Appointment today-Should I ask the doc?

Should I ask the doctor if it is possible to have a slow leak of amniotic fluid even with full placenta previa, because it honestly seems like I may be leaking but you would think the placenta would be preventing it from getting threw. I am pretty certain it is not urine, and (TMI) it does smell a bit like when my water broke with DD. Any idea if this is even possible or if I should just tell them that I may have a UTI? All suggestions welcome.

*lurker*

if you even think there is any possible way it might be amniotic fluid, I'd ask them about the possibility. They can usually test to see and you'll have a clear head about it all.

You can definitely still have a leak even if you have placenta previa. The test to see if it is fluid vs. urine is super simple and takes no time!

Glad it wasn't anything bad. Did they say what it could be?
