Leaking fluid after amnio

Hello. I am presently 18+ weeks pregnant.  I had an amnio done at 16 weeks and immediately following the procedure I began gushing fluid. I was admitted to hospital for 4 days. Throughout the hospital stay my amnio fluid went slightly up and then completely gone on day 4.  The dr. gave me the oiption to terminate, stay in hospital or come home.  I came home on bedrest and am drinking TONS of water and cranberry juice.  I went in to see dr. last Tuesday and I had accumulated a couple of pockets of fluid. I had another appointment this Tuesday and my amniotic fluid had increased to normal levels. Yesterday I felt a gush and indeed to my dismay, it was amniotic fluid.  I went in to see my dr. and after a sono determined my fluid was not only still there, it was a bit more.  I am very worried, could someone possibly leak fluid throughout pregnancy and still have enough for baby to develop normally? How long does a rupture due to amnio take to seal? Could it be old fluid because all the while I was in the hospital I didnt leak yet I lost all fluid?  Please know that I did ask my some of these questions to my dr. but all he said was "your fluid looks great and keep on the bedrest see you in two weeks".  Please help!!!

i had the same experience! first a call showing increased risk for spinal bifida so i did amnio and 5 hours later i gushed fluid! i was put in hospital for 5 days and put head down in bed to take pressure off cervix! i was discharged and honestly had slow leak for weeks! it was the scariest time in my life! fluid replaced overtime and i am currenty 32 weeks with healthy baby no problems other than a previa that bleeds but baby is doing great! dont be discouraged i am hope for anyone cause i have been there! hell i even got infection post amnio and all is better now! now perfect but good

Thank you so much for your encouraging words.  This is for me like it was for you the scariest time of my life.  I am living day by day and literally hour by hour.  I do not leak constantly which may be a good sign but I still leak none the less.  I too am praying harder than ever and am trying to keep off my feet as much as possible.  I will pray that all for you comes out great!  Good luck and God bless.
