Between pee, amniotic fluid and discharge? blush

When my waters went it was a v v distinctive smell of sex!

Amniotic fluid smells sweet and a bit like semen plus the flow of it keeps replenishing until delivery. You'll find if your lay down it might ease off because baby's head acts as a cork and when you stand up and walk about it will start flowing again

Yep! It's the smell that's the give away... if you're worried call your midwife or go to your maternity unit and get checked out!

Did I get that the wrong way round if your standing the baby's head acts as a cork and if your lay down you'll find the flow increases sorry baby brain!

Lie down for 30minutes and then stand up quickly. If it's waters there'll be a gush and a distinctive smell.

Discharge smells a bit yogurty.

Thanks all, not my waters. Being pregnant is lovely ha-ha.

You'll know if your waters go. It just keeps coming out and feels so warm, there's no control of it.
