Ok, so about an hour ago I had some fluid run down my legs and I amknow cramping in my lower back and stomach. I will only be 30 weeks on sunday and not sure as to what this could be. I am laying down on my left side with no relief. What could this be.

I would call your doctor to make sure it's not your water leaking.

Your doc can't tell you over the phone if your fluid is leaking, but he will probably tell you to go in to L&D and get it checked. There is a little strip of paper they will use to test, so no pain. If it turns blue, it's your fluid. If you've had sex in the last 24 hours, though, it could give you a false positive on that, and they'd have to run a more specialized test.

Sounds like your water broke & youre in pre term labor. Go into L&D now!

Thanks ladies, just called my ob and he told me to get to
L&D and he will meet me there. Just hoping that this is not pre-term labor.

Ok so doc says it is pre-term labor but they are giing me meds to stop it and are talking about admitting me for a few days. If they don't admit this is going to be so much fin

i had this 2 days ago and i am 36 weeks... mine turned out to be just regular discharge... every time i stand up it like gushes out ... im afraid i wont be able to tell when my water actually does break lmao.. BUT nothing is touching my cramps in my back or hips... dr said it wasnt uncommen... hopefully yours is just like what i went through!! i was aiming for no epidural in labor... ha... if these back cramps are only a quarter of the real deal I def fooled myself!
