how do you know if youre leaking amniotic fluid? Moushax37 17 kids; Colorado 963 posts

A few days ago I noticed somewhat of a little gush of fluid. I might add that it was about an hour after intercourse... but what came out seemed very watery. I let it dry and it seemed to dry clear. That was the only time it was a little gush, but since then I have noticed a little less normal discharge, but sometimes ill notice small drops of a clear fluid and it dries clear. Im pretty sure its not urine, that wouldnt bother me. When I sneeze I try to pay attention to whether anything comes out and it never does. Its more just random. So I guess my questions is, is it possible this is just normal discharge? Or could it be amniotic fluid. I was just in for my ultrasound a week ago and they didnt say anything about a tear or anything... Could it have just been the sex that caused that initial gush? Just freaks me out. I want to make sure im not leaking but I dont have another appointment for another 3 weeks and they wont be doing a pelvic exam anyway. Any input would be great :)

Amniotic fluid would be a continuous thing because it replenishes itself every few hours. Discharge can get very watery.

Well im only 21 weeks, so im definetly not close enough to delivery! Thats such a huuuge fear of mine. I just want my baby to make it full term and be born alive and healthy :)
Its definetly not a steady drip, but ive just heard stories of women not even knowing they were leaking amniotic fluid so it just worries me...
