Ok, I know this is a little, or a lot, TMI but here goes...
I have been having a heavy discharge since 27 weeks, I'm 30 weeks tomorrow. I usually wear a panty liner and change it a couple of times a day just to feel clean. Normally, regular discharge that a woman experience sits on top of the liner or under wear and doesn't really soak in and that is what it has been doing. But this morning I was sitting on the couch watching TV for about an hour and when I went to the bathroom my underwear were wet. Like a strip about a 1/2 inch wide and 6 inches long of wetness. It just looked like water, not discharge. Then when I was doing some work standing up, it happened again, a spot in my underwear bigger than a silver dollar that was just wet. After that I put on a pad and it is really hard to tell what is going on once you put a pad on. I mentioned this to my ob at my 28 week check up, just that I was having a heavy discharge, the water stuff had not happened yet. She said that was normal. But is the just water discharge normal? I have an appointment on Tuesday and thought I would bring it up again and see if maybe there was a test she could do to see if I'm leaking fluid. Should I wait that long? No big gush or anything, I know what water breaking feels like, it happened with my son. But could I just have a small leak?
