Re: how do i know if i'm losing amniotic liquid?

First of all, if you are really concerned you should talk to your doctor about it. I was always worried about this and mine was able to explain some things to me. Second remember that as gross as this may sound while we are pregnant we leak a lot of stuff (discharge, urine, etc.)...and in my experience the further along I got the more "stuff" that happened.

Also- there was once during an exam that my DOCTOR was concerned I might be losing amniotic fluid and she sent me for an ultrasound IMMEDIATLY...I was literally in ultrasound 10 minutes after she voiced her concerns to me. (Everything ended up being just fine)

Hopefully somebody else can explain more, but my doctor told me that amniotic fluid is sweet smelling...

How far along are you?

Good luck, wish I could be more help!

Hi Sarah,

Thanks for answering so fast.

I think it's more so what you mentioned about "leaking" all kinds of stuff.
I'm 27 weeks now but had a stillbirth at 38 weeks so somewhat more nervios about this pregnancy.

I'll def go to the doctor if I "leak" again.

kind regards

Re: how do i know if i'm losing amniotic liquid?

I leaked fluid for a couple of days before it occured to me what it was. I had a tiny, tiny, tiny leak. I was a week from my due date. I noticed that my underwear were slightly wet, enough to annoy me and I started to change them a couple of times a day. I thought maybe it was discharge, but it was more wet. Then I smelled them because they say you can pee a little, but it was not that either. After a couple of days I became irritated and it occured to me that I was leaking. Less than 24 hours I had my baby naturally. So, either you can leak very slowly or your water can break and gush.
