Okay so let me tell you how my last birth started. I woke up one night for my usual 5th or so pee and was all wet. Not much, just my panties\, it didn't go through to pj bottoms so I figured I peed myself. Changed, went back to bed. 30 mins later, get up again to pee and wet again. Now in my sleepy state I don't question it too much at first but think its weird. Still not enough to soak through to my pants. Still, the longer I am up the more curious I get and look it up online how to tell the difference. Nothing definitive so I decide I will change one more time and if I wake up wet again, I will know. As I am lifting my leg to put yet another pair of clean underwear on, I get a small gush. Okay, no mistaking that one.
Of course, it was 36 hours until my first contraction and as the day wore on, I kept gushing and verix was in the toilet so I didnt have to wonder.
Okay, now to why i am posting. I was just peeing, got up, still had pants around knees as I have been wearing a panty liner and was changing it, pulled underwear up to just lose fluid or pee myself a bit. I pulled my pants down, thinking the warm water from washing my hands made me pee more even though I just emptied my bladder so i yank off the pad and throw it away and as I am leaning down to get another from under the sink, more comes out and wets my panties. Okayyyy that was weird. I didnt even feel it coming!
I sit on the toilet thinking if more comes out and I see vernix I will know but nothing else comes. I can't even make myself pee. I try and smell the fluid but it smells like nothing. Then again, my pee never smells like anything either unless a drop or two gets on my underwear without a liner and sits for a bit. For me, pee doesn't smell till its been out of your body for a bit. I have no way to know what just happened. AFter the laboring last night to have it just stop, I am scared to even think it could be really something.
Anyone else have this happen and it was just pee? I believe I have read several stories like that. All i know to do is put a thicker pad on and wait and see. If it is indeed fluid, not pee, more will surely come.
