Can Amniotic Fluid leak VERY slowly?


I am wondering if I am just leaking some urine or if it is amniotic fluid. This just started today. Everyone once in awhile I'll get a LITTLE kind of gush - I do mean little - but it is enough I can feel it coming out - of liquid. I am not sure how to tell if it is urine or amniotic fluid. I THINK it is probably urine as after I go to the bathroom the problem seems to fix itself for awhile, but it's been going on all day now. It was enough to soak my panty liner and a bit beyond but it took all day long to do that. I am guessing if it were AF it would have been much more fluid than that? Do you think I should bother going in now to have it tested or just wait to see if contractions start. I would think that if if were amniotic fluid it would be accompanied by some kind of contractions??

I'll give a quick call too just to see what they say but was curious what you all thought.

Calling wouldn't hurt. Also, try smelling it. I believe amniotic fluid doesn't have a strong smell and is somewhat sweet.

I did try to smell it and I couldn't really smell anything. It didn't smell like urine anyway. I put on a fresh pad when I got home from work so I'll check again. Going to go hop in the shower because now I feel all ucky.

Hmm then I'm not really sure if it can leak that slowly I know that it doesn't always gush out though. It's always better to call L&D or your doctor just to be sure.

well you're far enough along that I HOPE it's amniotic fluid, haha.

I thought I was leaking a few times.. and every time I got checked, it turned out to be urine/discharge (it didn't smell like urine or anything).

and if it's a slow leak, it will replenish itself eventually.

good luck though

i have been having the same problem for the past month or so,
in the past week it turned pink.

ive been to L&D a bunch of times, had a bunch of ultrasounds...
they tell me everything is fine,
they have done tests to check if it is was waters, and they say its not..
im not totally convinced,

so if i were you- and if it keeps happening, i would give them a call.

Good luck! just try to relax!

I guess the only other explanation is baby has dropped even FURTHER because I definitely haven't had this problem before today. Seems like whenever I change positions I can feel some come out.

UGH I want it to be lol. We'll see though. I have an appt with my OB tomorrow morning anyway.

Sometimes I have little gushes like you're describing and for me it's just urine. It's really annoying and when it happens I can't even tell that I need to use the bathroom. Every time I have it happen I have to change, but luckily it has only happened a few times over the past few weeks. Hopefully it is fluid for you though

Yeah really I imagine it is wishful thinking on my part. I think it'd be more if it were really amniotic fluid
