Leaking Watery Fluid

Alison - September 21

I've been leaking small amounts of what looks and smells like water (1/2 tsp., a few times a day) for two days. I saw my doctor yesterday, and his slide test didn't see ferning, but I don't think the leak is urine. Also, I'm not sure he waited long enough for the slide to fully dry, which I've read can cause a misreading (plus, I'm paranoid). Does anyone know if there's any normal reason to leak something that looks like water? Or should I call my doctor back? Thank you for your help.

hey, when i was 18 weeks i kept leaking too i thought my waters broke and its a very scary thought i know how u feel, i was convinced the fluid was not urine cuz i couldent feel it come out the way urine does and went to my doctor that day, turned out i has a very bad kidney infection and thats what was causing me to leak............because a pregnant womans immune system is lower then normal so that her body does not reject the fetus, it can be diffecult to detect infections as u may not have any symtoms, but if i was u i would go get my urine tested to check for that, and try not to worry if it is an infection all u need is some anti biotics and u will be ok good luck and let me know how u get on (by the way im 21 weeks and no more nasty infections lol)

Thanks, Kat - I'm not having any other symptoms, either. I'm scheduled for an appt. on Monday, so I'll ask about a possible kidney infection then. Did you have constant leaks, or just one or two a day? Thanks for your help!
