  • I did that...If you cant stop it...then it is amniotic fluid...you can stop your pee stream.

    I thought I had peed in my pants until I realized I had NO control over when it came out...lol.

    mine started off very slowly and increased over time...

  • if u r standing up the head usually blocks it from coming out too much, but if u are laying down, watch out...its like a tidal wave...you have to smell it, if it is sour smeeling it is urine, if it has a sweet smell it was amniotic fluid....

  • With me, it was quite a lot. At first I thought I peed my pants, so I went to the bathroom, sat down, and figured out I couldn't make it stop... After those first initial gushes, it pretty much went down to a trickle.

  • I never had mine break naturally, but when they did it in the hospital it was like a big gush both times I had my boys. hope that helps.

  • How far along are you? If you are past 20wks I would go into L&D and have it checked.

  • I was told to first try giving a bit of a wiff of the fluid. No way can you mistake the smell of urine. Than to place a pad on and check it frequently for more fluid or blood. I had an accident recently and all it was, was the baby kicked my bladder super hard,
