I am 38 weeks today, and I'm pretty sure my water just broke. I was taking a warm bath and I felt intense pressure on my cervix and then a pop and a BIG gush of fluid. If it had happened in bed it would have made a huge mess. But I'm not leaking a ton now, so I am totally second-guessing myself. I definitely have more dampness down there than usual, and it has a weird sweet/musty smell that is definitely not normal.
Thankfully I am GBS negative, and I checked in with my midwife. The plan is for me to get as much sleep as I can, and if labor hasn't started yet to go in first thing in the morning to see if it really is amniotic fluid leaking or not. !!! I was totally convinced that I was going to go late again with this little one, so I am shocked. And maybe it isn't amniotic fluid, maybe the baby made a big movement and kicked the urine out of my bladder or a lot of discharge all at once.
I kind of wish I was leaking A LOT so there wouldn't be any doubt, but the baby is really low and engaged so he could just be acting as a cork. Any positive labor vibes appreciated. As a matter of fact, I probably need calm-down-and-go-to-sleep vibes even more!
<3 Keep you guys posted! Hopefully I'll get a nice full night of sleep and you won't hear from me until morning.
