Im freaking out because all of a sudden today I noticed my underwear was a bit wetter and smells,super sweet. To make matters worse, I'm two hours from home because it is my wedding anniversary, and also the one year anniversary from when I had a d&c last year. We went away to try to have a good anniversary. I'm reading everywhere that amniotic fluid smells sweet. And since I have been on nifedipine to stop contractions since my doctor was worried they would cause my water to break... I double freaked out.

Go get it checked if you are really worried.. But vaginal discharge changes a lot during pregnancy.. You could just be going through a "watery" phase.. Also, leaking urine is super super common :.

Please go get it checked, they can swab it really easy to see if it's amnio fluid. KUP, I hope it's just extra fluids or sweat despite how gross that sounds!

TMI but I have been very wattery down there since I got pregnant, I wear liners daily just to stay dry. So like the others have said, maybe just a wet day?

I called the doctor, waiting for her to call me back. I probably just freaking out.

That is annoying they haven't called back yet! How are you "feeling"? One thing I was always told was to put a pad on. If it keeps getting wet over and over...its most likely your amniotic fluids.

I'll try that. I'm a little less freaked since she hasn't called, and she is usually awesome about that. It seems to have slowed since I changed my underwear and the smell isn't as strong. (tmi)

When my water broke with my daughter I put a maxi pad on it was soaking wet within 15minutes. Also I didn't have a gush I just had a drip the whole time. I am not saying that is not the same thing you are going through, but I don't think it would slow down if it was your amniotic fluids.

I talked to my doctor, I see her tomorrow anyway. She doesn't seemed too concerned. The smell isn't so strong today and (tmi) I am not as wet. I'm wondering if it was the food I ate or something. Anyway, I have my weekly non stress tomorrow, I should know more then.

I am generally loathe to share this kind of information, but I've noticed a sweet smell off and on for a while. I hope she can give you some information though, better to be safe
