  • Has she been checked for a bladder infection? All of that could be signs of an infection.

  • ive had 4 little buggers! Wet panties are often because of pressure from the baby is laying on her bladder or kicking it. sometimes when she goes she may not completely empty out so the last little bit will dribble later. Unless she in pain or there is blood, i wouldnt be to worried about the wet panties, wear a pad like the mid-wife explained. the white curds are often a mild type of a yeast infection, could be brought on by the wet panties. have her go to the doctor, if your that concerned. I'd be concerned but not alarmed. there is a difference. but do watch the breech situation. Congrads....by the way. :-)

  • I had this happen to me too! But It started earlier and was happening to me after orgasms mostly. It was literaly a flood and I would soak through two towels and the sheets. I thought my water was breaking, went to the hospital but no labour. When it happened over and over I had to find out what the hell was going on. My doctor, did some searching around and we concluded that I was retaining so much extra fluid it was being forced out. the baby and the fluid level in my amniotic sac were fine. when my water did finaly break it was six hours after labour had begun. The good side to this is that due to all the fluid my doctor said that my uterus was extra coushioned to help ease the transition from early to late labour and he was right. The first six hours were only slightly excruciating! I am happy to hear that I am not the only one out there that this happened to. And It didn't happen with baby number 2!

  • Since she went to a midwife, I'm assuming they checked to make sure it wasn't amniotic fluid. If it is not that, I'm sure she's just having extra discharge which is normal or urine, which is normal form the pressure of the baby! Good luck!
