(TMI)can ur water break slowly enough to where it seems like discharge? for about 3 hours ive had a increase in discharge i think? it leaks down my leg when i stand. its not mucusey like my normal discharge it more like just water. i can feel it leaking when im sitting. im confused because i thought it would be a big gush? maybe its just discharge?? what do yall think???

With my first I leaked very slow. I would sit there and it would just run out. If I moved I could feel it almost as if I was peeing without control a little.

yes it can. a lot of times your water breaking is just a trickle. i'd go to L&D and have it checked.

My SIL's water leaked like that for 2 days before she realized what it was. If you are concered I would call your doctors after hours phone number to ask about it. Since it is running down your leg, I;d call to be sure, better safe than sorry.

if its enough to RUN down your leg, and it doesnt smell like actual urine, you are definetly leaking and its a good idea to go to L&D and get checked out. They can test you to see if your leaking, check your cervix, and theres the possibility you could be holding your bundle of joy within the next 24 hours (hopefully you dont have a longer labor)

I have the samething going on. My doc said it can be a slow leak and that the babies head acts like a cork. :roll: Its so effin frustrating because you just want it to pop. I'm sorry because I know exactly how you feel. Hopefully soon

I would call L&D or head in. Take your panty liner with you - they can test it to see if it's fluid.



I've heard a good test is to put a new liner on, and lay down for 30 minutes...get up and check it after a couple minutes. If it's wet, it's probably fluid. The idea is that it'll pool while you lay down, and then all leak out pretty quickly after you get up.
