Hello, I would be happy to help you with your question.
In pregnancy, there is sometimes concern about discharge not only related to infection, but also in terms of an early change in the cervix itself. Signs of "changes in the cervix" might include: increased pressure, increased discharge, and blood tinging of the discharge (which might appear as a brownish discharge).
While what you are describing is likely a recurrent infection, it is worth getting it checked out with your OB/GYN. You are at a critical gestational age where determining that this is NOT an issue with your cervix would be very important. At the same time, a repeat culture could be obtained.
i hope this helps and good luck!
