  • call your doctor and explain whats going on, he will call you back and answer any questions you have, especially being that far along, you want to be sure.

  • Smell it. What does it smell like? Amniotic fluid smells like semen. It also tastes sweet. Most likely it is pee from a verry prego bladder. That is what my doctor told me when I had this with my second. Good luck!

  • Amniotic fluid can be clear, pink, brown, or green. It also has an unusual smell that some people compare to Comet cleanser. If the fluid looks yellowish and smells of ammonia, you're probably experiencing urine leakage. This frequently happens to women toward the end of pregnancy.
