  • maybe your water is slowly leaking instaed of breaking fully ! WITH MY 3RD BABY I WAS LEAKING FLUID LIKE I PEED MY SELF EVERY 5 MINUTES .

  • It sounds like your water broke!! It does not always break with a big gush, instead sometimes it just leaks a little bit every few minutes for a long time. I believe it has something to do with the baby's head blocking the water, then when it moves again more water comes out.

  • sounds like your water broke and you'll need to call your doctor. They will most likely have you stay at home and just walk around some until your contractions start and are closer together.

  • Some of us have leaks before labor starts, it can take days/weeks/months . . .

    But if you are starting labor then it may be Time sooner than later.

    * Be sure to decline getting your cervix checked!!!! *

    Best wishes!

  • Time to call the Dr to see what they want you to do but I think a trip to the L&D is fast approaching.  Good luck

  • Is there color or odor?
    Do you know baby's position?
    Do you have a care provider?
