  • That sounds like it could be the start of things. :) You may want to get ready in case contractions start. Good luck!

  • It does sound like it is starting. Make sure you have everything ready, MAKE SURE YOU EAT, and rest. You will not be able to eat or rest once things get going and she/he arrives.

  • Well to be honest, i think its def starting, when i was pregnant and the night i thought i was peeing too, but it wasnt my water broke, and i wasnt even in any pain, not at all i called the labor and delivery and asked about it they told me to come in and get checked out, and i did and i was already 5 cenameters so i was going into laybor, so if i was you i call just to make sure and ask.. cause every one is differant and every pregnancy is differant..

  • when my water broke with my second daughter I didn't get contractions. Till about an hour later. If the discharge is brown or pink or red you could have lost your mucus plug and you could be leaking slowly. I would call your hospital. and your doctor. Hope everything goes well.
