Leaking Fluid? Shayne's Mommy :) Due October 30 (girl); 1 child; Massachusetts 130 posts

I am 37w4d and since about 7am yesterday I've been having small gushes of clear fluid continuously coming out throughout the day/night. Not enough to soak a pad in an hour but it's enough to soak my panties and I'm still now experiencing small gushes. I went to get checked out yesterday because it was enough fluid that I was 90% sure it HAD to be my waters leaking but tested negative for amniotic fluid. What else could it be? I feel like a crazy person!

The midwife said it's probably just watery mucous but it has me so confused. I never had this with my son and I didn't think any other fluid would continuously leak like this except for amniotic fluid. Anyone else experience this and what did it turn out to be? Thanks!

I thought I was leaking fluid as well during both pregnancies. Near the end of pregnancy your discharge increases and gets much more water-like. If it happens again, try those "Amnio Sense" panty liners they sell near the pregnancy tests! They tell you if you're leaking amniotic fluid or not. Genius idea! Since I'm sure almost all women fear they're leaking sometime during pregnancy.

I've never heard of those, I will definitely grab some thank you!
