If you are worried get it checked out.  Better safe than sorry. It's hard to get a good idea of what a person means by watery discharge, because everyone is different. Discharge does increase a lot during pregnancy, i have to do a panty change at least 2x a day (i hate panty liners). Since it's mixed with your discharge it may be hard for you to tell if its your fluids, since you probably won't be able to tell the color(or lack of) or smell(amniotic fluid smells sweeter). Like i said, if you are worried i would get checked just to be safe

I had a similar experience at 23wks, I was worried and since I've had a previous early rupture of membranes, I went in to get checked. All was fine it was a combination of watery discharge and a little urinary incontinence. The best way to tell is smell really, not pleasant I know. Amniotic fluid has a distinctive smell, can be described as sweet smelling or chlorine for example. My husband described it as like nothing he'd ever smelt before - that's how distinctive it was lol. Normal healthy discharge doesn't usually have a smell and obviously we know what urine smells like lol. But always always always - if in doubt get it checked. Best wishes :)

My water broke really really with the last baby. It leaked for several hours before I went in because I thought the baby was on my bladder. My water didn't have any sort of strong smell. At the hospital they swabbed the liquid and tested it. Totally painless.
