did my water break or not? - UPDATE first post.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Yesterday I had bloody show and lost my mucous plug throughout the day. I had a handful of painful contractions but very very far apart and irregular. I woke up at 6am this morning to some sort of fluid leaking out into my underwear. It defintiely wasn't pee or CM but there wasn't a whole lot of it either. It probably would have soaked a panty liner but that's it. Nothing much since then so I really don't think it broke but I hope I am close since I had bloody show and passed my plug yesterday....thoughts?

UPDATE: Ok, that definitely wasn't it, but NOW my water has broken! I woke up to soaked underwear and PJs and am about to soak through another pad. No contractions just yet, still waiting for those to start. Going to call my CNMs in a few minutes.

It could go either way. It may be just a small high leak that will reseal itself if labor doesn't kick in. It sounds like labor is about to start though, so it very well could be the real thing. I would keep anything and everything out of there and intermittently try walking and resting. Good luck!

DDCC... CM can be really, really watery sometimes. It could be that. Or, as the PP said, it could be a high leak, which can re-seal. When my water broke before labor, I was sitting down soaking through several towels, like gushing.

You sound close anyway, though... good luck!

When my water broke this time I was laying in bed and felt a little pop during a contraction. I thought I might have felt something leaking so I went to investigate and saw that I'd lost my plug. After that I got a lot of bloody show, but I was also leaking something else. It wasn't a lot, just little gushes when I would walk. I think the babies head was so low that it didn't come out in a big gush. I know it was my water because it never broke during active labor. Just thought I'd offer another perspective, it is possible for your water to break and not gush out. Either way, it sounds like you're close. GOOD LUCK!!!!
