Hi there

I have been told by me gynae that a milky discharge is normal. It is your bodies way of cleaning itself while you are pregnant. However, I am not certain whether the smell is normal. I did read that if the discharge is yellow/green and smells, then that is an infection.

Why don't you give your gynae a call.

All the best
