This is not about the octuplet mom but someone answer me please

I'm aware that to get response the topic has to be the octuplet mom or something else irrelevant/unimportant but hopefully someone can help me out. On Tuesday night I lost my mucus plug then went through about 4 panty liners filled with a Pepto-Bismol looking substance in an hour. My doctor was less than interested in hearing about it the next day at my appointment so I still have no answers. Just now I went to the bathroom and had a really strange experience. While I was peeing some random fluid from God know's where I guess squirted out (for lack of a better term) Kind gross, but it didn't appear to have any color, at least not what was on the toilet seat or floor (yes FLOOR) but my pee had been pretty yellow...even though I drink about a million glasses of water a day. Also when I wiped there was MORE of the Pepto-Bismol-esque discharge...should I be worried? What is going on? As I said my doctor was less than helpful so I'm hoping someone else has experienced this. Sorry for the overshare!

How far along are you? It could be more of the mucus plug coming out and it could be your water breaking little by little. If your real worried call the L&D doctors and ask them

Yea it sounds like it could be your water breaking... I would deff call the L&D doctors and ask them.. Are you contracting at all?

I think, maybe, your water just broke. I would head into labor and delivery right now. They will test the fluid. Take the pad. Just to be safe

I love your way of catching our attention and completly understand the feeling!!!!

I would say labor is starting and you should probably head to L&D soon!!! Your water is probably what the fluid was and it isn't safe to walk around with that broke. If it was clear that is good and something they will ask you when you get there. As for the other stuff it may be parts of you mucus plug!!!!  All are good indications that your labor is starting. If your not full term I would certainly rush to L&D ASAP!!

Its sounds like your water is slowly breaking I would call L&D and go get checked out just to make sure..Because if your water is slowly breaking they can brake it all the way and you will go into labor..Good luck
