    Went to see my midwife, i asked her about my very watery discharge i get occasionally that gushes from me, she thinks it could be leaking waters? but i haven't had much today, it only occurs like once a day or so when ive been lying down and sit up suddenly or stand up and start walking.
    So have to go into hospital later for a swab as they don't do them at our surgery....they don't do much tbh its only very small. Anyone else experience this? :) x

    It's quick and easy. A swab and a peek to see if there is any pooling. 2 minutes, tops.

    Hope all is well! x
