I`ve been having painfull pains in my stomach that stop me from walking and talking

hi alex i am 32 weeks pregnant and i have been having really strong and painfull pains in my stomach that stop me from walking and talking and i have been getting them through out day everyday since the 1st of feb (im not due until april) i think they are just braxton hicks but i thought it would be too early for them yet what do you think? i have also been having a milky white discharge since the 6th of feb could that be some of my mucus plug?

Answer: Hi, Thank you for your enquiry. Braxton Hicks are present from around 20 weeks so you may be experiencing some of these and they may be causing some discomfort. If they do become more painful and regular then you do need to have a check up. A white/cream discharge is normal during pregnancy and not a show. A show is usually streaked with old blood and very thick mucous. Best wishes, Alex
