The discharge sounds normal, and i have heard that you can get some swelling in the vagina during pregnancy. I have noticed a bit with mine, but nothing serious. But i would really bring it up for sure.

walking juggles your body pretty good, so when you walk for a few hours, that's a lot of back and forth on your uterus. Iritate anything for a few hours and it will swell a bit. As for a discharge, sounds pretty normal to me. I've had a pretty steady white discharge since basically the begining (17wks now) and doc says it's normal. It could also be the start of your mucus plug, but unlikely. If you start getting little chunks, call your doctor, although most women walk around awhile after it dislodges. I agree with you and Hollyberries, bringing it up with your doctor would be a wonderful idea. Again, don't take anything on here as a diagnosis.
