My waters have been leaking constantly for over a week now, this is nothing anyone is worried about. Baby is absolutely fine. The tear is small and is expected to heal itself. The problem actually is that I have to wear a pad all the time if I am wearing clothes (have to wear those if I leave the house!!!) otherwise I end up looking like Ive wet myself. Now I have SPD which isnt horrific but it does cause me pain when walking and therefore I think I have unconciously adjusted my gait and it means that the pad is rubbing my thighs causing VERY painful sores. I HAVE to wear pads with wings else the fluid leaks out the sides after not very long which again leaves the "wet-my-pants" look. Its the very edges (where I bend the wings over my pants) that are rubbing my thighs as I walk and causing the sores. I have, of course, tried to use sterile dressings when I need to wear trousers to cover the sores, I am applying sudocream two/three times a day and leaving "open to air" as much as possible (whenever I am home!!) Just a bit stumped now The sores hurt a lot, it gets to the point of tears as I cant adjust how I walk because of the SPD!! Im just wondering if anyone has ANY suggestions....types of towels, cream, dressings which give extra padding and are non stick....anything! I just sit on a towel when Im at home and generally have legs akimbo to dry out and try to heal the sores they arent infected, am being very careful with it as dont need anything else to deal with I am picking up some crutches on Monday and back to the doctor to see if they have anything to say about it...maybe some magic cream!
