Dr said as long as it didn't gush not to cone in until I'm contracting more frequently. Sooooooooo.... no driving an hour to the hospital just to have it checked.



Would I be able to fill it leaking if I'm just laying down?? Whatever it is has a bleachy smell... is that normal? Umm.. idk give me all your info. :)



TIA!

You're not due for another month. I would go in.




When mine leaked I was two days before my due date. It leaked for 6 hours and I was admitted as soon as I went in.

if your water broke and you're not contracting.. you should go in. Odd htat he said not to. They'd need to do something to get contractions going so you deliver within 18 hours, or start antibiotics

I'd go in. My doctor told me its likely if your water is likely, it'll come out more while laying down because babys head isn't blocking the opening.

Hmm... he said as long wait doesn't gush I am okay not to have her for 48hrs. And I am contracting but not too intense or close yet. He said to call back in the am if nothing happens.

I didn't say go in. I said shouldn't you? My doctor told me if I leak I should go in as soon as I can or else it can lead to infection...
