  • my water was a clear liquid... it was just like water. What I was told to do was to lay down for half an hour - if when you stand back up there is another trickle then contact L&D

  • my fluid was clear also. If yours has color I'd call ASAP to Land D.

  • My water was basically clear as well, but tinged with a bit of blood ~ which is normal, so don't worry if that happens to you. It should smell earthy and it cannot run out, so as you move around it should continue to leak.

  • Sounds like the discharge many women get during pregnancy. It is normal to have a LOT of discharge, and it doesn't mean you have an std or that your water broke. From your description, it really doesn't sound like it was your water. But there is a very simple test they can do at your docor's office, if that will ease your mind.

  • Yeah called your doctor right away. When my water broke it triggered contractions. And every contraction I had a gush of water. But just a little tricke could be it. Good luck!

  • I's say it's just discharge as well. It doesn't mean she has an STD, grow up people! I have white discharge and I'm 100% positive I am STD free. I think it's perfectly normal to have more discharge during pregnancy... So just wait to see if you have regular contractions and I also think your water is clear and water like...
