Went in this morning for slight leaking, test came back negative. Went home and it got worse. Id be laying on my side and lift my leg and it would gush out, or once I laughed and it leaked, other times it was.just random while I was standing and wouldnt stop. Now here I am again, soaked through pad pantiws and pants while in town. My pads ive ised have all stayed white even though they were wet. Anyone else had a falae negative?

Well laughing is really common. That's usually pee to be honest. If it's actual leaking it usually happens like, you lay down and it stops and it gushes when you stand up again. You could go back and try again, but I don't think I've heard of it being wrong. Perhaps ask for an u/s to measure fluid levels? If you're leaking that much, I'd think it would be obvious. . .

If I remember correctly what the docs told me is that it's hard to tell if the amniotic fluid is dried up when you get there. If you're not actively leaking at the doctor, they have to do special tests to check for "ferning" or something like that.



Don't rely too heavily on that info, though. It's been a while, and I could be remembering wrong lol. Anyway, I'd go back in.

If you think you're leaking that much, request an ultrasound. If you were truly leaking as much as you say, the baby would not have any fluid left around them and would be inactive. I know first hand because my second pregnancy I leaked for two weeks before they figured it out, and I ended up having an emergency csection because there was no fluid left around her.

I've gotten 4 negatives when it really was broken. Catch some in a cup and bring it in. That's what I had to do with my youngest son. My water broke around 22 weeks. Nobody believed me. They sent me home. Then it must have plugged somehow because nothing else happened until 26 weeks. I gushed everywhere. Got another negative. They did some other test and got a positive then did the strip again and got a positive. I was admitted for 9 days then convinced them to send me home because once again I wasn't leaking anymore. That night I gushed again. Went back to the hospital and got a negative. Went a week leaking before I finally brought it in in a plastic baggie. Positive.



It also happened with my oldest but I stayed and insisted and they did the different test and got positive.

This is what happened due to the fact they forgot me and it dried while in the waiting room. They did a microscope test and I was leakibg. Was induced and nine hours later had dd. :-)
