Get it checked: An increased discharge in the third trimester may be normal but it can also be a sign of an infection or ruptured membranes. Its best to have it checked out by your OB.

As your pregnancy progresses and the uterus enlarges, blood flow to the mucus membranes of the vagina and cervix increase causing more discharge. ...Read more

No big deal.: Detecting renal problems by fetal ultrasound is very accurate and efficient because it can prevent serious complications postnatally. Fetal renal pyelectasis or even hydronephrosis is nothing to worry about, provided the amniotic fluid is monitored and remains normal.

If your BP is NML: Afrin (oxymetazoline) contains a vasoconstrictor, which is to say that it constricts blood vessels. In women predisposed to this, especially in late pregnancy, it may cause a rise in your bp, that could make your doctor suspicious of developing preeclampsia.

In small amounts it should be safe, but I would suggest you try antihistamines (they sometimes help), and avoid the decongestants for the above reason. ...Read more
