The last 3 days i have been leaking fluid. I'm not sure if it is urine or amniotic fluid. I am 21 weeks pregnant. I have been going through 3-4 pairs of underwear and pants a day. Should i call the dr or just wait until my next appointment in June?

I hope everything is ok...there are so many things during pregnancy that can be major complications or just a minor hiccup. I always say when in doubt see the doctor. They can at least reassure you that everything is ok incase its a false alarm.

Yes, I read about it as early as 19 weeks...the good news is there are ways of holding off delivery and giving you antibiotics to lower het risk of infection for you and your little one. worst case scenario is you are having bladder control issues. It sounds like you are experiencing a trickle which could still be your water leaking. Have it checked out. My first time around i went into preterm labor at 31 weeks. It caused me to look into all sorts of potential issues. Im not trying to scare you, but if i hadn't gone in to the doctor with what i though was just back pain i might have had a preemie with all kinds of potential issues.

call the doctor...or go straight to ER. it is possible that your water has broken. If this is the case you are at a high risk for infection and the baby could be in jeopardy.
