Yeh I've had 'watery discharge' with all of mine. Always had me wondering if this was it. Yes it IS suppose to smell like semen, I remember with #5 I could have sworn that it smelt like semen so I went in to check and it came back negative but I reckon I was having a slight leak at that stage, because the semen smell was really strong...but anyway.
When the waters break naturally it all depends on where the bag breaks and where the baby's head is in relation to the break. So for instance, if you have a hind water leak where the bag breaks up the top somewhere it would be a slow leak...kind of like what you described actually. If it breaks lower then there will be huge gush and it will just keep coming. Kinda like someone got a glas of water and just tipped it out in one big gush...then it just keeps coming...I got several gushes with one of mine.
If the baby's head is very low it can kind of plug the opening, I've heard of some women would give birth then all the waters followed because the head plugged the uterus and the water couldn't come after the initial break (small amount)
In your case, if they're saying that it's not amniotic fluid, I would just go with that for now. In my experience with funny runny mucus...it's not much longer. Things are definetly starting to happen so I say do a few squats and some walking and if you want take some evening primrose oil to really get those braxtons going. Quite honestly I wouldn't expect that you're going to be intact for too much longer
