  • could be nothing but i would call your dr and let him know he will tell you if you should go in or not. usually contractions will start with in 12 hours of your water breaking but since your not atleast 37 weeks they probably will want to check you just in case.

  • It could be urine leakage. The best thing I can advise (as someone whose water broke at home) is put a pad on and go and lie down for about 5 to 10 minutes. Then get up. If you feel fluid leaking as you sit up or get up off the bed or couch then it's probably your amniotic fluid and you should 1) call the OB on call and tell them what's going on. 2) tell them when it first broke (they've got 24 hours to get the baby out before drastic measures are taken). 3) if you KNOW what color it was/is, tell them that, too. 4) GO TO THE HOSPITAL ASAP.

  • um yah, sure sounds like it. Better safe than sorry. The longer you wait the more of a chance for the baby to get an infection.
