Hi Vievie, thanks for visiting HealthReplies.com.
In the 3rd trimester of pregnancy, white discharge such as mucus can be caused by several things, such as:
vaginal discharge. During pregnancy, it is normal for a woman to experience more vaginal discharge due to hormonal factors. However, if you find vaginal discharge that changes color, smells, is accompanied by itching or pain, this is a sign of abnormal vaginal discharge
Rupture of amniotic fluid. The characteristics of the amniotic fluid are odorless, clear or yellowish in color, and often whitish spots are found followed by mucus or blood in the underwear
Urinary incontinence or difficulty controlling urination because the greater the gestational age, the bladder will be increasingly pushed by the uterus and the mother will feel the urge to pee continuously and even inadvertently urinate because she can't hold it.
34 weeks of age is an age that is not yet sufficient for childbirth. The age at term is 37-42 weeks. If at this time the complaint of vaginal discharge that you feel is like leaking pee accompanied by severe abdominal pain and the characteristics of amniotic fluid, you should immediately consult an Obstetrics and Gynecology Specialist for direct examination and supporting examinations such as litmus test, Ultrasonography (USG). ), and Cardiotopograph (CTG) if needed. In addition, there are several things you can do at home, such as:
Always pay attention to fluid that comes out of the birth canal. Both in color, consistency, and smell
Give understanding to your partner to always be alert
Avoid holding BAK
Stay calm and avoid stress.
Hope it is useful.
