  • Yes AF has a scent and may smell differently when it's leaking prior to labor-birth.

  • Mine had a smell. It was weird. Not bad, really, but this weird sweet and earthy kind of smell. My friends with kids said theirs had a smell like that, too.

  • It can be odorless or sweet. If it smells foul, that's a sign of meconium (fetal bowel movement).
