Leaking waters?!

Right so im 33 weeks today with second baby, went in to hosp yday with possible leaking waters.
The dr did a test with a swab which tests for amniotic fluid which came up with a faint positive line. They also did an internal and couldnt see anything unusual so sent me home and said to go back in next couple hrs if i could still feel the fluid.

Went back in today as could feel this trickling throught the night and this morning and was given another internal(no signs or anything) and another swab which came back negative. I was also given a scan and the sonographer said the fluid was 'on the low side'. Then the dr said they dont think that its my waters so can go home and to only go back if it gets worse.
I am abit unsure what to do as can still feel the trickling and have also read online that some people have been told all is okay and then suddenly gone into labour a couple of days later?
It also annoyed me that unless there is a gush i will have to put up with this for another 7-9 weeks?! Even though i can feel it coming out throughout the day and night!
Anyone else had anything similar?

I would just keep an eye on it and if you're really worried then speak to your midwife or ring your local triage to ask advice. I learnt that some doctors and midwives can be very dismissive. If your not happy keep calling.

It was the triage that i went to both times, yesterday they were really helpful and nice and today it was like they were making out i was lying.. Just the way that basically ill have to put up with it? Even though the fluid is on the low side and i can still feel it theyve just advised to ring back but only if it gets worse... Dont really know who to turn to when the hospital are the ones that have turned me away

Keep a close eye and keep going back if concerned.

You would still just have to put up with it even if it was confirmed rupture of membranes, although your pregnancy would be monitored more closely.
Wear sanitary towels, monitor closely yourself. Keep an eye on temperature, fetal movements
