How do you know for sure( besides going to the hospital) your leaking water. I know it's suppose to smell sweet (so ive heard)but like what kind of sweet sugar sweet or candy sweet like what does sweet smell like lol. Also can you leak slowly like my underwear was wet when I went to a movie at 6 ish ( tmi but happened after I went to the bathroom) and then it's been damp ever since just went to the bathroom and it my underwear was wet again so I'm kinda confused. I've been layi g down for a lil but and stood up but no gushes so idk lol any help / advice would be good :)

If it was damp before, and you didn't change it, I doubt it would have dried during that time.
Make sure you have some dry undies on. Drink some water. Lay down for 15-20 minutes and then stand up. If you don't feel anything or your undies aren't wet then I would doubt it is your water.

I think it can be hard to tell. Discharge can be pretty heavy at this point.



You can try laying down for 1/2 an hour or so and then standing up. If there's a small gush, it could be your water.



Amniotic fluid does have a sweet smell. I'd say it's pretty comparable to hay. Weird, but true. lol.

when my water broke it was a slow leak, it felt like I was on my period. turns out I had a pre-sack that broke.

My dr said for some reason I had a small pre-sack before the babies sack and that's what had broke. It was small little gushes of water. Nothing compared to the real water breaking lol

This. Also, sometimes you'll leak urine without knowing, and it doesn't always have a smell. I wouldn't worry about it, just don't put anything in your vag. I personally wouldn't let the doctor do cervical checks at appointments, either. The risk of infection doesn't come from having broken/leaking membranes, it comes when people put hands up there (or anything else) afterward.
