Water Breaking-what color?


What color is your water when it breaks?(haven't had nookie today, so I know its not from that)

I had milky liquid run down my leg earlier today and had braxton hicks strong all day.
Too early for labor(25 wks.) so I hope its ok.

Me too, exactly the same. It didn't smell of anything either.

Perhaps the milky liquid is discharge? I remember I had to wear a panty liner in the later stages of pregnancy last time as I had quite a lot of it. It's possible to have quite a lot of it in pregnancy. If in doubt, get it checked out by your doctor or midwife.

Mine was clear like water and at first it did have a slight pink tinge. Never milky coloured, but ring M/W if you are at all worried so they can put your mind at ease or check you out if they think they need to.

I had the exact same thing around 25 weeks and they tested it to see if it was amniotic fluid and it was just watery discharge. My doctor said your waters will be clear- if it drips into the toilet and it looks whitish then it is discharge. And I still have it.

Agree with the others, amniotic fluid should be clear.

Thanks to all. Got checked out and they said I am fine. Nurse checked my urine, but didn't do the same strip test that I got last preg. to rule out amniotic fluid. The doc said I would have a lot more of it if it was true water breaking, like I peed myself.
Usually my discharge is thicker, not like a paste, but thicker than a watery consistancy, so that was diff. for me. I change my panties three times a day right now! But this was a gush of watery fluid, so I was concerned only later when I was having contractions closer together. I thought the two together meant something could be going on. Glad I am ok.
