things this could be?(TMI)

ok I have been having something leaking all day a little at a time, I can feel it come out and when i go to check it is almost clear but has a white tint. thickish and does not really have a smell. it isnt sticky either. it happens a few time a hour. I'm also having contractions but not regular ones maybe 4 -5 and hour. and i have started to dilate and efface. any ideas what it could be?

  • How far along are you? If you are not 36+wks, you may want to call you doc. having 4-5 contractions/hour may be a sign of early labor. You may need a stress test.

  • The goopy stuff could be pieces of your mucous plug coming out.

  • you might have sprung a leak. I'd get that checked out.

  • could be ur water broke. call labor and delivery or just go in, they need to check that

  • Could be heavy discharge, courtesy of the third trimester, or your water. I had a false alarm trip to the hospital because of heavy discharge. Might be worth calling your OB (or whatever your protocol is) and checking it out.
