i am 31 weeks on thursday will be 32 weeks. my son seems to be extremely low. well i went to the bathroom and noticed my underwear are way more wet than usual. not just dime size more like half a dollar bill size...and i went to check again and it is more wet. now i dont know if i am peeing and not aware of it or if im leaking amniotic fluid?.....its clear, watery..no gunk at all...no odar...im feeling a little crampy and i felt him fidget earlier but since like a half hour ago i havnt felt anything but then again i was busy giving my 22 month old a bath since she decided to go diaper diving (she had just went poo) ew. so i came back to check to see advice and had nothing so if any of you ladies have gone through this and know what is was can you give advice or something? if i keep leaking and dont feel him move i will call the on call nurse but i hate to make something out of nothing...

Honestly, it could be either. But the easiest way to know is odor. Pee smells like pee, even just a bit. Many women say that amniotic fluid smells slightly sweet or has no odor.

It could also be just watery discharge...I noticed this a lot more often towards the end of my pregnancy with my son..I ended up wearing a panty liner almost all the time because I hated the wet feeling

You can also check to see if its amniotic fluid by laying down for about 30 min...if when you stand up you feel it gush out....call your doc (the amniotic fluid will pool in your vagina while you lay down and that way you'll feel it when you stand up)

Probably vaginal discharge.      If it is AF then you would be leaking and can work to reseal-heal up.
If you put on a maxi pad you can watch to see if you are able to fill it up/how long it takes.   
Also check your temperature for a fever, keep a log of the results, checking every four hours.


When is your next prenatal appt?
Are you able to time those cramps?
