Pregnant with incontinence. Dribbling of urine. No infection. What else?

I am 32 weeks pregnant and have developed incontinence. I have seen my primary OBGYN (today) and have ruled out infection and am waiting for fetal firbonectin results. Incontinence started 3 days ago and was very mild (a few drops if I bent over, sneezed, or coughed). Now, it is worse, seeming to dribble a little bit randomly throughout the day. Seems to be worse when I'm standing up than sitting down. Any ideas what's going on? When I saw my doctor earlier, she was quite sure the fluid was not amniotic fluid.

Thanks for writing to us.
The mild urinary incontinence during the pregnancy is commonly seen due to the pressure of the gravid uterus on the bladder. A urinary infection needs to be ruled out after a urine test. This incontinence will resolve after delivery.
