TMI - leaking waters?


So the past couple of days Iíve noticed very damp underwear. I assumed it was sweat, what with this heatwave.
But yesterday and today it was enough to soak through my underwear and leggings - I tried the peeing trick to make sure Iím not leaking urine and it doesnít appear to be that. Put on a pad and change the pad a few times a day because it feels damp.
Anyway, Iím bouncing on my ball right now (induction has been postponed until 9am tomorrow) and sitting on a towel to minimise sweat. But now the towel and my
Pj shorts feels damp.
Thereís no smell really - just kind of sweet.

I know itís tmi, but has anyone had experience with waters leaking? How do I know if Iím leaking or just a sweaty b*tch I donít want to call midwives and waste time as theyíre so busy today already

So Iíve never had leaking waters but my water did break with my first. My experience was it was just like the movies where there was fluid everywhere and unmistakably my waters. I called my midwife who had me come in and they tested it. I donít think itís a bother if you call them even if you are being induced tomorrow. I think itís worth having the test done. Good luck!

Iím monitoring with a pad, which is what theyíve advised for now, so I donít have to go in.
I can remember the Ďhindí waters going wth DD 5 years ago but I donít remember how much it was or anything. Itís all a bit of a blur tbh.

Either way, hopefully wonít have much longer to wait

Very true. I hope itís not long for you. Out of curiosity, how will they manage your induction now? Iíve never been induced so sorry if itís a silly question.

Sounds like it but only way to know for sure is to go in and have them check. Good job your induction is tomorrow though ay x

I'd say either you're gonna go naturally tonight, or they can test your the fluids tomorrow and pretty much can't turn you away if your waters are leaking. Either way you're having this baby, mama!!

In both my past pregnancies, I had small leaks before labor. I'd notice it'd leak out at times when there's no way it'd be urine, like when I was sitting. You can also test it with pH paper because it's different than with urine. If you're already getting induced though, I'd probably just have them test it in the morning and possibly give you some antibiotics.

I'm pretty sure I saw some pads from Boots which would test if it's your waters? Similar to what they use at the hospital! May be worth trying!

I spoke to my midwife about this the other day as all of a sudden I've had large damp patches. She said if I put a pad on and that is wet enough to change it then I need to call as waters can have a small leak and trickle x

Iím in the hospital now. They were about to induce but the baby has moved transverse, so waiting to see if Iíll need a section or if theyíll try turning her themselves.
My waters are leaking but itís a slow trickle so atm theyíre just keeping an eye on me. They havenít mentioned any antibiotics but I hve drs coming to see me this morning so maybe theyíll start them then?
