There areonky a handful of ways that could cause it, including a punctured bag... When I was 37 weeks, I hadn't grown any. So they scheduled a growth ultrasound. They assumed my water intake wasn't high enough, so they gave me 4 days to get it up. I drank almost a gallon each day, and at my second growth ultrasound my amniotic fluid was even Lower than before!

. I had no leak and after my son was born they checked my placenta and there wasn't anything wrong with it.


I woke up because wanted to go to the bathroom really bad with a full bladder. 2 hours later again..and again, so for me it was like an urgency to go to the bathroom every 2 hours. I didn't expect it to happened because i was due 3 weeks later. However, I called my OB doctor in the morning and she suggested to come and see her right away. She found out that I was leaking amniotic fluid and sent me to the hospital.


It is a simple test to find out if you are leaking amniotic fluid so I would give the doc a call and let them know so they can see you.
