  • Normally it is thicker and whiter, but when you're pregnant it goes into overdrive and will be clear and less gooey. I had to wear a pantyliner half the time because of the increased discharge (well that and the fact that half the time if I sneezed I'd almost pee my pants). But like I said before l&d can test it, so if you are still worried go and get it checked. If nothing else it will put your mind at ease. And don't worry about looking stupid at l&d worried over nothing, they've seen it all and I'm sure they'd much rather you come in when you don't need to, than not come in when you should.

  • It's actually probably discharge. I know it doesn't seem like it because it's so much like water, but it's more than likely discharge. If you are really worried though that it might be your water breaking, you can see your ob or go to l&d and they can test it to see if it is amniotic fluid. But it is normal to have a lot of discharge and have it be very liquidy.

  • i would guess your discharge has increased but if your worried you can go to the L&D department and ask them to check

  • Really? see i thought discharge is like a gooey type and has a white ish color or yellow. at least all of my normal discharges do. thats why idk what it is.

  • My discharge during the 3rd trimester was the same way - I used pantyliners to stay dry :) I agree with canadianmom - if you're really concerned it's better to go in and have it checked out.
