Go get checked out if you're worried but I get this all of the time. I've been having the clear wet patches in my underwear since around 18 weeks, been worrying me ever since but I've been checked over and told it wasn't amniotic fluid just the unpleasant side of pregnancy and increased discharges, I think it's pretty normal. I feel more confident that it isn't amniotic fluid as the weeks go by since I doubt I'd leak for 10 weeks without having any serious repercussions like waters breaking fully, more or low amniotic fluid levels, which I haven't.
It's probably excess discharge, I've heard loads about it on here and also had it myself - it worried me and I ended up going getting checked out to put it out my mind. Your GP can take a quick swab and check if it's amniotic fluid, they can also have a little peak at your cervix to make sure it's nicely closed. Mine did this and I really recommend it as it was constantly in the back of my mind and now I feel miles better! It only takes 5mins!
Mr DR said that if it was a gradual wetness it was likely just discharge but if you have been lying down for an hour or two and get up to a gush of fluid it could be amniotic fluid and it's better to be checked. Remember that amniotic fluid constantly replaces itself too so even if you are leaking a little it may not necessarily cause problems straight away but it's best that DR/midwife know about it.
Would they not beable to tell this when they test ur urine? I have been gettin wet aswell and thought it was just watery discharge but now im gettin worried.I dont have my next apointment with mw till 4 weeksish.Should i see my doctor? I just dont want people thinking im being silly.x
I started a similar thread about a week ago. When I get up in the am after I go to the bathroom and start walking around I usually get a small gush of clear wet fluid. I go to the docs on thurs so I will ask them about it then and let u know what they say! I have a feeling it's normal...
