Yesterday I went to my doctor appointment as is was my due date (40 weeks). I never thought to ask him about the fluid I have been leaking because I thought it was just increased discharge and I did not know I was leaking so much until last night. For the past 3-4 days I have been wearing a pad and only changing it twice a day (morning and night). Last night I did not use a pad and I soaked my underwear about 4 times. The liquid is clear and does not appear to have a smell to it. When I am awake and I wet myself, I feel a gush coming from my vagina. (it does not appear to continually leak, only gushes every couple hours). I live an hour and half away, so I don't want to go to the Hospital on a Saturday over nothing. My next appointment is on Friday May 11th. The doctor told me if I didn't have the baby by then they would induce me on Monday May 14th. If I waited til my next appointment, and it was amniotic fluid, could I harm my baby?
