  • Depends if you are leaking you can have a watery discharge . My hospital wouldnt . They would just have you stay and they would moniter you as long as the baby was ok then the baby staied in you but you have to stay at the hospital . That is my hopspital tho .
    Go to Labor and Delievery they only have to do a swab to see if you are leaking it literally takes 30 secs.

  • If it is labor they'll try to stop it because it's soo early. I've been leaking for months now. Sometimes you're body just leaks fluids. They told me if I fill a pad within an hour to come in. Also, there is a test they can do to find out if it's your water. They just put a little strip down there and check the color. I can go pee, get out of the shower, dry off completely, and within minutes my underwear are wet. Just check and if your that worried, it takes seconds for them to use that test strip. Don't ever be afraid to ask for additional tests. Most docs only do the minimum required.

  • Hopefully not, you could reseal and go on to your due date or longer! Keep everything out of the vagina and stay hydrated.
    I was gushing for 8 days without laboring at all, I know I don't hold the record...

  • Leaks can self-seal. Drink a lot of water to keep yourself well hydrated. Amniotic fluid is continuously replaced.
