For the last few days, my underwear keeps getting wet all the time. I'm 28 weeks. Is this normal?

  • Maybe your just urinating and not noticing it because that is possible when you laugh or sneeze.

  • If it doesn't smell like urine....I would be worried. Are they soaking wet? Is it clear? I have heard the amniotic fluid smells a little sweet...and nothing like urine. I would take a sniff and see.......I would be very worried that my water broke early. Good luck.

  • I've had this problem since about 28 weeks too, I'm 32w 5d. I use a light pad in my underwear now. Mine isn't gushing, squirting or constantly just leaves a big spot on my underwear sometimes. My OB said it was normal for you to have extra fluid and not to worry about it. Just watch for any blood, mucous or dripping and dripping of fluid.

  • By the way, not all urine smells strong. /So it might be urine and you wouldn't even know it

  • I had a similar problem and my OB said it was normal as well. You should still tell your doc about the problem at your next check up!

  • Most likely just pee, but if it worries you call your OB and make an appointment to get it checked. It happens alot... I can say that everytime I laugh, cough, sneeze or just get up too fast I find myself heading to the bathroom... UGH the joys of being pregnant!

  • I did the same thing. If you are very concerned, go to your doctor. They will use an acidity strip to see if it's urine or amniotic fluid. Very embarassing, but totally normal!
