A 30-year-old member asked:

Is it normal to have clear fluid leaking from my vagina in the third trimester?

No: All pregnant women will produce a vaginal "discharge" due to the normal, healthy production of cervical and vaginal mucus. Leaking clear fluid is always a warning sign and should be evaluated immediately.

Yes: It is normal to have a lot of clear mucus in the third trimester. You want to speak to your doctor to make sure it is not amniotic fluid.

Yes: There is more discharge as the pregnancy progresses and many women find they are more comfortable wearing a panty shield for the last few months. If you think you could have broken your water, you should see your doctor.
