I've seen someone ask this question before, but I cant remember what everyone said it was and Google didn't help...

I've read on here about leaking something and it smelling like draino? Like the chemical smell....I couldn;t remember if someone said it was amniotic fluid or when your water breaks or what it was. My panties have been wet today and there's a weird chemical smell, and I'm 99% sure it's not urine bc the smell is too strong and it doesn't smell like urine at all...can someone please help me :( I'm at work right now and I'm going to call the Dr as soon as I go on break.

  • I'm 33 weeks. No it doesnt have an amonia smell but it does have a sweet, chemical smell. I just called my Dr and I'm waiting on a nurse to call me back about it. My panties are really wet so I dont think it's urine. It's happened a few times the past week and a half or so but it's really bad today and I'm sitting down at work and I can smell it and it's strong.

  • It definitely could be amniotic fluid since it usually has a sweet chlorine like smell. I go in and get checked ASAP.

    but if you're leaking thats pretty much all it can be- at 33 weeks you need to go in now!!

  • "water breaking" IS amniotic fluid. They are the same thing...
