Leaking water?

This is my second pregnancy, and I have had HEAVY discharge from the very begining. Well today I was feeling it come out so I went to the bathroom and my underwear had water all over and it had a horrible smell, like fish. I am wondering what this could be? Its not like my normal discharge at all, and I am too early for my water to break (16 weeks) any ideas?

  • I dont know what it could be but I do know that amniotic fluid is odorless so its not that. Maybe its vaginitis (not sure what that is but I know it causes a liquidy discharge that smells) I would call the doc and make an appt just to get it checked out

  • You may have an infection of some sort. I haven't had that problem in my pregnancy and I'm 38wks. Definitely something your doctor can only provide an answer. :/

  • Sounds like bacterial vaginosis. Go see your doctor so that you can be treated. If it goes untreated too long it can cause preterm contractions. Good luck!
