Pregnant, suffering from lower abdominal pain, yellow vaginal discharge. Signs of infection?

I am 14 weeks pregnant and have been having lower abdominal pain like cramps since I found out I was pregnant at 5 weeks. I have had 2 scans (1 at 9 weeks and 1 at 12 weeks) they showed everything was normal and that i shouldn t worry about the pain. I am now also getting a lot of yellowish discharge (no odour or itchiness) JUST the discharge and pain. I am wondering if this could be an infection or what it could be? Thanks

Hello Zoe,
Thanks for your query.
One possibility is that you are having a vaginal or pelvic infection.
Normal vaginal discharge without odour or itching is physiological in pregnancy, and nothing to worry about.
However you should not be having lower abdominal pain with cramps, as that is not normal.
SOme amount of pain and discomfort is usual as the uterus grows in size and stretches to become an abdominal organ.
However, cramping is not normal.
It could indicate a subtle infection.
If your scans are normal, and cervical length is normal, chances of it being indicative of an abortion or miscarriage are very low.
Please consult your obstetrician for detailed evaluation and diagnosis.
Take care.
