Is it possible for fluids to leak and then stop and everything goes back to normal?

Hi I am 32 weeks pregnant and had some bleeding and fluid loss which I was in hospital for, however no one was sure if my waters had broken, is it possible for them to leak and then stop and everything goes back to normal. On a scan there was plenty of fluid around the baby. Thanks for your time.

Answer: Hi, It is possible to get a leak in the bag and then for it to repair itself. Usually it is from somewhere behind the baby and not at the front of the baby (near the head). The fluid around the baby is constantly being produced and replaced. Best wishes, Alex
