I''m nearly due, my scan shows reduced amniotic fluid index (AFI) and it feels like I''m leaking. How can I tell?

Although your membranes can rupture in one big gush, leaving little room for doubt, occasionally it is possible to leak small amounts over a period of days or weeks. It may be difficult to tell if this is stress incontinence (urine) or your waters. One clue is if you leak after sneezing, jumping, moving or laughing, it''s more likely to be urine; if you are constantly wet, it may be your waters. The only way to know is if your doctor or midwife examines you internally using a speculum; amniotic fluid (waters) can sometimes be seen leaking out. A scan to measure amniotic fluid cannot tell for sure, but may help if there is uncertainty.
