  • I have no clue what it smells like because with each 3 of my pregnancies I had to have my bags ruptured during inducement.
    If you even suspect that your water has broken (look up signs and symptoms on a pregnancy website) then get yourself to the hospital to have it tested.
    Bring your hospital bag in case you did because you will be kept and admitted.
    Best wishes to you!

  • I don't know if amniotic fluid has a strong smell, but urine does. So either it smells like pee or it doesn't. I think that anytime you lose amniotic fluid that you need to get hold of your doctor, even if you don't have any contractions. If there is a tear in the sac, germs can get in there and get to your baby. So please call your doctor about this.

  • I agree with the other ladies, if you think your water may have broke you need to call your doctor! And take your hospital bag just in case! Good Luck!
