Sweet Smelling Fluid At 37 Weeks Help

Megan P - March 13

I've been smelling sweet fluid in my panties since my appointment this afternoon when my doc checked me. I am 2 cm dilated. It can't be my waters breaking because it's not that much, just seems like a teaspoon or so here and there but I wonder if it's amniotic fluid leaking and if that's a problem? Anyone know? Or is it just a normal occurance as body prepares for birth?

It may be. Sometimes you just get a little tear in the bag and the waters leak out. If you are at all concerned ring the labour ward and speak with a midwife.

you should call your dr. because if your waters are leaking and you leave it alone it can cause an infection for you and baby. also, don't have s_x if your not sure.

I'm sure you've already resolved the situation but for anyone else in a similar situation reading this... I would call the doctor. My water broke and it was like little drips at a time. Granted after an hour there was a very obvious gush of fluids for me but you don't want to let it go because you can get an infection. Better to be on the safe side.
