Mine definitely soaks the undergarments sometimes. I think that’s pretty normal.I’ve had pretty heavy discharge through my whole pregnancy.

In my own personal experience, you’ll probably know if you start leaking amniotic fluid.  You might hear or feel a “popping” that will clue you in, but also, it’ll probably be a consistent leak that will be heavy enough to warrant changing a pad every hour or so.  When my water broke with Addie (the first time), it was a very slow leak, but enough that I needed to change my panty liner before going to the hospital. 

It’s probably just increased discharge (you’re coming up on the joys of 3rd tri 🙂 but you can still call your doc, just as a precaution.  The test for amniotic fluid is super fast and easy; it looks just like a pH test strip that they dip in the fluid.

@winniewolf:  I just started soaking through as well. It’s less than awesome.  I think if it’s a consistent flow it’s an issue and would call, but for me it’s just here and there.

Don’t you love the things the DON’T tell you about in pregnancy?!

Sounds pretty normal to me, but like pp have said if it is a contant flow or you just need a little more piece of mind give your Dr. a call. =)

I’ve definitely been experiencing heavier discharge over the last month or so. I agree with the consistent v. intermittent flow thing though. If it was more than the occasional surge and seemed to persist, I’d call for peace of mind.
