Leaking fluid??

For the past few days, I notice a wet spot on my panties. It started after having a vaginal ultrasound to check my cervix. At that time I was told that everything was ok. How do I know if this wet spot is normal discharge or amniotic fluid? If it was fluid, how much would it be? I'm only 20 1/2 weeks.

  • It's most likely just discharge. I started getting it a lot around that time myself.

  • It's probably discharge. I had to start wearing pantiliners every day around 20 weeks or so. The discharge increases over the course of your pregnancy. If you're really concerned, they can check the fluid with pH type paper.
