Hi everyone. I thought I would post here only a few weeks to third tri and maybe I would get more responses.
My problem is when I woke up I had very slight lower abdomen dull aches. This isnt normal for me so I noticed it straight away. When I stood up I felt wet down there like I was dripping. I went into the toilet and my inner thighs were wet. When I wiped it was clear and thin with no smell. I then felt down there (sorry tmi) and it was very wet and slippery. I wasnt wearing any underwear and my sheets werent wet but since then the pains have got a little bit stronger. Not omg im in agony pain.but its there.
I thought maybe my waters might have leaked but my mum said if they had broke I would know about it and the pains are probably the start of braxton hicks. This is my first so all this is new to me.I was majorly stressed yesterday which I dont think helped Hes moving around so I know hes alright but should I be worried? Has anyone experianced this before? Im 26 weeks today.
call your doctor. leaking amniotic fluid at 26 weeks is a very big problem! your mom is wrong, as others have said--your waters can certainly leak and never gush. this early they are more likely to leak and low fluids are not good for baby.
id definitely give your midwife a ring. not all waters go with a gush. it could just be increased discharge but if there was enough for it to cover your thighs that's quite a lot. definitely worth getting checked x
