Call doctor or not? kinda tmi

ok, so for 2 days now i have had to go to the bathroom to wipe "down there" because i have been really wet. anyways last night i was having some cramping and i called my midwife "oncall" to ask if i needed to go to the ER and she didnt seem too worried and told me to just rest and drink fluids.. well i woke up this morning and my bed was wet under me in a rather large spot.. i called again and she said its possible i peed on myself.. are you f'in serious!!! well i kno i didnt pee on myself ( i have a couple times before but this is different) it didnt smell like pee at all! anyways, no contractions or anything just cramps, no bleeding or anything like that.. what should i do? i dont wanna go to the hospital if its nothing. im trying not to be worried about it but since this is my first i am not sure if my water broke or not. please give me some advice!

the sheets are dark blue so its hard to see.. sorry

  • sounds to me like you could be leeking amniotic fluids. I personally would call the dr. or get a ck up. If this is what is happening it could cause problems with your baby/birth/or effects on baby after.

  • You'd probably be cramping if your water broke, however you might have a tear in your placenta, I'd go to the ER just to be on the safe side. I would rather go in and find out it's nothing, than wait and it effect my baby.

  • typically if your water broke it will continue to leak as you walk. You may have a leak in your sac which would cause a small but continues drainage. I would call you L&D and ask them to check you. I would not put this off your baby could have problems if the water level is too low.

    Good Luck!!
