  • i didn call, i dnt want to be calling if its not important. i dnt think it was my water breaking, it was just alot of discharge cos it was white, i was wearing pink panties so i didn see if there was any other colour through it.

  • If your water had broke you would still be leaking. But it sounds like its just your mucus plug. If its not a bloody show you should be fine.

  • thanks, thats what i was hoping all it is. i just don't want to be ringing the hospital for things, if its not serious.

  • i wouldn't worry about it unless it's a brown color, or if you see blood.

  • Even blood is normail if it's your mucus plug, actually. It may have been just that. When your water breaks, it's more like peeing uncontrollably. That's what I thought mine was when it broke!
