Your symptom gives the suspicion of leaking membranes. I advice you to immediately see your gynecologist for a proper evaluation as chances of preterm labor are high in such a case. Nitrazine papers can be used to test for the leak of liquor. Take absolute bed rest, avoid intercourse and wear a sterile sanitary napkin to monitor the amount of leak. Please have further suggestions from your doctor. Wish you good luck.
