Having white vaginal discharge by the end of month 8 is a common symptom. It is usually derived from the mucus plug, which is eliminated due to the fetus pressing the area after settling into a head down position in the womb. Nonetheless, the mucus plus keeps on regenerating until the baby is ready for being born.
