    lol I did that, I felt like a complete hypochondriac when she said it was just discharge! Definitely get it checked though, they don't mind :) They're looking for pinky or clear fluid with no smell on the pad if that helps and it would be quite wet not just damp. Try going for a walk with it on as if it doesn't happen then it's probably fine :)

    I went to my parentcraft lessons last week and they spoke about waters breaking and slow leaks etc which obviously put the idea in my head as a couple of days later I thought I had a slow leak.

    I called the labour ward and they said monitor it for an hour and call back, they didn't sound worried. I then called back and probably sounded so silly as I said I couldnt tell if the pad was damp or just a bit warm lol! I spoke to a different MW and she said pop down the to the birthing unit and checked me over and suprise suprise I was fine lol! I felt like a time waster but they were really nice and said it was better to be safe, especially at this late stage.

    If your worried call the labour ward and they'll give you some advice. No point you worrying yourself. You also get to hear the baby's heartbeat if they ask you to go down there which is always nice :) But I'm sure it's just excess discharge as they said its so common.

    I think its always worth getting it checked out as when i had my little girl, i had the same thing, just feeling more damp most days. Turned out when i actually went into labour my water never broke, i had a completely dry labour as my water had been leaking for weeks. As i had group b strep too it was lucky my little girl was healthy so i would always advise getting it checked out. The most important thing is the health of your little one, not whether your bothering anyone. Good luck!! xx
