Answer: If you notice a warm clear fluid suddenly flowing out of your vagina, it could be your water breaking. Usually, the amniotic fluid sac in which your baby is floating ruptures about 24 to 48 hours before labor starts. Sometimes, this fluid could be mistaken for urinary leakage or an increase in vaginal discharge, both common during pregnancy.
If you’re not sure whether this is a urine leak, discharge, or a break in the amniotic fluid sac, you can perform this simple test at home:
Go to the bathroom, empty your bladder and then put on clean undergarments and a large panty liner. Once done, lay down for about half an hour and then stand up.
If your water is breaking, you will likely wet your panty liner again when you stand up. If the panty liner remains dry, then what you’ve experienced could have been a urine leak or just extra vaginal discharge.
In all cases, consult with your doctor to clear up your doubts.

Question: Yesterday night and today morning i saw water is coming out. Is it amniotic fluid or what does it mean? What should I do now?
Answer: hi dear !
Sometimes the amniotic sac breaks or leaks prior to labor, and because your uterus is resting directly on top of your bladder, it can cause you to leak urine. If your membranes have ruptured and you are leaking amniotic fluid, it will be an odorless fluid. The discharge can be a sudden gush or a constant trickle.
If your waters break as a slow trickle or a leak it could be because the sac has a small opening where the amniotic fluid is draining. The water generally dribbles away intermittently (over hours or days) with movement from either you, your baby or with a contraction. you should contact your gynac dear.
take care dear !
