enjoy your pregnancy
