What do you know about leaking fluid?

I am 8 months pregnant and my doctor said I am leaking fluid. What is the seriousness of this? Has anyone had this happen to them?

  • Is it a slow leak of your amniotic fluid? If this is the case, it can reseal itself and may not be a serious thing. It just means there is a small tear in your amniotic pouch. You don't want to introduce bacteria into your vagina, so no sex/vaginal exams, etc. Drink lots of water to replenish lost fluids.
