  • Amniotic fluid has a sort of sweet smell, where urine has an ammonia smell. If you think you might be leaking fluid, you should go to the ER or if it's during the day, call your OB or midwife. They can do a really simple test where I think they swab the inside of your vagina (if I remember correctly) and test it to see if it's amniotic fluid.
