Chances are good that every dad-to-be will have an encounter with amniotic fluid. A lucky few will have partners who simply have a slow, steady drip-drip-drip, but it's also highly likely that you'll find yourself waking up in a puddle. There's no need to freak out -- it's just the clean liquid that's been cushioning your baby for approximately 10 billion years months. Of course, there's always a possibility that the liquid isn't clear. In that case, you just got covered in poop water and should probably go take a shower. Better pack an extra set of dad clothes in that hospital bag!
