I am 35 weeks along. I am wondering about the smell of amniotic fluid. Is it possible for leaking amniotic fluid to have an ammonia like odor? I know it is supposed to smell sweet. But I can't say I have ever smelled it before. My two previous deliveries the doc broke my water. I am just wondering if I may be leaking. I am quite sure that I have not had any leaking urine.

You need to call your doctor or go to the hospital to get checked. Per Terms of Service, we may not give medical advice, nor ask questions of a medical advice nature on allnurses.com.

Good luck and I hope all is ok.
