  • You can been seen immediately and find out very quickly for sure with a ph test strip. Amniotic fluid is clear and has no odor.

  • They say that if you are leaking amniotic fluid, you will experience a gush when you go from sitting to standing. I have to change my underwear at least 3 times a day, due to high amounts of cervical discharge, which is completely normal during pregnancy. Amniotic fluid should be clear, odorless, watery, and NOT sticky.

  • How far along are you? I would call L&D and ask to speak with a nurse. It could just be a bladder leak but I would call to be on the safe side.

  • Definitely get checked out. I have had a high risk pregnancy due to low amniotic fluid, which can be very dangerous for the baby. (I didn't have a leak, a faulty placenta, but it still results in low fluid.) Drink more fluid to help increase your amniotic fluid. THIS WORKS! I went from a fluid level of 1.8 (very dangerous) to a normal ranged 9.
