This might be a silly question but I worry. I'm 27.5 weeks pregnant and lately am noticing a lot more of a 'wet substance' in my pants. Its clear and uncented. Is it normal dishcarge? Or is it something worse like amniotic fluid?' How can you tell the difference??

I have the same thing but I am right at 40wks. I went to the dr today and he told me that everything was ok and everything looked ok. So just to be on the safe side if I were you and with you only being 27.5 wks into your pregnancy I would contact your dr. You know just to be on the safe side. I do it all the time. BETTER SAFE THAN SORRY! And once you clear this up with your dr if your anything like me you'll feel so much better!

I spent 3 hours at the hospital last night because of the same question, I was affraid my water broke - and they can do a simple test to see if it is amniotic fluid or somthing else, in my case it was urine. What they do is have you sit on special paper so the fluid can "tinge" the paper - its like chemistry paper - it turns green if its not amniotic fluid and blue if it is.....better safe then sorry - because the longer you go with undiagnosed ruptured membraines the more serious your baby's condition will be!
