    for the past couple of days my discharge seems to be a bit watery. the past week or so its increased, its the usual white stuff but now it seems a bit more watery if that makes any sense? ive got a sani pad on and its the usual colour but just wondering if this is normal and if anyone else is having this too? x

    I've had it on the odd few days over the past couple of weeks. Figured it's just discharge as it stops and starts. Ive done the "lie down for an hour then stand up" thing and nothing comes out so I'm not too worried about it. If it was coming out all the time then I'd get worried xx

    I've been having this too.
    I've had it since about 39 weeks. Last week it changed colour so the MW was concerned it was my waters and that there was meconium. I went to the hospital and they checked me out and confirmed it was just discharge and not my waters and that there was no infection or anything.
    I'm back to just having watery water again now.
    I think if you are concerned you should phone your MW for advice. They will tell you the best thing to do. Whether that it is just to monitor it yourself or whether you need to be checked over.

    I went to the dr for this exact thing last week. I thought my waters were leaking. They did an internal, and swabbed to check, but it seems that it was just watery discharge (which was different than what i had previously had).

    he did state very carefully that if your waters break, it is usually quite a large amount, but can be just a little leak, and its important to establish is it is in fact your water, becuase they will have to induce labor within 24 hours, as once it goes, there is a high risk of infection for baby.

    If it continues, call your mw and ask her what she suggests doing

    thanks girls. well i called the mw earlier just to be safe and she told me to come in a get checked. what i forgot to mention was last night when having some fun with hubbi i had a small gush of fluid which i wasnt sure what it was. (i thought i may have gushed sexually lol). anyways midwife checked and couldnt really tell, she said the babys head is that far down she thinks its acting like a plug. but she's fairly confident (although i'm not) that my waters may have gone and i'm booked in for an induction tomorrow morning. eek!!!

    although saying that it's not 100% they'll do it if they dont think my waters are leaking so i need to keep all my pads and show them, nice ay. x
