TMI alert. Discharge or leaking ?

I'm 25+2 today. Over the last week the amount of VD has really increased; a couple of days ago I got through 3 pairs of knickers in the one day (forgot to use my usual liners) and this morning there was a puddle under my bottom on the bed.
I am getting concerned that this is not just discharge but that I am leaking amniotic fluid - some of it is thin and watery rather than the standard discharge.
I have my 25 week appointment tomorrow - should I wait until then or ring MW today ? And how do they find out if you are leaking or just very damp down there ?

Ring your midwife will reassure you or if it is amniotic fluid and you have to go into hospital you can be assured that you've done the right thing.

I had this. In fact, I still have it, and am now 33 weeks. In my case it seems to have been fine though it felt like gallons of liquid (sorry...). But as far as I can tell they check by shining a torch into you to see if there's liquid pooling around your cervix.
