I guess it's better that I got to L & D right?

    Well earlier this morning I was sitting on my exercise ball just swaying back and forth when I felt two small gushes of fluid. I went to check my pad but it was just damp, there was no odor so I know it was not pee. I put on another pad and laid down for about 30 minutes and when I got up the pad was dry. I gave in and called my doctors office. The nurse finally called me back and said that the best bet is to go and make sure that it wasn't my waters. I explained to her that I really haven't had any contractions and I don't seem to be leaking anymore but she said it's better to go get checked since I'm a day overdue. I'm kind of annoyed that we have to go because I really don't want it to be a waste of time. The only thing is that this is exactly what happened with my DS, I was sure I had peed myself but it turned out that it was my water and I started having contractions later that night. I don't want to get my hopes up and I really wish there was a way to be sure without having to go to L & D. I don't even know if it's normal to not have any real patterned contractions after your water breaks. It's 4:10 pm here and I felt the gushes around 11:30 this morning. I'm pretty annoyed!!

    I've heard of it happen where someone's water has gone and they haven't had contractipns start on their own. Always best to get it checked :)

    I didn't have contractions until about 12 hours after my waters broke. Good luck x

    My hind waters went early evening on the Saturday with my son and I had him at 00:14 on the Wednesday. My contractions didn't start til 10pm on the Tuesday and that was following them breaking the rest of the bag of waters.

    Good luck xx
