is amniotic fluid sticky when it dries? i read somewhere that its sticky but regular discharge can be a little sticky too so im just a little confused on how i will be able to tell the difference between discharge and a fluid leak. now that im getting closer to the baby being born i want to make sure i know all this stuff.

Re: fluid

I can't remember if I read it before, but why are you being induced? Just curious. Oh wait, is it because of the GD?

Re: fluid

My water leaked with my first and it was not sticky at all. It feels more like you went the bathroom in your pants and I was only leaking a little bit when you sit for awile and then stand you can feel fluid coming out. I hope that helps a little
Best Wishes and Good luck!
