This is a bit TMI, but I'm not sure what just happened. I'm not sure if my water broke a little bit, or if I lost a bit of bladder control. Can anyone tell me how to tell the difference? I'd say it's definitely less than a cup of fluid,so definitely not full water breaking if that's what it was. It seems quite clear. Any comments appreciated.

Crashing your DDC. You can try smelling it. Urine smells like, well urine. Amniotic fluid tends to smell sweet. And yeah, you could always call the midwife!

I was also going to suggest smelling it. When my water broke with my first DS I was soaked from crotch to ankles, but I still smelled it to make sure . It didn't really smell like anything, maybe a little sweet. I hope something's happening for you!
