It has to be it, I'm not sure what else it is. I started to 'leak' something last night around 10 pm. It wasn't urine as I had just emptied my bladder and when i went to sit down something leaked out involuntarily. Thankfully it was on my black leather chair - when i wiped up the liquid is was clear fluid but it did have a pinkinsh tinge to it. It was not mucosy.

Well, whatever it is it's coming out more now. I'm wearing a pad and it's coming out in larger amounts and the pink tinge is getting darker. Could this be my 'bloody show' mixed in with amniotic fluid? It's definately not mucous, but pure liquid. I'm not having any contractions whatsoever. It's 5:30am right now, should I call my Dr. in the morning to confirm whether or not it is amniotic fluid? I know the membranes can rupture and it can take a while for contractions to start - what is the average it usually takes? Since I am attempting a VBA2C I was told to call my OB as soon as my water breaks - if it breaks. I don't want to do that until I know there is serious action occuring as I understand the bag can re-seal.

Any thoughts?

Oh mama! I does sound like you are on your way! I wish I had some good information for you, but my water broke in a gush after contrax had started... I DID think they had broken/leaked at one point--at the hospital they did a check with a little piece of paper and discovered it was just urine oh well! Mine wasn't tinged pink though.
Good luck to you mama! I'm thinking of you!

Been there done that (on Sunday )
It definately sounds like amniotic fluid. This may sound gross...but smell it. Amniotic fluid smells really different from urine...kind of a sweet smell.
Best wishes for a safe delivery mama!

Aw thanks ladies.

It's definately amniotic fluid, test strip turned blue right away. Just waiting for some major contractions to kick in. Right now they are minor and tolerable. Went to my chiro. today for a final adjustment and she says my pelvis is in ideal condition and baby fully down, ready to go. Wish me luck! There is nothing I want more than this VBA2C!
