What is it? adult content

This is my third pregnancy and I've never had anything like this happen before. I'm 40 weeks plus or minus a couple of days and I had a "waterfall" of a mucus like substance come out of my vagina. It just kind of came gushing out. I thought maybe my water had broke (which didn't happen with either of my previous pregnancies) but my MIL said that your water breaking was basically peeing yourself and it felt like warm water and was not mucus.

As far as contractions, I had some heavy Braxton-Hicks last night but nothing since.

Any idea what this was and should I be concerned?

  • I agree, I would go to the hospital, you are probably in labor! Good luck!

  • It sounds like your water broke. Since you are 40 plus weeks, the "muscousy" stuff could be the whitish stuff that covers the baby at birth to help him/her pass through the birth canal. GL!

  • From what I've read I would assume your water broke.. call your doctor!
    Note* I can't be sure because I have never experienced my water breaking outside of a hospital bed.
    Good Luck!!

  • Hospital, with my first pregnancy I did feel like I peed myself a little but my secind it felt a little like how you described i definitely think you should go to the hospital, better safe then sorry. After your water breaks you have a great chance for infection! Good luck
