    I am not sure what's happening but think either I have really thin DC or poss the start of my waters breaking? I had been to the toilet and then was up walking around and there was quite a lot of watery leakage on my pad. it's not constantly flowing but just wondering if this could be the start or just lots of thin DC? Can't be pee as deffo emptied my bladder on loo. What do u think? Xx

    Mine trickled out over a few hours so it could well be. Have you actually felt it coming out? Might be worth giving hospital a call and asking them. Eek hope it is xx

    It's very annoying isnt it! I keep being paranoid that mine are 'trickling' I have the sensation of it, but then nothing on the pad. I keep assuming I will lose plug first?

    I wish it was more like on tv where its like a balloon bursting over your feet, embarrasing but at least you would know!

    I have felt fluids coming out but as star fish says no plug before or with it and it's clear so it must be DC....oh well we'll see. Not holding out my hope really but we'll see. Xxx

    I know as of yesterday it can be a trickle or a gush, and it doesn't always need blood or plug :S I assumed it would! xx

    Mine trickled hun!! :D
    I was expecting a huge gush but nope. Up until about an hour before Grace was born I was still trickling waters.
    I went for a wee when I first noticed my waters leaking. There was water coming out after I urinated :)
    Good luck!! xxx

    Not my waters :-( just a lot of watery discharge! Oh dear me! The midwife did have a wiggle around up there so hopefully might start things off there. Also there's a chance induction can be booked for Thursday and not Xmas eve (even though I don't want to be induced) which is better than being in over Xmas and having an Xmas day baby.
