  • It doesnt hurt to call L&D and see what they have to say but from personal experience, I get REALLY watery discharge at the end of pregnancy. I think its because I like baths and the bath water stays up there I guess!! Nobody will get bad at you or frustrated with you if you call or go in. I would hold off a bit longer and see what happens. Another way to better tell is to hold some TP at your who-ha and push on your fundus (the top of your uterus) if you are leaking, it might cause more to come out quicker.

    Dont get scared... even though you are early, if your baby is coming... he/she should be fine:)

  • You really cant tell. Is it a constant trickle or just some water discharge?

  • Go find out it is dangerous if you have a broken water for too long, I had a high leak I was unaware of and it caused great stress on my dd and made a vaginal delivery almost impossible therefore I had a terrible c-sec.
