  • I'd call just to give them a heads up that you could be having a problem, they can schedule you for more time that way knowing in advance - maybe include an ultrasound if necessary. Good Luck!

  • Even if it is your water, your water breaking isn't an emergency. Don't put anything into your vagina trying to figure out what's going on... that increases your risk of infection. If it does continue, I would stay at home until you have to focus through your contractions. THEN I would go in. If you go to your appt in labor that be very cool though, lol.

  • Don't ever feel scared to call your doctor when you have a concern. If you feel that it is necessary then make a phone call and see what the nurse says. You may find out that you need to come in earlier. Good Luck and keep us posted.

  • Sounds like your water may have broken. How far along are you?

    Go ahead and call, but unless you are before 36 weeks, they probably won't feel it necessary to move up your appt.

  • I would call your doctor. That is their job!

  • you can call and they might have you come in earlier or just wait. whatever you or more comfortable w/. i would just wait. if it is labor, then laboring at home will lessen your chance of getting lots of interventions.
