Discharge; sign of labor?

I'm 39 weeks pregnant today and I noticed that I have been having a lot of clear discharge to the point of soaking my panties. I have also been having a hard time goin pee. Normally I pee at least every half hour and I want almost 7 hours and felt like I had to pre but couldn't. When I finally did go pee it's not painful or an odd color so I don't believe it's a bladed infection. What's going on with this?

Water broke, sounds like.
Might want to call your ob and let them know.

Really? I have a 3 year old and when my water broke with him it was a gush. Not a leak.

If it was slimy it was probably the mucus plug....a good sign that things are changing, but does not mean that labor will happen today.  If it was just clear liquid it could be amniotic fluid, and you may want to check with your care provider.

I would share this info with your OB just to be sure.

Good Luck! Soon Mama!!!
