Leaking amniotic fluid?
Went to the hospital, had the swabby test. It was negative for amniotic fluid but I guess I'm still a little confused because we all know what urine smells like.. and this was just clear fluid. Or maybe I am just feeling dumb for dragging everyone to the hospital at 10pm. At least I did learn a little something, ob said to go into one of the hospitals in town for anything prior to 36 weeks because even if they'd done the c section last night they would have transferred baby to another hospital. glad that didn't happen. sorry for the false alarm lol
I had this test yesterday because the day before that I had something similar happen, and although I have issues with urgency and frequency, I had never wet myself like that, so I was unsure of what had just happened. Neg for amniotic fluid too.
I was about to ask how they test to see if it's amniotic fluid. Thanks for answering my question in advance. That certainly does not sound like a picnic!
haha, I did this when pregnant with DS. :) I also brought home some sterile gloves to check my cervix, lol. Didn't do any good, though... I wound up induced for oligo and then had a c/s anyway. :(
I was just thinking about how potentially different my births will be! My first was almost as medical as it could possibly be, and this one will hopefully be as natural as possible (in my bedroom, caught by myself! makes me giggle with joy, haha.)
