discharge colour/leaking fluid?!

Hello all, so i'm 34+1 and for the last few weeks i've needed to use panty liners everyday as otherwise i get a dump of discharge pretty often through the day that destroys my pants, pretty standard for pregnancy I know.

My question is, what colour is everyone else's who also does this? The panty liner always has a slight yellow tinge and I'm starting to panic a little that it may in fact be amneotic fluid I am leaking rather than just discharge? It's never enough to warrant more than one panty liner per day... just a bit of advice please?

Many thanks ladies!!

weird question but does it smell? You could have an infection.

I get occasional white discharge. Midwife says its ok as long as it didn't smell or have a funny colour. I'd contact the midwife to check what they say.


Hmm not that I've noticed, I guess I'll smell it haha!


Lol. Glamourous pregnancy issues.



Have you spoke to your midwife there is a number of things this could be .. there is a small chance you can leak amniotic fluid and you would need antibiotic cover , It could also be discharge as that can become heavy especially with thrush . It could also be urine but the smell is quite distinct ! The joys of pregnancy eh!

Slightly yellow tinge is normal. If it's smelly/green/itchy then I'd get it checked out. Doesn't sound like liquor fluid though... in general that tends to comes with a gush as if you peed yourself. If you're not sure you can always discuss with ur midwife

You might be experiencing pregnancy related incontinence. Your baby is growing rapidly and all that weight of your uterus is pressing down on your bladder and when you move around/bend you might be passing little amounts of urine. Have you been doing pelvic floor exercises? Anyway if you are worried you should contact your midwife/GP.
