  • Could be leaking or losing water too . might not hurt to have it checked out if it's keeps happening

  • Well you could be leaking.My underwear have been wet like crazy as well and I have to wear pantyliners.I told my doctor I thought mine broke but for me I just have a lot of discharge and the baby keeps kicking my bladder and I pee without knowing sometimes.Does it smell sweet?I was tld if its your water it will actually smell sweet.

  • You may be leaking your amniotic fluid. The gush you were talking about is when you membranes are completely rupture. I would suggest to go to L&D Triage and have it checked. It may be like other suggested uncontrolled pee or increased discharge but in L&D they will just make simple test and you will have the answer as well as the knowledge what to do next.
    The reason why I would like it to be checked if I were you is that if you are diliated and leaking fluid you are prone to infection.
    Good luck to you and your little baby bump :)
