i went to the bathroom and i had leaked something brown. just like straight brown. but it wasn't really mucousy, it was liquidy. i leaked a lot my whole pregnancy, like discharge or whatever normally comes out and the consistency of this was the same as the discharge always is. i'm sure i'm just being over paranoid, but i'm nervous that my water really broke and it's brown because the baby might've pooped. it's not like water with brown in it, it's definitely a brown discharge and it doesn't come out when i pee. only when i wipe, but i'm still nervous. should i call my doctor?

also, i'm about 39 weeks and i'm not constantly leaking. only a little. i leaked twice since about 10:30 and it's more when i wipe that i see it.

I would call to be safe! Mucous plug is usually more snot-like and not watery.

I would call and maybe go be checked. They can do a simple ph test to see if its your waters or not.

Meconium is usually more greenish- my son's skin was stained a little bit for the first day or so because I was so far overdue with him. Did you call your doctor?
