Unsure if water has broken

I am 32 weeks and I had sex last night. There is always semen discharge but I noticed this time there was watery fluid between my legs, a small amount, and it smelt like cleanser(bleach kinda) and semen. It happened again during the night. Throught most of the day there wasn't really any noticeable leakage, just traces of something, which I wasn't sure was urine. After I was active and walking the grocery store just now, I felt a bubble in my vagina, and felt something leaking. When I got home and checked, it was a liquid clear gooey discharge that has no odour. Can amniotic fluid be that way? I have had a lot of mucus discharge through my whole pregnancy, with it increasing last week. It stopped and now it's this clear discharge. I don't want to rush over to the hospital when I'm still unsure. But it's been almost 24 hours since I had sex and it just isnt possible that is semen. It's my second child and I was induced with the first, so I am unsure.

Re: Unsure if water has broken

It very well could be from the semen. One morning DH and I had sex very early. Several hours later I stood up from sitting at work and felt a huge gush. It was so much that it soaked through my jeans. I called my midwife and it turned out to just be leftover semen. That always smells like chlorine to me, too.

It never hurts to call your doctor just to be sure, though.
