Think my water might be leaking...

I have a lot of CM at the end of pregnancy. So much that I wear pads all the time because it drives me nuts. It can be quite watery as well.

Well I noticed towards evening that every time I'd lie down I'd feel a little trickle. It's def NOT pee. I assumed it was CM as usual, but it just felt different. So I took off my pad since it would mask it, and put some toilet paper on instead. That way I could tell if it was watery or not. I took it off after 20 minutes or so and it was wet and clear. No smell. I took off the TP and just have panties now to see if I can get an even better idea. I stood up from the bed and felt another trickle. I haven't checked my panties yet, but I will.

If it keeps happening I'll call my midwife. I've never had my water leak or break before. If it is leaking it is in very small amounts.

Sounds like its amniotic fluid, and it doesn't have to be a big gush, can be a trickle. I'd let your midwife know and keep us updated. Good luck mama!

Sounds like what happened with my 5th but I felt a POP and then a slow trickle as I was walking up a flight of stairs carrying groceries. His head was acting as a cork. Let the MW know.. Good luck hun!!

I would definitely have it checked out if you think it could be...maybe you're almost there! My OB has been asking me at every appointment if I've been leaking any fluid, I didn't realize it was that common.

Re: Think my water might be leaking...

DDCC, but with my first I went pee and when I stood up from peeing something trickled down my leg. I was like ugh seriously I didn't finish peeing or what lol? Went sat at the computer and another trickle..maybe a half hour or so later my water broke and gushed everywhere.

With my last one I was leaking for a few days before I went into labor. They concluded it was a tear high up because although the tests were showing it was fluid, they couldn't tell where the leak was and after an u/s they decided the leak was up high instead of down low.

GL! Hope this is it for you!

Re: Think my water might be leaking...

Did you find out what was going on?

I had a slight leak with my first. However, i was in a traditional practice and not with midwives. Once i tested positive for amniotic fluid i was made to go to the hospital and put on the clock. 26 hours later they started pitocin as it was that or a times up C at 48 hours. my water didn't fully break until a few hours after they started the pit.
