I'm not 100%, and neither is Dr. Google. There are lots of stories that go both ways. My MW did say that it's normal for discharge to become more watery (I asked because mine is watery). Apparently there's a strip test that your health care provider can do to tell you if it's amniotic fluid or not. I think I remember reading about a way to do it at home too, let me see if I can find it again.
I have gotten so much more watery, Rozzie. It is crazy. A few times I have felt like I am leaking water..I won't stress unless I lost a mucus plug, just been assuming its discharge.
More watery, yes. More of it, yes. For my first I started wearing pads because the discharge was grossing me out, but I've never had it in that quantity since then.
And I uh.... definitely peed myself yesterday.... I sorta needed to go, and then I turned on the tap at the same time baby did some weird wiggly jiggly thing and yep... had to change my pants. I was only sure it was pee because when I kegeled hard and crossed my legs, it stopped. Hah. Sorry, way TMI.
I have to wear pads every day. *bag on head*
I'm like that too. I hear its normal. I just stop what I'm doing, cross my legs, and hope nothing comes out. Being sick wasn't fun because I coughed and sneezed way more than normal.
I've had an increase in discharge as well. Nothing too crazy, but enough that I wear a panty liner during the day! I think an increase in discharge is very common especially as we get closer to the end.
