    I understand your worry I went to ER this weekend because I thought I was leaking also. You can do what she said or you can try to catch what leaks on a towel and smell it, if it smells like urine you might just be leaking urine and not know it, thats what happened with me, embarassing I know but a chance.

    I would call or go in to see your midwife. I'm experiencing something similar so I'm going in tomorrow to be checked out. I'd rather be safe than sorry!

    If you're genuinely concerned then don't worry about "bothering" your midwife! She's there to answer your questions and to take care of you!

    Don't be embarrassed! I was about as far along as you when I leaked urine and it freaked me out!
