Fluid Leaking

Does anyone know how the dr determines if you are leaking fluid? Is this via ultrasound or another way? I don't think I have anything to worry about and that maybe it is just urine but I swear I am saturating my underwear at night. Its kind of hard to do a smell test when you pee ever 1hr and 1/2 to 2 hrs also. I know- really gross huh?

I think they can test the fluid itself to determine what it is, by swabbing... Not too sure. Have you started wearing pads at night.. Might help the issue. Not too gross, just one of the joys of pregnancy. Smile

Yes, they can test the fluid Smile I have to wear mini pads pretty constantly now. Definitely one of those pregnancy things you don't talk about a lot Wink

Yes, they test it on a special sheet of paper called Nitrazine Paper- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nitrazine

FYI - if you do have the test done make sure not to BD before hand. It will give you a false positive.
