I am 38 weeks tomorrow, and I just got out of the shower and put on a pantyliner. I was going about my business when I felt a trickle down there lol. I went to check and there is some yellow discharge on my pantyliner. It is very thin and has no smell. I felt my vagina and it was very wet, the discharge looked like water on my fingers. I always heard if your water broke it would keep coming, but how fast does it come? And if that is what happened, will contractions follow?Answer Question

"if you dont have the baby within 24hrs of your water breaking you and the baby are at a very high risk of infection you cant go weeks.."
This might be true for those having lots of vaginal exams. But not so for those who put nothing inside the vagina. There are some woen who even go months~ the leak might continue or it can reseal.
When my water was gushing I just stayed hydrated, sure, it got old after a week-- I knew contractions would have to start eventually, I had made it past my due date at least! ;-)
