Leaking is bad: The fetal membranes are an important protection for baby.If you are leaking amniotic fluid germs from your genital tract can enter the sac and trigger an infection that can kill baby.This can happen in under 18 hours.At the very least, you should go in and make sure this is not leaking pee but real fluid.If so they will likely admit you & watch closely with premi delivery for any sign of infection
