  • I heard it smells sweet too. I'd go to the doc. You may be leaking.

  • Go to your doc and get checked out you could be leaking. I was told that its more of a RUSHING RIVER when it happens and my doc did not think I was leaking and let it go. Well I when I went to the doc like 3 days later. I was infact leaking and the levels were lower and if you deliver a DRY PREGNACY (NO FLUID) its painful I am told plus the baby can get sick. I was always told better to be safe then sorry. My baby head was bloking the flow so that what could be happening to you. Hope this helps.
