    Sorry if this is TMI, but I need someone to clarify that this is actually normal.
    Over the past 8 weeks or so, my discharge has increased quite a lot. It's not a different colour or anything, it's the same as you would expect, but it's starting to get really annoying now.
    It sometimes gets on my leggings cos it's gone through my underwear, and sometimes randomly when I'm walking, I can feel them get a bit wet from it suddenly.
    Also sometimes, I could be doing anything, sitting, walking, changing position in bed, then all of a sudden it seems to leak out onto my knickers leaving a wet patch.

    This is normal isn't it? It's beginning to get a bit embarassing now and getting me down :(

    Sorry if it's grossed anyone out.

    Yeah that's just like me! But sometimes I can walk or something then all of a sudden its like a little gush of it :x it makes me feel really disgusting sometimes, and have to go to toilet loads more to wipe myself!

    OH noticed a mark from it on my leggings last week and I got right embarrassed and upset about it and ended up crying. Bloody hormones!

    i also seem to get a trickle if i get a BH or baby moves a lot..

    Yup completely normal!

    I think all women should be better informed of the disgusting things they will face during pregnancy!

    That's what seemed to be crossing my mind! Even though deep down I knew it wasn't anything like that, but because of the huge increase in it, I suddenly thought earlier 'oh no, what if its actually not discharge, but my waters leaking or something!' silly I know!

    Soo glad it's normal though :) phew!

    Yeah exactly! I've been at work and suddenly felt quite damp. Gone to toilet to check it out to find it looks just like clear water!
