Hi Doc, my wife is 19 wks pregnant, and we are expecting our first. I have noticed that she has a white "afskeiding". I am to shy to ask her if it is nornal and she might be embarrised. Is there anything wrong? I am only a warried future dad! We go to her doc on a monthly basis and the baby is fine!

Sounds normal. Tere is increased discharge in pregnancy. Unless it is itchy or smelly, it is likely to be normal.
