Hi all, so a few hours ago I blew my nose and had a big gush, like I wet my pants. I checked and it was the normal amount that I am used to when pissing my pants! a little while later I look and it has soaked through my underwear and pants. So I call my midwife and she says go to the hospital if there is any question of my fluid leaking. I am still in doubt.<br><br>
then I call a friend whose water broke and she says it sounds familiar. we are now on our way to the hospital. waiting for dh to come home, my sister just came to get my son's stuff/carseat.<br><br>
I am in shock, don't want to get too excited b/c I just am not convinced. I am due on the 1st, so 38 weeks seems right.....but what if we get there and then turn around and come home? shenanagins!<br><br>
will notify you either way! pop pop pop!

Even pee pee pants would make a good story. But yes, a baby would be a better surprise for you! Good luck!

Did you feel a "pop" before the gush? But if you kept on making a mess of yourself, I'd want to say your water broke!<br><br>
Good luck and I hope it is the outcome you want tonight!

I did not continue to leak and so I guess I just really peed my pants. I was so upset. we actually were heading to the hospital and my fav midwife said it didn't sound right, that the amnio fluid has to keep on coming out...<br><br>
now I just have the blues. I am done with taking care of my toddler in this physical state. i have tons of work to do still (professional) and I am just plain old tired. I just cannot tell what is what w/ these fluids anymore. sigh<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/angry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="angry">

Aw, I'm sorry -- it's so hard to get yourself all emotionally ready for delivery only to be sent back home. Here's hoping you get the real deal soon!!

Aww, sorry it wasn't the real thing. I've blown my nose three times since you first posted and couldn't help but think of you! I made sure I crossed my legs every time.

that's too funny!<br><br>
ltk, maybe it is good that this happened so you can get get things in order for your birth. If you would have been in labor, you would have the same amount of professional work, your toddler, a newborn, AND be recovering! Maybe now you can finnish/delegate the work so you can be freeeeeeee!<br><br>
take care of yourself!
