Brief Answer: You may have infection or amniotic fluid leak Detailed Answer: Hello! Thanks for your query. Green discharges and white thick ones with back pain may be : -infection, due to bacterial with yeast infection -rupture of membranes with amniotic fluid leak You need to consult with your doctor ASAP for further evaluation, because : -you may be close to delivery -you may have STD (like gonorrhea),you need to be tested and treated because this infection can complicate pregnancy and may have serious effects on both you and your developing baby. For the bowel problems you should eat foods rich with fibers and take much liquids . To relive fissures (opens)in your bowel you can use some creams that contain lidocaine. Please let me know for everything you will do. Take care of your self

Brief Answer: You should wait Detailed Answer: Hello! Thanks for your query. Im happy for you that there wasnt leakage of amniotic fluid. You should wait for the results of vaginal culture and after that you should be treated from your doctor. As you are in term(you are ready to deliver)you should go to the hospital when: -Contractions come at regular intervals and last about 30-70 seconds. -Contractions steadily increase in strength. -Water breaking Please monitor fetal movement and tell me for swab result. Take care of your self
