Could my water have broke? A-2 Due June 14; 2 kids; Zimbabwe 6881 posts

Ok, so at about 8:30 pm I went to bed. I was dead tired and able to fall asleep pretty easily.
I woke up maybe ten minutes ago, it's 10pm. I was very hot and kinda sweaty, when I went out to the living room my SO commented about it and laughed asking if my water had broke or anything. I shrugged it of, the headed for the bathroom. while walking I felt the inside of my leg and it was water. I thought it was sweat, because like I said I was very sweaty.
After going to the bathroom I went back to look at the bed and theres a huge water mark......
I know I sweat a lot, but is there any way that could be sweat or something else?
Or was that my water?

Put on a pad...lay down for 30 minutes....then get up and check to see if it's wet. If it is, make sure it's not urine (amonia smell).



If you're really worried you can call L&D and see what they'd like you to do.

I heard you could lay down and cough or laugh and if a gush of warm fluid comes out then its probly your water

You should know shortly if it is...reason why I say this is because I thought when I was preggo that it would be this huge gush of water, like you see in the movies, but it wasn't because she was so low and her head was blocking my cervix and everything else while I was carrying so low, so I was told there was a possibility that I could slowly leak instead of a huge gush and thats exactly what I did.
If it is your water, it won't be just a little water stain, you'll continue to wet your pants for awhile...it won't just be a little leak and then over. If your pants keep getting wet, chances are your leaking your amniotic fluid, and then you need to go to labor and delivery to go get checked.
Also, I had scares many times in my last few weeks of pregnancy. I thought it was my water alot of the time and really it was pee, lol. The baby was so low that when she's push on my bladder, I'd leak a little pee pee. If I laughed, coughed, or didn't do anything and she'd just press against it, a little bit of pee would come out and I'd be off to the hospital to get checked and they got so sick of me that they gave me these swabs for home that you can just swab a little of the fluid with the tip and if it changed color than it was your water, so those were a good thing the last few weeks...
But if nothing else comes out, chances are you just peed a little bit, but if more of something comes out, call your gyno and go to labor and delivery to be checked and of course, if contractions would come on, go regardless.
