Discharge during pregnancy
Hi to all. This is a bit of an embarrassing question.

I am 9 w pregnant, and seem to be getting more discharge as the pregnancy progresses. It's clear and doesn't smell too bad but it is bothersome. Even more strange, I seem to be passing wind down there (gross I know). Is this the norm or what?!

This is all normal. Bloating and wind are commoner in pregnancy due to the pregnancy hormone, progesterone.
