    Default Discharge at 27 weeks. Help!

    Ive had this watery/milky discharge for atleast the last two weeks. Is this normal? I had an appointment with my midwife today and she said it is more than likely normal discharge due to the pregnancy. But now I cant help thinking maybe there is a sml tear and I am leaking amniotic fluid.. My baby is kicking and moving ALOT. Almost all day long. Should I go to the hospital? Should I relax?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    if it's milky, I don't think it would be amniotic fluid. From what I've seen/read it's normally clear or have a pinkish tinge.

    If you're worried, can you check with your GP?

    If it smells funny like fishy, it could be an infection and you need help fast, I think it is called Vaginal Bacterialosis...or something similar, this one caused my DD to be born prem as it turned into uterus infection. I did not look for help as I did not know about it at the time and my nose was blocked, I could not smell a thing. Amniotic fluid I was told smells like sperm and is pinkish. If you are worried I would go have a swab taken for infection.

    It could be alot of things: thrush, bacterial vaginosis, normal preg discharge, other infections or fluid (doesn't sound like fluid tho). Def get a swab done tho to put your mind at ease
