The increased watery discharge is not a abnormal issue during pregnancy. Due to the elevated hormone levels, the vaginal discharge may be increased.

Using panty liners or using a sanitary pads would help to manage the issue. There is no need for any form of medical intevention or treatment.

In case, you have foul smelling or purulent discharge, bleeding, abdominal pain, burning micturition, etc, it would indicate that you need proper medical evaluation and help.

Consult your doctor for proper help in such circumstances.
