Then i went back to finish cooking and i didn't even have to pee but felt a twinkle and went to the bathroom and i had a water spot in my panties. but it hasn't happened no more how would i know if it was my water breaking any signs? and it didn't smell like pee (sorry if TMI)

  • It's probably not your water. I peed and it didn't smell like anything either. When my water broke, it gave way!! It's way different, you'll see what I mean when it happens.

  • you could have anything from a slow leak(which can be a little gush when ur moving esp when u change positions) to a huge gush which youll definately know..and i have read it can smell like ajax, bleach, or have a sweet smell to it like hay...

  • Would i not have contractions even with a leak maybe? Or should i just call up to the doctors and ask them. This is my first pregnancy so sometimes i dont know what to do.

  • Contractions can make you pee too. And there was no smell for me.

  • if iit is just leaking would i have contractions with it? because through my pregnancy i've had only a few contractions and the doctors had said at my last visit they were waiting on real contractions to start up or my water to break.
