Hello, I'm Dr Manos, M.D., board certified ObGyn. At 16 weeks you would be concerned if it was amniotic fluid leaking this early. It probably would gush more than drops. It could be urine as the pregnancy is getting big enough to press on the bladder. I think you should contact your ob doctor to check any of the discharge for amniotic fluid. They might do an ultrasound to see if the amniotic fluid volume has changed.

the amniotic fluid test strips OTC
do you think that are accurate to use or a ultrasound is needed

They're valuable if they turn the color right off

It actually measures acid level and if the number is ***** 8 then could be amniotic fluid. Vaginal discharge less than 6
