Is it possible for your water to break, get everything soaked, then not come out at all anymore?
Okay a little background:
I'm 36 wks 5 days. I've been having some contractions, far apart and not very strong. The past two days, when I wipe, I have a small spot of blood or a small smear of blood, only on the tissue paper, never on my panties (I heard this can be caused from dialation). Well this afternoon, my daughter knocked over a vase of flowers. The flower water got all over the floor, but I didn't feel anything on the couch or the pillow. Well about an hour later, I feel the couch just to make sure, before sitting down. I didn't feel anything unusual, or like I just sat in something wet, at all. I felt a small discharge coming out. But then after about an hour and a half, I stood up to get a drink, and my pants are soaked. Completely. Like I peed my pants, literally that much. I felt the couch, dry. the pillow however, soaking wet. I had to take it off the couch. I went to the bathroom, no spotting, nothing coming out of me until I teetee. I look at my panty liner, completely soaked. The thongs I was wearing, not wet. I took my pants off, looked at them, and yes it's everywhere, still is. I smelled it and it didn't smell like the water from the vase, nor did it smell like urine. I smelled the pillow, same smell as my pants. I smelled the flower water, stinky, but not really the same smell either. It's been about an hour and a half since all this happened. I feel like there's a little dishcharge stuff coming out, but I'm not wet at all. Like at all. I'm still having some contractions, but nothing like serious labor or anything like that.
Now, I've heard and read that once your water breaks, there will be a continuous leak until the baby comes, because the amniotic fluid keeps producing or whatever. I don't want to go into L&D and them tell me it's flower water and then get sent home. I know as of Sunday, I'm 1 cm dialated and 25% effaced, as I was in the hospital for 5 hours with them pumping me with fluids and giving me pain meds (that I didn't want but felt pressured to take) to stop labor. So does this sound like it could have been my water? Or flower water? Any thoughts please! My husband doesn't get home until midnight tonight from work, and he's got the car. I'm not calling 911 for a ride to the hospital for false labor or flower water, so please no bashing for my decisions. I'm just really curious as to what you guys think it could be. Thanks ladies!
