    Does anyone know if I would know I was leaking Amniotic fluid? I have had a LOT of watery and white cm, more than usual and I'm worrying it might not be normal...is normal pregnancy cm quite thin? I know its supposed to increase but this seems a bit excessive....sorry tmi :oops:

    Bean is still moving about and I havent got any pain other than the usual aches and pains.
    Anyone else experienced this?

    Yeah TT is right, you would feel a gush and it would be going down your leg. I have alot of CM..it's normal unfortunatley, I have to wear pads every day :(

    Sorry I couldnt find the post for you hun... :wall:

    I think its totally normal to be a bit of a juicy lucy when your pregnant. CM increases a milion fold so best invest in some panty liners :)

    Mine has increased in the last couple of weeks too and we're around the same gestation so I think it is normal :)

    mines only now gone very watery.. and i thought i was leaking waters when i was at this stage with charlotte. now i know it was just cm.. when your waters break they dont nessesarily gush.. but there will be enough to completly soak through pads/panti liners and knickers...

    i thought this and went for an emergency scan anyway.
    ended up a lil embarressed...........turns out completely normal(just juicy lol)
    my midwife said that you would be going through packets and packets of pads and she also said that amniotic fluid has a kind of 'metal' smell so bend down as far as you can and have a sniff......... :lol: :lol: :lol:

    I actually used to have more CM when ovulating, I used to call it "waterfalls" and I had to change my knickers several times a day!!

    But now it's pretty normal to be honest. Maybe I'm the weird one? :rotfl:

    You're not alone! I get really paranoid about the stench, esp when doing the deed with my OH..the things he's had to put up with whilst I've been pregnant! :oops:

    Glad I am not the only one. I have to wear a pad every day so that I can wear the same trousers for two days running.
