Increased discharge (lovely!)

I'm 25 weeks with my 3rd. I've had a lot of discharge for a while now and the MW did a swab last Monday to check for infection as it's quite lumpy but not unpleasant smell or itchiness but I've not heard anything back.

Yesterday and today though I've felt much damper than usual, I wear liners all the time but it's soaking through them and is clear not the white I've had up til now.

I never had anything like this with the other 2 so I'm not sure if it's normal. I know I had an increase in dampness right at the end but not this early. Any ideas?

I had a panic and thought my waters had gone a few weeks ago when I first experienced this sort of clear discharge. They tested and said it wasn't my waters but I've had a few episodes of "trickling" and feeling very damp (sorry tmi!) too. Don't think it's urine! Keep worrying it's my waters still.

I'm so relieved to see someone else is dealing with this! I'm almost 26 weeks, and have an increase in discharge too. Thought I was wetting myself! Blush
but it doesn't smell like wee. Not waters as no pooling after laying down.

I had this during my last pregnancy and developed some weird reaction to every single panty liner/towel on the market so basically was changing my knickers 4 times a day. You can imagine my delight at my MIL doing my washing when I was in labour Blush

The glamour of pregnancy!

lurking my bits feel like they are on fire with most liners- so now I either use tena or cloth liners

I had increased discharge around the same time on my last pregnancy. Midwife asked if I was wetting myself but it was not wee Blush she took a swab and the results came back to say I had strep b!

I've had increased discharge since 14 weeks and still going on now at 24 weeks. I honestly thought it was my waters trickling at one point there was so much. I hope it ends soon.

Funny you should say that Poco... I had a letter yesterday to say I've got Strep B! Could it be linked do you think?? It's worse again today. Clear, watery, not offensive though. Not seeing midwife for 2 weeks though.

I'm so glad I'm not alone in this! It's still going although much more watery and less lumpy and unpleasant. God pregnancy is glamourous isn't it?!
