This week you may notice a difference in the volume and texture of your vaginal discharge. It may now be thick, milk and mild smelling. Relax. This isn’t a symptom of an STI. This discharge is caused by an increase in the production of estrogen and its purpose in your body is to maintain a healthy balance of bacteria in the vagina. An informative take-home tip for this part of your pregnancy is using a pant liner to avoid soiling your panties.

This week’s tip: Consider consulting with your medical provider on whether and when you should do an ultrasound. Make arrangements to make this visit together with your partner because it will help him slip into father role soon enough and to also be a more supportive partner.
