  • When my water was leaking, I was certain it was urine. I'd go in and have them test it with litmus paper, especially when you're this early still. Hopefully, it's just urine, and the worst will only be the embarrassment. Good luck!!!

  • Smell it. If it smells like urine, it likely is. If it smells sweeter, it may be from your bag of water.

  • I agree. Give doc a call. Sometimes when your water breaks contractions don't set in right away. How far along are you?

  • when your water breaks its not always a gush of water it can be a light trickle I would call your Dr and see if they want you to come in for an exam the tighting most likely are contractions at 1st they don't hurt as bad but as labor goes on the get way stronger.
