  • If it isn't a lot and doesn't continue, I wouldn't be worried about it. You can get small tears and leak fluid, but your body will repair the tear. Unless it continues to increase or gush, just relax!

  • I would lie down and see if it continues. They say the baby can kind of act like a "cork" when you are standing.

    Otherwise, you might just have peed a little.

  • If it were me and I knew that I hadn't peed myself, I would call the doctor just to be safe. I of course would try to make sure that it was coming out vaginally and if it was, I wouldn't wait it out I would just go in. 33 weeks is pretty early still and the doctor will want to know what is going on. How much fluid are we talking about?

  • Hmm...I would call the doctor and tell him or her what happened. They then can determine if it is in fact your water. This happened to my friend at 26 weeks...they put her on bedrest until she was farther along. All she had was that small trickle, but that small trickle can end up with your water breaking.

  • it could be water, it could be your mucus plug, etc. just call your doctor to be sure, it might be nothing, but better save than sorry.
