Fluid leak at 38 weeks? Sucka4babies 2 kids; Mililani, Hawaii 148 posts

I just noticed this leak about 1 hour ago. I thought maybe it was a lot of discharge, felt it between my legs and soaked my undies. I wiped and went to pick up my brother from his tennis club, on my way there the same sensation came again. when we got home I looked and it was the same type of fluid, I finally placed a panty liner on. I really dont want to get excited, I am trying to stay calm. Its so hard when your waiting for you little one, any sign is a good one!
I am going to see if it continues.



Oh yea, I have been having contractions since saturday, and lost my mucus plug on monday.



Has anyone had a similar experience?

your in labor babe... once you start feeling constant trickle of fluid thats yiur water breaking so you will soon have contractions stronger and closer together.. make sure you have your bag ready and call your doctor to give them the heads up you will be in soon!!! good luck and congrats! remember to relax and breathe!lol

with my 2 daughter's I went in like 3 times with each thinking my water was leaking.. Turns out it was just sweat and extra discharge since it was hot outside.

I had that and thought it was my water. I went in and it was just increased discharge which is normal in late pregnancy.

i had just went in a few days ago thinking my water was leaking too sadly it wasnt =[

they told me next time i think that happens to be sure put a pad on and it should feel heavy if it is the amniotic fluid u'll know the diff between the fluid and discharge because the discharge will sit on top of the pad...to me it sounds like your going to meet your LO soon sence you lost your plug already too good luck =]

OP lay on your back kinda like when they check you for dilation, and bear down, yes push like you are in labor, if fluid leaks its most likely your water. Also if you have a leak on top of your sac it might not mean much kinda depends...Good Luck
