  • I would lean towards urine. Your body releases hormones while you are pregnant that help to relax the muscles down there. If you already had issues this would just make them worse. It is normal for pregnant ladies to have a hard time holding it.

  • If you go to the hospital, they can swab you quickly with a little strip that will tell you if it is amniotic fluid. I would bet urine, but you can never be too careful.

  • I would say urine...Smell it if it smells like urine or has an odor then its pee. If it doesnt have an odor or had blood new/old it could be fluid. THe above post is correct the hosp. can do a swab and tell u either or. Never to careful.....I am 26weeks along and was in there last night for Contractions due too being out in the Sun to long at the water park earlier yesterday!!
