  • go get checked by a doctor.

    we would have absolutely no way of knowing what the fluid was. The doctor can do a simple litmus paper test to see if it was amniotic fluid or urine or discharge.

  • I think I'd be calling the doc if I were you. It could have just been urine or a lot of discharge, but it also could have been your water breaking or leaking. Better to be safe then sorry. Give the doc a call, and if you can't get ahold of him/her, I would just head to the ER.

  • Wait, so you were in preterm labor last night? Yes, I would most definitely be getting myself to the hospital to get checked. Good luck.

  • they also gave me a test that told them i did not have the hormaons that girls have when they go in to labor and my cirvix was closed and the test thing was to see if i could go in to labor with in the next two weeks

  • I know exactly what test you're talking about. I had that when I was maybe 21 weeks with my son. Anyway, as I recall, that test was not fool proof. If I recall correctly, the presence of the hormone is a bad thing (labor is coming) but the absence of the hormone actually doesn't mean anything one way or the other. So it can tell you if there's trouble brewing, but it can't tell you if everything is a-okay. So, that said, you need to call your doctor, hon.

  • They can test the birth canal for signs of amniotic fluid... go to the L&D. It's better to be safe the sorry. If that is your fluid, you need to be monitored and make sure the baby is okay. I had a scare like that around 29 weeks. Please go to the hospital.
