Do you know what amniotic fluid is?
It really is. It's the fetus' urine.
Not really. The fluid comes from the mother's plasma. It cushions the fetus and allows for fetal movement that encourages fetal bone and muscle development. The fetus ingests the fluid and it helps the development of the GI tract.
Initially, but when the fetus develops enough, they produce it.
I saw your comment below, but I thought you were going to say that your water had broke. Good luck and I'm praying for a safe and easy delivery. My third was by far the easiest!
Nope. Did get tested earlier this week to see if there was a leak though!
Really hope this one is easiest. That'd be lovely.
Baby juice.... Lol... Yes I know that's not the correct term, but didn't want to ruin the answer for anybody else....
Inspired by the fact that my rather intelligent friends didn't know what it was. I was rather surprised, though they have never personally feel with pregnancy.
Still, his mother is a nurse and worked maternity while he was growing up.
If you don't know, it's the fluid that the fetus (& earlier stages) lives in until birth. It'd incredibly important to survival and development, and what fills the bag of waters. If someone's water breaks, amniotic fluid is what comes out.
