  • If it smells like pee then I am sure that is what it is.

  • no you wouldnt necessarily start having contractions. If it is a consistant leak then I would maybe go in just to have it tested. But if it is just when you have to go pee then dont worry about it.

  • hmmm I don't know, I was guessing your water broke, but it shouldn't smell like pee. If your water did break usually doctors will give you 24 hours before you go into labor, some will give 48 hours.

  • If it smells like pee it probably is... the bigger the baby gets the more likely you are to have urine leakage.. even after birth! I remember being in my third trimester, I had to wear pantyliners because it seemed that every movement I made I would get t least a few drops of leakage

  • also, if thats what it is you should probably do kegels, actually everyone should do kegels, especial whjile your pregnant and postpartum. If youre not sure how, ask your doctor.

  • Not sure about it being the bags of water or pee but I know that you don't always have contractions when your bag of water leaks or breaks my sisters water broke and an hour or so later she started having contractions and it might just be pee or some of the mucus still
