Re: anyone else expierancing this..?!?!

Have you notified your OB about this? You could be slowly leaking amniotic fluid without the sac actually rupturing. There are ways for them to check to see if this is just normal vaginal discharge or actual amniotic fluid.

Re: anyone else expierancing this..?!?!

I agree, you need to call your doctor ASAP (even at night) and ask to be checked for leaking amnionic fluid. I was leaking such a little bit that I didn't know it. The doctor checked me with a special small strip of paper and found the wetness was amnionic fluid. It's similar to the strip used by regular diabetics to test urine. I was hospitalized, put on antibiotics, and the baby was born soon.

Don't delay. A possible leak is serious until it's proven to not be a leak. Any rupture of the membranes can make the baby sick which is why a baby must be delivered within 24 hours of a rupture - or a leak. If you have a fever - go to the ER tonight. Call and leave a message for your doctor, then go.

Wishing you well - Barbara

I would take a trip over to L&D and have them do the strip test for amniotic fluid especially if it is clear liquid. I know this sounds gross but did you smell it cause it might be pee..happened to me with my first, anyway I am 35 1/2 weeks and I have a huge amount of discharge and just got some vaginal inserts for it, so I say go get it checked

Off topic but what's a vaginal insert? A tampon? I thought you weren't suposed to put much of anything up there? Anyway, Kay, please go to L&D and get it checked out. Atleast call your doc. You could possibly get an infection and it could hurt the baby if it's not taken care of. What color is it? If it is green or brown you need to get in ASAP. That is a sign of fetal distress. Good luck and let us know what happened.
