If you are unsure about anything you can always call L&D to ask any questions. They are happy to answer them for you! I had this very same question & called them for advise. I was told to wear a pad. If I could soak it within an hour to come to the hospital that my fluid was leaking. It was not a constant flow of fluid, but more like I was peeing/leaking as I walked or sat up quickly kwim? I did not realize just how much until I wore a pad.

I also want to point out I was far enough along to safely go into labor.

Good luck! And be safe!

I leaked fluid for a few days before I realized what it was. It was wet, more like water than a discharge. At first I thought I was leaking urine, but I knew I wasn't. I never gave it any thought and I had to change my underwear a couple of times a day and it was getting annoying until it popped in my head that this may actually be something more! I went in and they can d 3 quick test to determine if you are leaking, one is a ph level test, the other is a visual to see if any fluid is pooling inside and I can't remember the third because it has been 3 years now. Biggest difference from someone who experienced this, fluid is wet like water, whereas discharge has a different consistancy.

I also wanted to add that it wasn't a lot of fluid, I had a tiny leak. After reading your post, it sounds like this is it for you. It sounds like what I experienced. I gave birth one week early.
