  • IT SHOULD BE CLEAR. MY DOCTOR SAID NO NOT PUT A PAD ON. PUT TOILET PAPER ON YOUR PANTIES AND IF THE TOILETPAPER GETS SOAKED RATHER THAN TINY DROPS YOU NEED TO GET CHECKED. THE DOCTOR WILL TEST IT.

  • if you are leaking amniotic fluid ( it wont smell like pee - it will be "sweet" smelling)
    leak should worsen when laying down and ease up & almost stop when standing (cause babys head is used almost like a cork) * your fluid wont "run dry" because it is continually produced until delivery.
    call a Dr is you are thinking you have a leak because this could be life threatening for the baby if you arent due anytime soon
