  • if it smells like cleaner, that's pee.
    but if you're worried, go to a doctor.

  • It can smell sweet. Some women report that it smells like Commet cleaner. But then in my opinion, that was what my discharged smelled like while pregnant. Determining whether your water broke or if it's just discharge depends on the amount. If it's just some when you wipe, then your water didn't break. If you need a panty liner then your water broke. For some women it's a steady trickle and for others it's a gush.
