    I would put a maternity pad on so you can monitor the loss apparently they smell sweet!! Give hospital a call aswell they will need to know if it is your waters!! Exciting!!!!

    oooh exciting! definitley sounds like the start of something! I heard that you can check if its waters by standing on a piece of newspaper or something and seeing if they continue to drip onto to it! fingers crossed it is! x

    Yup...maternity pad and, as rank as it sounds, you might have to give it a sniff!! LOL! If it's your waters, it'll smell sweet apparently. MW at antenatal class said that if it's a "hind quarters leak" that it'll keep coming in trickles a bit at a time, so there'll be a little hole somewhere near the top of the amniotic sack that will keep letting small amounts of fluid out that will run down the outside of the sack and pool behind your cervix, then each time baby moves their head it lets a trickle out! She suggested that if you think this is what's happening, you can call your unit, but if you're not sure then monitor it over an hour or so cos if it is your waters it'll keep happening, in which case you need to call cos they'll want you straight in to check you out!!
    Good luck & FX for you!!
