  • The only way to know for sure is to have your doctor examine you.

  • You get off the computer and go to the emergency room.

  • Yep, even if you are unsure, just rush yourself to the ER. They will quickly do a PH test. Basically grab some of the fluid from your vagina to see if it could be amniotic fluid.

    Just don't wait for any more answers and GO!

  • Is it odorless? How little are we talking? It's very likely that it was just pee, but if you're really worried, go to labor and delivery!

  • Go to the ER. They have strips that they can use to show if the fluid is amniotic or urine or whatever.....

  • A way that you can tell if it isn't urine is if you lay down for a few minutes then stand back up and it leaks again then it is a possibility. Go to the ER to make sure though.

  • Go to the ER right now, and call your doctors office on the way to give them a heads up of what is going on.
