OK, so every once in awhile today, I get a very little gush of fluid with some pink plug. I didn't think it was amniotic fluid, just a watery discharge. Has anyone else had little gushes of watery discharge? Then I'm dry for a couple of hours, then a little gush (underwear get soaked) with little bits of pink plug, then nothing again. If my water were leaking, wouldn't i be consistently wet? (water broke with dd, but it was a gush and then I was constantly wet for rest of the night) TIA!

When this happens, are you moving from sitting to standing, or vice versa?

Just call your midwife or OB....testing is very simple. I know everyone doesn't work in a lab, but if you have some pH paper, you can test yourself--basic=aminiotic fluid

I was told it can break at the top letting small amounts leak out at a time....

It is crucial, however, to know one way or another whether you're just leaking normal fluids or amniotic fluids.....

To be honest it doesn't sound that different from when my water broke w/ DS #1...

I have been having the same thing; my midwife said it is possible to be a high-slow leak sort of thing, or sometimes there is a small amount of 'hind waters'? that can bust but leave the larger bag intact. i wouldn't stress out about it, just get it tested and talk to your midwife. fwiw, i did test mine, and it came out negative. but my midwife wasn't concerned about it happening to me.
