I'm pregnant with my first, so I can't really talk from experience, but from what I've read, amniotic fluid has a sweet smell to it, so if it had no smell, it might have just been cervical mucus (which keeps increasing throughout the pregnancy...yay!). I guess it's not uncommon to mistake the two. However, it's probably a good idea to have it checked out. It's pretty easy to check. I believe they just do a swab from your vagina to check for amniotic fluid.

Oh, and please don't feel embarrassed to go in. Better safe than sorry. Plus, I'm sure many women come in for much less valid reasons than that.

Best of luck with everything and keep us posted!

I hope you're feeling better, honey!

In terms of water breaking, I go in tomorrow or my appointment. I haven't been in lately as the nor'eastern storm cancelled my appointment. But after every time I pee, when I pull my pants back up I feel like I'm leaking. Not necessarily from my urethra, to be honest I can't distinguish where I feel it coming from.

Please pray that tomorrow I'll get the news that I'm at least a little bit dilated and that my cervix has softened some!

This is kind of what happened to me yesterday. I could swear I leaked out water. Called my OB and they told me to go to the ER in case my water had ruptured. Got there and they said my water didn't break but I had a case of bacterial vaginosis! I still would like to know what the clear liquid was that came out of me! I am 32weeks 4 days pregnant with my little boy.
