I am 37 weeks pregnant, last night and throughout the night i ended up having brown, watery discharge. Stopped now. Should i just ignore?

No.: You are close to term, so this is no time to ignore anything.

What could be causing this brown discharge? I used opks this month and believe i ovulated around the 12th or 13th of november. My cycles have pretty much stayed 37 days. Which would mean I should start my period today(11/25/11). Well starting on 11/21/201

This : This discharge was probably the beginning of your menses(period), it is not uncommon for the initial bleeding and the final day of bleeding to be brown in color. If you have an odor or irritation then you may be dealing with a bacterial infection. By the date of this post about a week has passed. Did you start your period? Do you still have persistent discharge? If so please visit your doctor for evaluation and testing. ...Read more
