Leaking Fluid

Ok I've been having a lot heavier discharge for the past couple of weeks. Well today it seems to be more and a lot more watery than usual. I was just wondering if I would be able to tell if I was leaking fluid or if it's just the normal discharge. I'm 23w4d with my second. I don't remember if I had this problem with my first, it was 5 1/2 years ago.

During my childbirth cla__s they said if you were concerned whether or not your water broke to put on a pad and lie down for 15 minutes, then check the pad. If there was a great deal of fluid on it you should call your doctor because your sack my have ruptured. If I were you I'd call my doctor regardless just to check. He'll/She'll tell you if there's need for concern. Good luck!

Also keep the pad as I think they can test the fluid if its fresh enough.

Also another idea...my dr with my first baby, I thought I was leaking fluid...she said to walk around for a little bit with like a dress or something without anything underneath, just for a little while, and if it runs down your leg it's fluid. Otherwise you're fine. Good luck! :)
