Thank you for your query.
You should if possible go to the ER.
Sometimes, leaking of the amniotic fluid presents in this way.
If you can differentiate it from normal vaginal discharge by yourself, well and good.
But its always better to have an opinion.
ALso, normal vaginal discharge would not increase after activity.
Also it would be whitish and mucoid, while amniotic fluid is generally clear and watery.
It is better to consult the ER to reassure yourself.
take care.
