  • call the labor and delivery room and talk to a nurse... i thought my water broke and when i called they said that if it broke it would still be trickling which it wasnt, but since yours is you should call

  • Try putting a pad on, lay down a bit, and then smell the pad - if it smells like ammonia (urine) its not amniotic fluid. It's always better to be safe then sorry, they have a wonderful little swab test they can do that tells them right away. Good luck Momma!

  • Don't be in a huge rush to go to the hospital. Call your on-call doc and tell them what you experienced...they will tell you what to do

  • if you call the number that you call to schedule appointments it should have the number you need to call or call the hospital you will be delivering and ask them for the number
