Pregnancy: It's normal to have increased vaginal discharge during pregnancy because of hormonal changes. However if the discharge has an unusual smell, new consistency (liquidy, extremely thick, etc.) or has any blood you need to go in for an evaluation. Also It's normal at 38 wks to have contractions and fatigue as your body prepares for labor. If you have any pain with urination, you should get examined.
