Leaking amniotic fluid?

I'm not asking about myself no, I was just wondering when the time comes, how will I know? Will I just be 'extra wet' [tmi!] or will it actually be in my underwear? Note: I'm a first time mom, so I'm curious.

Can you leak with a closed cervix?

  • You can leak but not likely. If your water does break on it's own it will be a huge gush and then you will just keep leaking.

  • You can leak if you have had a tummy trama, but its very rare,

    If your leaking, you could feel a trickle *constant trickle* or,....it might just be a small amount at a time your underoos will be a lil damp!

    You can leak with a closed cervix yes,
    Just like when i had my AMNIO, they told me, that if i were to leak ....it would be a small amount and be changing underwear every 15-30 minutes, and i would have to call asap, even though my cervix was closed,

    so yes..you can...

  • I've had two babies and it has happened both ways.

    the first I had a slow leak and ultimately the doc broke the bag all the way at the hospital...If that happens they will want to induce to cut the risk of infection.

    the second , all I can say is thank God I was in the shower when it happened. It was a gusher! lol
