Ok, I hope someone can advice me.
I am 33 weeks pregnant. I woke up this morning and soon as I stood up, pants felt wet. Showered and changed, then this has continued throughout the day. In the evening, after some thought, wondered if my waters are leaking. So, I seem to remember that amniotic fluid smells sweet, so started sniffing. It does smell sweet, but I still think it could just be alot ofvery wet discharge, sorry if tmi.
It seems to have calmed down now, but am lying in bed so that could be it. It is not alot anyway, my clothes are not wet through, but is definately not wee.
What exactly does amniotic fluid smell like?
Coult it just be lots of discharge, how can I tell?

Go to the hospital you big numpty - a small leak can occur and be intermittent - a midwife can check. Don't leave it and wonder and wake up at 4am with half an hour to go before you push!

Good luck - hopefully it isn't your waters, but do go get help.

Yes, go to hosp for them to check. Better safe and all that.

My Am fluid smelt sweet and also a little bit like semen, oddly.
