    ...between waters and normal discharge? I sit up inbed and feel a trickle coming out (sorry tmi) and my undies are all wet. Not soaked through. It's clear and watery. I've not lost any plug or had any show yet as far as I'm aware. Periods pains have increased but not had much in the way of braxton hicks. Baby has quietened down over past two days too. Think I'm just getting my hopes up after all the babies popping this past week.xx

    It could be your waters hun, When i had that scare i told them there was no blood etc but they still thought it was waters, call up the delivery suite and tell them they will probably leave it an hour and see if any more comes away and then you may need to go up to be checked. They won't want to leave you incase it is waters and you get an infection xx

    I've had this today too, with a constant period type pain, and loads of BH.
    Don't know what it is, I'm just gonna hold out and monitor it and see what happens. Xx

    It was a trickle for me like you described.
    I had no idea if it was my waters or not as not much came out but when I got examined in the hospital it was definitely my waters. I had a pee on the toilet and after the pee, a little bit of water trickled out and it happened again about an hour after when I had another pee, that's how it was for me :) xxx
