Now all day, almost every time I change positions, I've been leaking more. I smelled it (what else was I supposed to do?) and it didn't smell like pee, but who knows. I've needed a liner/changed underwear a fair amount this pregnancy, but this seems crazy-excessive.
I had my 37 wk CNM visit yesterday and was 2+ cm dilated. Earlier today, the stuff seemed like creamy cervical mucus, for anyone who charted. Now it's runnier to the point where I had to change my shorts because I didn't have a liner on for awhile.
I doubt my water broke because wouldn't I have to lose my mucus plug first? My other babies were at least a week late, so it seems really unlikely that the baby's coming right now, but I've been a total grouch and really uncomfortable, and I don't remember that happening so early the other times.
Has anybody else had leaking get so crazy like this? Is it because I'm dilated enough that who knows what is now draining out of there? Should I call my midwife before she leaves the office for the weekend in 2 hours?
It's just irking me that I can't control it and it feels like I'm peeing myself, but I'm not quite. Also, it feels a lot like when I had substantially bleeding at 12 weeks, so I keep freaking out that I'll find myself in a puddle of blood.

If you are worried though I would call MW, you don't want to worry about it all weekend.
I would def. call the mw and ask for it to be tested... its just a paper strip test, if it comes back negative, no worries... and your MW will not be put out by the worry because it IS a worry, one you don't know but she has too, that your water will break and you wont realize it. Its better to check than assume its not!
One thing my midwife always asks at my visits... no bloody discharge? no leaking of any sort, even just a little?
Nope... only time I get wet down there is when I take a bath! LOL otherwise its creamy still... or mucousy (from the plug)

The last two days I have had *really* watery discharge, to the point that it has crossed my mind about it being my water leaking.
I have an appointment tomorrow and think I'll ask them to just double check. It has made my underwear, pantiliners, and even my shorts/pants wet!
If it's stringy at all like mucous, it probably is mucous. If it's totally liquidy, it could be a leak.
I just hope it doesn't continue at this level for a month or more because I only want to go through so many pair of underwear a day. Agh.
