    How do you know if your waters are leaking??
    Yesterday, every now and then I kept feeling a trickling feeling, but every time I went & checked, my Tena lady was clear! Later I touched it (disgusting I know) & it was damp! Usually there are yellowish Marks on it from discharge but not yesterday! So I took the Tena lady off & sure enough within about half an hour my knickers was damp! But it wasn't the usual thick stuff, they just looked & felt damp! So I slept all night in my knickers & several times when I got up they was damp! This morning we had a sniff (eeewwww!) and it doesn't smell like urine!!! I've put a Tena lady back on & I am still feeling the odd trickle, but I noticed that there is a very pale yellow mark there this morning!
    I don't know what to do!! I want to call maternity ward because of the infection risk, but I'm scared I'm wrong!!! What do you think??? X x

    Oh to those who are on my friends on facebook, please don't put anything on there yet, I don't want everyone phoning or texting just yet!!

    I knew if that makes sense and the midwife sent me away and didn't take notice of me! It had a smell to it but not a nasty one I thought and it was very liquid! Dunno what else I can say. I'll drop u a message later. Hope ur ok!

    Ok thanks girls. I called them and she said towards the end the discharge does got very watery which is why a lot of people get them mixed up. I've got to wear a maternity pad for a few hours, she said after a few hours if it is quite damp, then it's most likely my waters and I will have to go in for a check up, then go back in to be induced in a few days. I'm guessing it is just discharge :( but thanks again ladies x x x

    Aww I hope it does mean something! I want us both to pop on our due date and not have to be induced!

    I've not had anything watery as such just some clumpy white discharge (tmi lol). I'm praying for my waters to just pop sometime soon :(!

    Weird they will wait a few days to induce-is that what u want? I went straight into the hospital to be examined to check if it was watery DC or waters. Hope something happens naturally soon for you xxxx

    Thanks girls, sadly I don't think it's my waters :( I guess my discharge has just turned watery! Me too Hunnie but she really is teasing! The braxton hicks make me stop whatever I'm doing now & often I shout ouch! I'm getting really down now :( our hospital seems to really be against inductions! The earliest they will induce me if me or Lilli don't have any problems is the 24th!! I keep thinking that I've got at least another two weeks of not sleeping, not being able to get comfy and the back ache & braxton hicks!! Just makes me wanna cry :'(
    Oh well back to the waiting game! Fingers crossed it won't be much longer for us girls & I'm really hoping you manage to start Hunnie before your induction date x x x x x
