alicia - December 18

Im 35 weeks pregnant and i noticed i dropped within the past week. However the past two days i noticed not only an increase in discharge but now im wondering if it might not be me leaking amniotic fluid because its a good lil trickle here and there and its clear and watery. I read it is supposed to increase and thicken but its not thick its thin like water. my mom wasnt sure what to tell me (im a first timer lol) but my drs appt isnt until thursday and i goto a clinic so they dont give out the doctors number when you go into labor you just goto the hospital and they page him ( i believe)...my mom went into labor at 36 weeks twice and 34 weeks once...so im a lil worried

Hi Alicia! I am almost 39 wks. I have been noticing some watery discharge lately. (I'm 2cm and 60% effaced). At my last appt. I asked my midwife if this could be my water leaking. She said it will usually be a gush. BUT, it's possible, to tell the difference she said to wear a pad, and if I soaked through it, it could very well be. Also, look for what they call T.A.C.O......time, amount, color, and odor. The odor is really important, so you know you're not just leaking urine......hope this helps!
