I am 39wks & 3days Along....

And I feel like Im getting wet down there, but its not showing on my underwear! Its the strangest feeling ever, Like i have a leak, but i just dont see anything. My lil boy was alil slow today, like not moving as much untill tonight when i drank some Mountian Dew (which was suggested to do if he didnt move). My stomach is gettin really hard...and then softens for a lil while then gets tight again! Could I be getting close to labor??

  • sounds like it. Keep track of them and if they are coming around the same time and getting alittle closer in time, got to the hospital

  • maybe your water is about to break.. I felt like that though for 2 weeks and never went into labor had to be induced... and being induced barely helped so I had to have a c-section. i heard it is normal to feel extra wet during pregnancy without actually getting any on your underwear... just the hormones in your body at the time.

  • It sounds like you have discharge and braxton hicks, normal for being farther along. Drink a LOT of water to counter all that sugar & caffeine, see if it changes anything.
    Good luck!

  • It could be just discharge. But I would suggest that you keep track of the contractions because it does sound like you in early or active labor. If they start to get around 5-10 mins apart then call ahead to the L&D and let them know you are coming, they could send you home or keep you. Either way GL!
