I had a lot of what I am assuming was amniotic fluid leaking. It was clear like water and didn't have any smell it usually happened when I felt the most bloated and I assumed it was just my body trying to take some pressure off the baby. I never got an answer as to what it was but my doctor told me it was normal to leak fluids during pregnancy as long as it wasn't an excessive amount at one time or had a strong odor.


Large amounts of very watery discharge are common during pregnancy and many women confuse it with leaking fluid. The hormone changes cause this. It is also the vagina's natural way to stay clean and flush out bacteria.
