  • You can go to the doctor and they have a test they can do to tell you if you are leaking fluid or not.

  • it was urine. amnio fluid smells sweet. urine smells of amonia. and if the contractions are steady, even 10 minutes apart and 1 min long, call your doc as you are a week or two before the earliest they would like you to deliver.

  • Ditto what cassie said. Amniotic fluid has a really sweet, kind of earthy smell to it.
