In our childbirth cla__ses they told us that water breakage will be clear water.. like say tap water and it will have no smell. If in doubt, change paties and if there is leak again, sniff and make sure. Hope this helps..:-)

If your water leaks, it will be impossible to stop the leaking. Like with urine, you can stop it mid-flow, with amniotic fluid it will come out no matter what you do. If it comes gushing out, you will def. know it! There is about 4 cups of amnio. fluid and it is very noticable if it all comes out at one time. Just feels like you are peeing, but you can't control it. Make sure to check if the fluid is clear, if it is brown or green or very yellow call you care provider right away. Well, call them anyway if your water is leaking or breaks!
