To moms that have had babies before and your water broke --- does it smell???

I was watching 16 and pregnant last night on MTV and when the girls water broke -- they seemed to make a big deal about the smell....so now I am just curious?????

Thanks Ladies -- sorry if this is an odd and gross question.

They say it has a sweet smell... but when my water broke (2 of the kids) I didn't notice a smell. And when they have broken my water at the hospital I never noticed a scent either.

I've only had mine broken for me, but didn't notice a smell...maybe they're making a big deal about it because they're 16..lol? Seems teenagers make a big deal out of everything!

I don't know since this is my first...but I just have to say, isn't that show a little ridiculous and addicting? Sometimes I just want to jump through the TV and strangle those girls (and boys). It's scary that some of them will be raising a baby!

My water broke at home with DD and it was a huge gush that just kept leaking everywhere (I actually went to the hospital with a towel between my legs). Anyway, I did not notice any smell at all, but when I told the nurses that it broke at home, they told DH that he needs to get it cleaned up ASAP because it can start to smell.

I don't really know because my water always HAS to be broken because I must have tough sacs or something. LOL. I never noticed a smell but never got all that close to it either. Hmmm..

Well, I never noticed it with my own deliveries (too focused on other things) but I have noticed that there is a bit of a smell that I associate with amniotic fluid when I'm attending a birth. It's not a strong smell or anything, and it's not bad, but it's there. Can't really describe WHAT it smells like though...

Why do they even promote a show like that? 16 year olds should not be having babies!

That girls mom was soo stupid!!!!! it's like she wanted to hide the fact that her daughter was pregnant and then wanted control over the baby when she had the baby!!!

The reason I asked about the smell is because the mom made a big deal about the smell too.

Thanks for all the imputs ladies!!!!
