Thanks for writing in.
The yellowish vaginal discharge may simply be due to the reversal of changes that occur in the uterus and the cervix during pregnancy. However, if it is associated with itching, foul smell, fever, fatigue, abdominal pain, then it can represent an infection as well. I would suggest you see a gynaecologist and get this discharge examined. We'll have to send it to the lab and culture it. Once we have the results, we can be sure we are not dealing with any such thing.
Hope this helps
