Can you leak amniotic fluid with a closed cervix?

So I had an ultrasound yesterday and found out that my fluids are low. So they sent me upstairs for a stress test and found out that I'm having contractions. But I'm not dilated at all. I've been reading that amniotic fluid smells sweet, and I've noticed for a couple days now that my pee smells weird.

But my doctor didn't say anything about me leaking or why my fluids are low, so I have no clue. Can you leak with a closed cervix?

Did anyone get contractions and weren't dilated and how long did it take you to dilate?

With my second baby I started leaking at 30 weeks and it showed up on the scan that my fluids were low. I dont remember them mentioning that my cervix was open when they examined me so I'm guessing it wasn't. I guess it wouldnt have to be open very much though to leak fluid though so maybe it was open enough to leak but not enough to feel xx

Yes you can leak through a 'closed' cervix because all that means is that it's not labouring or actively dilating. Hope all goes well hun x
