How do i tell if my ambiotic(SP?) fluid is leaking? without going to the ER I dont have a car to go. My SO is at work. I am leaking something. It is clear, isnt sticky, mucusy or smelly. It does have a smell just not a distinct one. It leaks little gushes every 20min or so. I have been having pains all day in my pelvic area and back. I'm only 32wks. Put a call into dr waiting for them to call back.

ILOVEYALL i thank you for your answer the first time.

  • Change your clothing and move around. If it is amniotic fluid it will continue to leak and get your clothing wet. My water broke at 32 weeks exactly. I wasn't sure if my water had broke or I had an accident. I changed my clothes and walked around and within a few minutes they were wet again. Labor pains can also happen in the back.

  • I think I'd actually go to the hospital and talk to someone in Labor & Delivery.

  • I have been told that amniotic fluid smells sweet, mine never broke on it's own. My mucus plug liquified and would gush out. It freaked me out everytime.
