  • Yes tell him! You could be leaking amniotic fluid. Go right now if you been leaking that long. The baby may be ready to come now for all you know. You need to be check out ASAP.

  • UM yeah! Your baby may have already decided to come but your labor cannot progress with no pressure if say the cord is wrapped around your baby. You should go to the ER. 37 weeks is considered full term.

  • i say it's up to you. if you just leaked a small amount of fluid then you could have a pin hole in your bag. but it can heal itself. plus if they start VE then they are going to put you at risk of infections. stomach pains are normal through out pregnancy.

    if you feel you should tell the doctor or feel something is wrong then you def. should tell. but be prepared for VE and sent to the hospital possible induction and all the works because they will put you on a timer.

    also babies move in and out of their cords all the time. and get wrap up in it. and nothing you have went through would put you at risk of that.
