  • I would call your doctor and see what they say they are on call for this kind of reason, and if you are still concerned go into labor and delivery and have them do a swab and test it. It can be dangerous if you wait too long and it is broken.

  • I would personally to to L&D and have them do that swab to see if it was fluid. Takes about 2 mins that is it.

  • they say that you should put on a pad, and if you fill up the pad within an hour, then it's probably time to go have a baby....
    but if you're worried, just go in.......

  • Sounds more like discharge, but I agree about the pad thing. I was filling a pad every 20 minutes or so when my water broke. I had a false alarm with discharge thinking my water had broken, so I can understand where you're coming from. If you're till not certain, go in, and they can test it.
