Hello dear,I understand your concern.In my opinion curdy white discharge is seen routinely in.pregnancy due to candidiasis.
Yellowish vaginal discharge might be bacterial vaginosis or other types.
But to confirm the type of discharge you might need culture and sensitivity of vaginal discharge.If the test is normal you need not worry.Otherwise you might need to take appropriate antibiotics to avoid complications like preterm labour.
Dont worry.
