Re: how do i tell if i am leaking amniotic fluid or its just excessive discharge?
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!
