Thanks for query.
You should go to doctor immediately,this is an indication of ruputre of your water bag associated with labour.
Just consult a doctor for proper treatment of water discharge,and give some medication to increase your pain if you are in labour,or supress your pain if you are not in labour.
Take proper hygiene care to prevent infection.
Take plenty of water orally.
Take care.

welcome to health care magic and
thanks for the question.

It is likely that what you are describing as watery discharge is amniotic fluid. That will imply that you have had a premature/prolonged rupture of membranes.
Generally, following rupture of membranes labour should start after a few hours and failure of which predisposes to neonatal infections, cord abnormalities like cord prolapse and compression, foetal distress etc.

At 40weeks + 4 days, the pregnancy is already term since 3 weeks ago. Now what should be done is that you meet your midwife for evaluation ( foetal heart beat, presentation, expected foetal size, your pelvic diametres etc) and if favourable you should be induced to deliver and also put on antibiotics.
Best regards and hope this helps you.
