  • Sounds just like regular pregnancy discharge. Amniotic fluid should be clear and it smells sweet. I had to wear a panty liner to keep my undies from getting all yuck! Hope this helps and hears wishing you a healthy baby and speedy deliver. :)

  • It might smell sweet, I've never heard of that but I would get checked out. They do a quick little test and your done. If you ARE then it's a big deal, so better safe then sorry i guess.

  • get it checked. My water broke 2 weeks before my due date but it wasn't alot just a little bit and it was a little pink. Call your doctor and see what they say.

  • With my youngest I was slowly leaking fluid from about 28 weeks until 34 weeks when they finally induced, please go get checked!
