Sweat or water breaking? RadioactiveCat 2 kids; Roanoke, VA, United States 22958 posts

I have been walking all day. Not out in the heat though.



I noticed my pants were damp, and I am 98% sure it's not pee. That almost narrows it down to sweat or water breaking and leaking slowly.



I changed, but does anyone know how to distinguish if it is sweat or amniotic fluid?

I know my sweat smells like sweat. Smell it..



Amniotic fluid smells sweet.

I hear the amniotic fluid smells sweet... most people say "you will know when your water breaks" but mine was a slow leak and I wasn't sure, I just went about my business and went to the hospital 4 hours later to be checked just in case.

Amniotic fluid is basically your baby's urine, so it might smell like pee. But just wait and see if you leak anymore.

Do the pad thing. Put one on. If it fills up in an hour or less it's your water breaking slowly.

From what I hear, you're supposed to put a pad on and lay on your side. If when you get up in half an hour, your pad gets soaked and the liquid has a faintly sweet smell, it's your amniotic fluid.

Let us know what's up!
