  • Urine will smell like urine. Amniotic fluid has a lighter, more sweet smell to it. That's the easiest way to tell. When in doubt, go to the ER and get checked.

  • Hubby said it smells real bad. I didn't notice lol. Woke up from my nap to use the rest room and I just felt a trickle every time I got back up so I thought I had to sit back down. Hubby said the bed was damp or soaked, but I didn't notice when I got up from the nap. He said the odor was sickening though...hth

    He told me it broke...I didn't believe him so I hopped online to ask this question lol...but that was in 2001. -sigh- Memories.

  • PP - Very odd. I have never heard of amniotic fluid smelling disgusting. I know mine didn't. It smelled like sugar cookies to DH!

  • If your water has broken, you are more susceptible to infection, so when in doubt get checked out. I just know that when mine broke, I was walking in the bathroom and there was no mistake because it broke into a puddle on the floor!

  • You would know if your water broke. When my water broke with my last pregnancy...i felt like i peed myself. When I went to the bathroom there was some blood. It does have a odd odor to it.
