In brief: 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.

In brief: 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.

In brief: 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.
