Does vaginal discharge increase at the end of pregnancy? 37 weeks/ open

I'm just wondering because, there have been a few times where I've felt excess wetness (sorry tmi) and worried that my water broke (I know that usually happens about 1 in 10 women on its own).  But it always seems to just be discharge. It's probably more than through out this whole pregnancy.  Is this normal?

My water broke with my daughter and it was a big gush and it didn't stop - it was pretty gross - it is different with every woman though - this is just what happen to me - I had no pain at all none

I have had bad discharge my entire pregnancy - needing to wear at least a panty liner if not a small pad the whole 9 months.  Once even going to the doctor thinking it was fluid.  Now at 37 weeks just yesterday I thought my water broke too.  It came right through everything my panties were soaked but I know it didn't smell sweet so I guess the baby just pushed some stuff out of there.  hahahaha  I have no shame anymore I tell everybody and I only wear black pants.

Completely normal.  Usually when your water breaks, it's a gush or constant trickle...  You'd know if your waterbroke, especially at 37 weeks, you would most likely start contractions.

You and I are on the same boat. I've had a lot as well. I was using about 3 panty liners a day but I have now started to double them up (1. for complete coverage 2. for frear of my water breaking) . I'm noticing it's increasing again though. Gosh! how much more could possibly come out? I'll be happy once I'm back to normal and dont feel like a faucet..lol
