Should I call the hospital?

I've been feeling pretty bad the past couple days and my bowel movements have been green, then today i noticed my discharge is watery and clear instead of whitish or thick..my obs office is closed on weekends and i don't want to be a bother calling the hospital for not real reason. What do you think? Is it normal or should I call...its not a trickle so i don't want to jump to conclusions and think its my water breaking..im 38 weeks

  • It sounds normal to me. If you just absolutely feel like sh*t, I would call your OB office and set up an appt, but it sounds normal.

  • when I was leaking amniotic fluid it was very runny, as in like WATER, and it was tinged pink when I wiped it with white toilette tissue. I don't think you can confuse "discharge" and water....

    I think you're ok. Does your OB have an answering service or paging system on weekends? It's not like babies are only delivered on weekdays lol. If you're seriously worried, call. But I think you're fine.
