How serious is a smelly discharge when pregnant? Can that harm the unborn baby? Someone told me I might have a retarded infant or the infection could pass on to my baby.

What course this kind of discarge when one is pregnant?

A bladder infection should cause smelly urine but not a smelly discharge. It sounds like a vaginal infection. This can cause infections in your womb which could be dangerous, so do go back to your doctor.
