So I am 35 weeks and for the past few days I've been feeling like I am leaking something but it's so little of amount that I can't tell where it's coming from. I've tried feeling down there and it kinda feels like my vagina is a little wet but i don't know if this is normal. I have an appointment on Monday but I just wanted to see if any of you think that I might need to be checked before then to see if it is amniotic fluid.

sounds like just discharge. It's nasty. lol

if you think it's your fluid, put on a pad for 1 hour. if it fills up...go to the ER. that's what they'll tell you to do if you call them.

as long as your not bleeding and cramping i think you'll be ok until your appt. but it never hurts to call the doctor and let them know what's going on. someone can correct me if i'm wrong, but doesn amniotic fluid have a sweet smell to it?

If you want to get checked you can always go to the hospital. It's really easy for them to tell if it's amniotic fluid or not. The use a little test kit. It's really hard to say what you should do because if it IS your fluid and it's already been leaking a few days then you need to go in because once your water breaks there is an increased chance for infection. I think they prefer that you deliver within 24 hours of your water breaking. I went and had my "water checked" and they told me I was peeing myself...:oops: So if it's NOT your water it can be really embarrassing LoL

lol well its been so little that has leaked I just figured that if it was amniotic fluid that it should be fine until my appointment. I'd heard about it smelling sweet before too and I tried to smell it but it had no odor, but it didn't smell like pee so it makes me wonder lol.
