Common Complaints of Pregnancy – Leaking Urine

Third Trimester

With the increasingly large uterus and the baby’s head pressing on your bladder, as well as the large amount of water you are consuming, it is very common for pregnant women in the third trimester to begin leaking urine.

Common Complaints of Pregnancy Leaking Urine

This happens more often when you are on your way to the toilet or getting off of it, when you laugh, cough or sneeze.

What can be confusing is determining whether the “leaking” is urine, did your water break, or is this more of the same white watery discharge you have become used to.

If you ever think your water broke and aren’t sure if it is urine, first notify your doctor’s office and then place a panty liner or pad on to see if the leaking continues.

When in doubt, call labor and delivery or your doctor’s office. It is important to have someone make sure you are not leaking amniotic fluid instead.
