Hello
Thanks for your query.
All your reports are essentially quite normal, so congratulations !
Prepare yourself for a lovely time as a mother !
The glucose challenge test is borderline, so please request a glucose tolerance test just to confirm.
Regarding the white discharge, it is quite normal in pregnancy, specially as term approaches.
Occasionally, it might indicate an infection, and thus lead to preterm labour, hence, at 36 weeks, it is important to consult an obstetrician , and rule out infection or preterm labour signs and symptoms.

Take care.
Feel free to discuss further.
