    What would happen if my waters were leaking but I didn't pick up on it and thought it was pee or very watery discharge?
    And contractions didn't start? X

    i do worry about this as i did have reduced waters in my 1st pregnancy. but that wasnt because they were leaking, apparently they can reduce but can also replenish themselves?

    Anyway back to the question my sis had leaking waters when she was pg but it was a constant trickle that would dribble down her leg and it dosent have a smell like wee does so you would be able to rule out peeing yourself.

    I thought this was happening to me so I asked midwife, She said you would feel wet down there all the time even if it was just dribbling out. I am sure I have also read that the body continues to make amniotic fluid until delivery.

    If you are concerned though ring midwife/labour ward to get checked out.

    someone told me you can get sanitary towels that detect amniotic fluid....hang on will see if I can see them.

    the midwife told me the discharge is totally normal and increases the closer you get to keep the VJ lubricated...I tried not to think too hard about why that is a good thing as my eyes started to water....
