  • If your water breaks it should be like a cloudy clear color and have little or no smell to it. So basically it won't be the same color, or same smell as pee.

  • If your water broke and you stand up it will keep running down your leg.

  • urine smells like ammonia and amnionic fluid doesn't usually smell like anything, although i've heard it could smell sweet or like semen.

  • When you pee, it stops. When your water breaks, it doesn't stop poring or leaking out till you have the baby.

  • The smell of amniotic fluid is mellow and urine is strong. My water broke with my last pregnancy around 20 wks. My body kept producing it but it leaked right back out onto a pad I was wearing.
