I only ask , as I have been for a wee alot more frequently in the last 2hrs than normal.. the first was a very powerful wee and quitelong.. came on suddenly.. to be expected at this stage.. since then been a few times.. Babs is pshing right down, so think it cuod just be him playing on my bladder.. but thought I would ask..
Can you control your waters with pelvic floor muscles.. ( Ii.e stop them briefly..( as I could with the wee, but it really hurt to do so..

No, you cannot stop your waters from leaking. If you can stop the flow of water it is a pee.

Yes they can be mistaken for each other.

The way to smell is to see whether the liquid coming out is clear, and sweet smelling. If it is clearly urine then they won't have done.

Have you got a pad or a pot or similar you could use to check?
