I lost part of my mucus plug yesterday. Since then i have had a lot more discharge and i wasnt sure if it was normal and on top of that i feel like i am leaking fluid too. Usually after i pee sometimes i leak a little but the leaking went on for a half hour even while sitting off and on. Their was some mucus in it too. I wasnt sure if what i am expirencing is normal or am i leaking fluid too. Sorry if its tmi. I dont wanna go to the hospitol if its not needed i am only 32 weeks but i am measuring 4 weeks bigger

  • If you are leaking amniotic fluid they will do a test strip to see if it's really amniotic fluid or just urine leaking. If you are leaking amniotic fluid then the longer you're membranes have been ruptured (even a small leak) then it puts you at a higher risk for infection, which is not good. I would call your OB tomorrow.

  • I've heard of a lot of mucus and discharge after the mucus plug goes, Amniotic fluid is usually less sticky. But there is no way of telling for sure unless you go in.
