re post since the last one got messed up and wont let me get Marissa Rodriguez Due June 1; Plainview, Texas 6 posts5th May
So im almost 36 weeks. and ive been having contractions for a while. they have gotten maybe 25 mins apart. which im not worried. i dont know if my water has broken. i keep changing my undies because its constantly wet. but the last time i went they said it was pee. (the hospital staff is incredibly rude so i dont like going unless i know i need to go.) i am high risk and have already had the steroid shot to make sure the babys lungs would be developed because i have had many complications since the very beginning. my contractions dont hurt i just feel reallllly uncomfortable when they happen. but ive also started getting sharp pains in my sides and my hips feel like someone is trying to rip me in two. i can feel a constant "thump" like pressure lower. and its starting to hurt. this is my first baby. and i dont know what i should be expecting. can anyone give me advice or something. like i said. i wont go to the er unless i know for sure i need to go. because they are rude. last time i left crying because the nurse told me i need to learn how to take a bath and loose weight... and my doc NEVER answers his line. (i had to call one of the other OB docs when i went last time because my doc didnt answer)

If you think your water has broken you always want to be checked. That being said an increase in discharge is totally normal and unless I worse a liner my panties were always soaked in the last few weeks. Everything else just sounds like normal end of pregnancy stuff.

Most of this sounds like normal end of pregnancy stuff. It's really uncomfortable. If you think you are leaking try laying down for 10-15 min and then stand up. If you feel a "gush" then you need to go to L&D and get checked. It is normal to have watery discharge or even a little pee leak at the end of pregnancy.
