Has anyone experienced an amniotic fluid slow leak before?


Just looking for some women with an experience in a slow waters leak early in pregnancy and what the outcomes were?

I have suspected for 3 weeks now I was leaking fluid my underwear was always wet and sometimes I would be watching tv and eat up and I could feel a small gush come out. I went to the drs they sent me for a scan and said everything was fine ( i am 21 weeks tomorrow) anyway it kept happening as well as pain and pressure in my cervix so I bought so amniosense pads with the test strip in them and I put one on yesterday and it was positive just to make sure put another one and within 20 minutes it was also positive. I am currently waiting to be seen to have it officially tested and trying to not freak out. But thought I would see what others have experienced with this.

Thanks hun. I went to the doctors and they called the city hospital (we live in a country rural town) and I am headed up there Saturday for a scan and to be admitted and tested. They have put me on antibiotics to stop infection. Hoping the scan goes well on Saturday and trying not to stress to much!

I hope it all gets sorted! I have been feeling extra wet as well, and am thinking of buying those pads and checking for myself.

I donít know how well they work but I havenít seen any bad reviews. All 3 of mine so far have come back positive. I had a scan 2 weeks ago that said my fluid levels were fine but I just wasnít confident it wasnít my waters thatís why I bought the pads and like my dr said if it is a really small leak the fluid levels wouldnít be affected to much itís more the infection that is concerning. This is my 4th pregnancy and I have never experienced this amount of watery discharge, discharge yes but not like straight water. I have also been losing chunks of my mucous plus for the last 2 weeks but I know that can rejuvenate. I guess I will know Saturday if they truely work or not. Yesterday and today though the water has increased so I am leaning more towards they are right.

Itís a scary thing isnít it! I have had two or three occasions where it dropped down my leg but mostly itís just a slow leak if thatís what it is.
I hope yours turns out to be nothing also!!
I have started having tightenings today but not sure if itís bh or the beginning of something worse Saturday could not come faster

ugh that is so hard to wait. are you trying to take it easy, like get your feet up throughout the day?
i had a bleed about a week ago and put myself on a semi-bed rest for a couple days. i was able to go in right during the bleed and see that baby was fine. not totally sure why i had a big bleed, but then it turned into a light spotting and then stopped by the following day.
it was nerve-racking but so glad i got in. my anatomy scan is monday so i am just hoping things hang in there till then and get the reassurance that everything is okay.

hope saturday can come soon for you!

I have 3 boys age 5,3 and almost 2 so it’s a bit hard to rest to much but doing the best I can.
I live in a small country town and there is no ultrasounds here so I have to go out of town to be scanned and I was already booked in for my anatomy scan on Saturday so they said to just wait until then and get everything thoroughly checked because it’s only a very small leak if it definitely is that babies shouldn’t be in to low of a level it was more the infection they were worried about.

Having a bleed can be so scary I bled with my first 3 for alldifferent lengths of time 17 weeks. 24 weeks and then the last until I gave birth due a placental abruption, the others were due to subchorionic haematomas which resolves thenselves. But this time I haven’t had anything since 7 weeks other than a tiny bit of light red sometimes mixed in with the bits of plug I am losing.
I hope everything turns out ok on Monday for your scan. Pregnancy can be such a worry when you are having even minor complications
