Is my water going to break?

I'm almost 37+3 weeks pregnant with baby number 3. I'm 3cm dilated and lost my whole plug on Wednesday. Contractions r on and off but nothing serious. Today I had to pee and while I was peeing I felt this small pop feeling in my cervix area. If any fluid did come out it wasn't much. This was a few hours ago and I have not leaked anything since.. I'm wondering if anyone else experienced this. Idk if maybe my baby is blocking my fluid from leaking or if the pop was something else. My water had to be broken by my doctor with my other two pregnancies.

 with my 2nd the doc broke my water and not a lot came out. She had me put on a pad and walk around. and ooo boy did it come out doing that lol... I really dont know if you think your water broke i would call the doc they have a test they can do to check.

If you really want to check, lay down on your back with your hips raised for a few minutes and then get up.  If baby's head is blocking any from leaking, when you get horizontal, the baby should kinda drift back away from the cervix, at least enough for some to pool - when you stand up, it should gush if there is any. 

Good luck!

This is my third. A couple of weeks ago I was closed. So my body is progressing, but my OB said it doesnt really mean it will happen tomorrow. Others have also said they walked around for weeks 3cm dilated.

I walked arond 3 with my
First for a few weeks. But I have had much
More signs that labor is near with
This one. I'm hoping I don't have her this weekend. It's very snowy where I'm located right now and I live an hour and a half away for
The hospital!

With my daughter, I was 6 cm and didn't know. I wasn't in labor, and I have no idea how long I was that far dilated...it was the first time the dr checked me.

Good luck!

They didn't "make me"...

I was having pre-e complications and we were discussing induction that day or going on strict bed rest over the weekend. The doctor decided to check me ...and once we realized I was 6 cm, we decided to induce that day.
