Leaking Amniotic Fluid
I'm 12 weeks and fear I'm leaking amniotic fluid.  I feel gushes when I get up in the morning, turn in my sleep but not when laughing, coughing or sneezing which is typical of urine leakage.  Its clear but when dries is a yellowish tint.  I've already had some spotting at 10+weeks that my dr. believes was secondary from a "slight placenta detaching" so I'm really worried this is amniotic fluid -its been happening for over a week now or is to early for that?

Hi!
At 12 weeks there is not very much amniotic fluid there yet, so I'm guessing, and hoping that you are having some urinary incontinence.  Almost everyone does during pregnancy!
There is a test that can be done to detect amniotic fluid--the fern and nitrazine test--which can be done in the doctor's office.  Also, an ultrasound should show whether there is a normal amount of fluid in the sac.  I definitely recommend that you inform your MD and let him/her decide what tests to do!

Good luck!
Dr B
