Yesterday I noticed my underwear being wet, kind of felt like I peed myself a little. I changed and went about my day. Throughout the day I started feeling drippy (like my period was starting) and noticed that my panty liner was wet with clear fluid. Didn't smell like anything. I figured I might be leaking amniotic fluid (I'm 37.4 weeks) and decided to take a wait and see approach. Had some contractions through the day and kept feeling leaky.
I called the MW office this morning and I told a little fib and said I just noticed the wetness this morning. I was told by a nurse to come to L&D right away to get checked out. On the way in I ran into my MW and she told me if I'm admitted now without contractions I'm going to probably be induced. She gave me the option to stay home until 6 pm tonight and see if labor will start on its own as that would be 12 hours after I told them my water broke. If nothing gets going by 6pm she said we may have to talk pitocin (YUCK!)
So here I am, at home, waiting for labor to hopefully start because *i think* my water broke. I didn't want to have them check for sure and end up being at the hospital all day!
Anyone ever had a slow leak before? Or anyone ever had their water break before contractions, and if so how long until labor kicked in? About to take a walk and see if we can get this ball rolling! Please send labor dust my way!!
