I have been reading and reading and seem to not be able to get a clear answer. My water broke this morning and it was bright yellow. Could this mean there is meconium in the amniotic fluid? If there is, then is it really that bad? I am so discouraged right now. The last few weeks I have been having contractions all day every day. For the last 4ish days they have been alternating between hours of very intense contractions and hours of milder contractions. It has been hard to go out and do anything. My water has been leaking for a few days at least and finally gushed everywhere multiple times this morning. Once my water broke, I had very intense contractions that I had to vocalize through and then POOF, they were gone. I am so sick of them getting strong and regular and getting my hopes up and then having them disappear. I'm also concerned because ever since I lost my mucus plug about a week ago, I have been having A LOT of very think yellow mucus come out every time I go pee.
I was due 4 days ago. My baby is active and I feel healthy. I have tried everything to stimulate labor. I've tried sex, walking up and down hills and steps, jogging, bouncing, dancing, electric breast pump, evening primrose oil, and even castor oil. My water has been leaking for days and now that it has actually broken, I'm wondering how long this could possibly last!! Also concerned about the yellow color.
