water leaking vs. peeing


the past 2-3 days I've randomly felt small gushes going down my legs, and I have no idea what the hell it is; Jericho has been completely fine and active like normal

you'd think I'd be able to tell where it was coming from, but I can't.. and I can usually feel when he's putting pressure on my bladder, and he wasn't any of the times I've felt that "gush" of whatever.. and no pressure on my urethra (you'd think you'd be able to tell if you were peeing).. and it's clear, and doesn't smell like anything (haha, had to check ) and.. I just have no freaken clue what to think of it.

I even tried to pee after it happened, and I didn't have to go that bad? gahh.

I'm paranoid because my cousin went into labor yesterday and she's only 22 weeks (haven't heard any updates on her); now I'm just scared something is gonna go wrong!

anybody have any advice? I don't see my midwife until Monday.. and I know your water replenishes itself, and it's only in small amounts every once in awhile.. so it's not an emergency or anything.. but, any ideas?

I had the same thing at 31 weeks , went and got it looked at . the doctor said that it was just normal discharge ... he also said that if you want to know if its your waters to wear a pad for an hour and if you soak it after the hour then you should go get checked out .

ohh, okay. well darn, I don't have any pads. I considered it being discharge, but it was the consistency of water.. I guess it wouldn't hurt to at least call and ask.

When i was around 25 weeks my discarge started to get more watery (TMI) when i asked my midwife she said i was normal around this time.
I would call up and just let your midwife know, it may be you just need to start wearing pads

I'd ring your midwife or go to hospital.
You could be leaking amniotic fluid, especially if its gushes and that much it's trickling down your leg

well I've already got almost $2,000 in medical bills.. so I only try to go for absolute emergencies

I read amniotic fluid replenishes itself, and it wasn't very much fluid leakage.. so it's probably okay.

It does eventually but my midwife always told me to head to L&D if there was any leakage as the baby can become distressed.

The amniotic fluid is essential for the development of muscles, limbs, lungs, and the digestive system.
It also helps their lungs mature in second tri when they practice breathing and aids their movement
