Anyone know more about dilation and what it feels like inside when your dilated???
|If you are leaking amniotic fluid...please don't check your cervix without gloves...it can introduce bacteria and if you aren't in full blown labor you don't want to do that. Ditto the bath....it's fine to be in a bath once contractions start and you know you are in labor but if you have a slow leak or labor is getting ready to start but hasn't you want to keep the area as clean as possible to prevent introducing bacteria. Your mw/doc will usually do a STERILE exam to check and see if it's amniotic fluid and you just can't do that at home so I'd just leave it be for now and see if labor starts up...if you are full term. If not...I'd call and have them check. Not to be an alarmist or anything it's just you don't want to end up with an infection...it leads to all sorts of intervention you really just don't want.|
