Today I felt a gush in my work pants, I went and checked and was clear couple hours later I start having contractions/pains then it slowed down. Couple hours later I felt another leak and no contractions yet....my baby hasn't dropped completely...not sure what I should do?

Go in to get checked as to whether it was amniotic fluid or not.

You can be in labor without your baby dropping.



It could also be really bad discharge. I'd keep an eye on it and if you can, time your contractions. Try using a pad and see how much it saturates. Where you still have a few weeks, if you think your water broke, you should go get checked.

sounds like it. i'd go in to be checked. all they do is swab you and if its fluid, it turns blue(i think)

I would atleast call and see what the doc wants you to do. It could be your water, it could be discharge, or it could be pee lol. Its always better to be safe than sorry.
