i agree with wicked mama because it happened to me my placenta had a little tear in it early in my pregnancy and i had to stay in the hospital till i was 34 weeks then i finally gave birth. luckly the fluid leaked out slowly everyonce in a while or i would have gottena an infection. i never had a gush i really never even noticed it. i only really knew about it cause of the test and my ultra sounds

Wow! I understand wicked mama has been through this but that makes her no sort of guru on the matter!! Each person is an individual as each pregnancy is DIFFERENT, what was normal for HER may not be normal for every single woman! If ur intuition is telling you something may be wrong PLEASE GO CHECK...would you really wanna take that chance with the life of your child:(? Better safe then sorry you don't wanna be gripping on to a box of Kleenex telling your self you should've went to the Dr.

This. Just because it happened to Wicked Mama doesn't mean it's going to happen to every woman. She was just one pregnancy out of millions. Therefore she is no expert by any means.

Quoting *Wicked Mama*:" I've had three children and one I managed to carry to term with premature ruptured membranes. I think I'm a little more educated to give advice on this topic."

Considering you are neither a midwife or an OB I think you are just as qualified or "educated" to give advice as the rest of us.. Lets keep in mind that no two pregnancies are the same.. Just saying

Quoting *Wicked Mama*:" Okay, so call a woman who has been through it a liar because your midwife couldn't possibly be wrong, ... [snip!] ... water broke too early. Let's hope you never have to go through that and then be called a liar by some uneducated little b***h."

Thats mature.. I think you presume to know entirely too much.. JUST because you had three kids and had issues with one doesnt make you a f**king expert on the matter and calling someone an uneducated little b***h because she has had a different experience than what your holier than thou ass has had doesnt mean she was wrong or you undoubtedly right.. You probably did go through alot with having a complicated pregnancy but that doesnt make you better than anyone, nor does it mean you know everything there is to know about everyones complications.. Once again no two pregnancies are the same and unless you are a Doctor or a midwife you cant really say.. you can but you really come off as a stuck up, wannabe know-it-all b***h.. theres a fact for you

Quoting Moushax37:" Well im only 21 weeks, so im definetly not close enough to delivery! Thats such a huuuge fear of mine. ... [snip!] ... a steady drip, but ive just heard stories of women not even knowing they were leaking amniotic fluid so it just worries me..."


if your worried go to labor and delivery they will do a simple swab test that takes 10 minutes.... i have a slow leak right now that i had an initial gush with some mucus and then i didn't have anything come out til like 6 hours later. I would lay down for a few hours and then stand up and walk around and see if your underwear gets wet at all, if it does go in cuz this happened to me and im now on hospitalized bedrest cuz it was a leak and i caught it really early. I hope it isn't but if you feel something is wrong and this liquid smells sweat kinda follow your mama intuition and go in

Well I'm 16 weeks and I had an amnio done five days ago I'm about 17 weeks now but right after the amnioI had some leakage I was so scared I went to the hospital I was amnio fluid but I'm still pregnant and the baby is fine... I know it was amnio fluid because they ran three test... so just because you leak fluid doesn't mean you will lose your baby and it's not always a gush or alot a fluid let your doctor answer your questions because everyone is different...

Ok I understand that you have had 3 children, but no 2 pregnancies are the same. Just because you might have had this type of problem doesn't make you an expert on the situation. The poster was obviously looking for several opinions, and she got them. But that doesn't mean that your opinion is the correct one for her. I mean I'm having the same problem and I'm looking for opinions before I frantically call my doctor. But I can guarantee you're older than I, seeing as how I'm 20 and I know that lashing out on other posters is immature and unlady like.



And by the way, the laying down and having a small gush when you sit up, because the fluid has accumulated, IS TRUE. It happened to my mother with my brother and I, it happened to my cousin with her first baby, and it's happening to me. So unless you are a licensed and practicing doctor don't shove your "opinions" down other people's throat.



Thank you very much.
