Pregnant with severe back pain. White discharge from vagina, milk from breasts. Signs of early labour?

Hi there. I m 36weeks and 2days pregnant, meant to be due on the 14th of december. I m noticing a lot of differences happening lately and I m not too sure what can be going on. I ve checked a few of the things on google and the are stating that its early signs of labour but I m not sure whether to believe that or not. Anyway, I ve been getting a lot of braxton hicks, more often than usual. I had constipation earlier on this evening and haven t managed to get a toilet till earlier on but before that happened a yellow mucus discharge poured away from my rectum and I don t know what that could be. I also got a white milky discharge that came away from my vagina this morning and this evening, what could that be? My breasts leaked a lot of milk last night too plus I ve been getting a lot of lower back pain recently. Can t think of anything else that has happened to let you know about apart from I was at the midwife on wednesday past for regular check and she said the babies head was entering my pelvis . Help! I don t know what s going on, are these signs of early labour or do I have nothing to worry about?

Thanks for the query.

When the baby's head enters into pelvis it will cause pressure on surrounding structures like rectum and bladder.
That may be responsible for passage of yellow mucus discharge from anal opening.
But as you are having more frequent contractions, breast secretion from the milk, better to consult gynecologist once to rule out the possibility of preterm labor and also to note the well being of the baby.
Take care.
