Help?! Please...

I tried EPO last night for the first time. Well my midwives suggest 6 pills vaginally starting at 39 weeks. Well I just used a panty liner because i thought that would be enough to catch anything that ran out from them. But I woke up and my pantys and the liner were really... Wet like my whole area down there. Is 6 pills enough to have that much come out or should I call my dr? I'm having a few bh occasionally but nothing out of the ordinary...

Did you get them WAY up there? EPO is a little oily, nothing like amniotic fluid. Amniotic fluid has no smell or taste (though some women say it smells earthy, I thought it was totally odorless).

My water broke a day before I went into labor. It kinda leaked all the time, and when I sat down to pee it sounded like I was peeing before I started peeing. Does that make sense? If you continue to leak fluid, you can get it tested at the hospital. Check the hospital policy first. Some will keep you and induce, mine let me leave and come back in 12 hours.

I agree that you should get it checked out - it could be nothing, or it could be your water. If it were me, I'd rather know one way or the other.

Yes, is it wet or oily? See if you can drop into the OB's office so they can use the little paper to test it! Maybe it's time!

it wasn't fluid and then to top it all off I haven't progressed at all in 2 weeks. Still barely dilated to a 2 and very thick. I was a little excited for a minute there...
