My water never broke with my son, so I don't have a whole lot of advice on this, but if it were me, I would definitely call the doc or go to L&D just to be on the safe side. Are your contractions picking up at all?
Almost the exact same thing happened to me with my last pregnancy. I went potty in the middle of the night and stood up and about a cup of liquid ran down my leg. I KNEW it wasn't urine...when I tightened my muscles, I couldn't stop it. So I went to the hospital and they did that strip test, and it tested negative for amniotic fluid. Okay, whatever. So I went home. Saw the MD the next morning for a regular appointment and he said my water hadn't broken...as I stood up to leave I GUSHED on the floor. He sent me over to the hospital, where AGAIN I tested negative for amniotic fluid. They called the doc, who said hey, I SAW it, I know her water broke, and he ordered an ultrasound. They found there was almost no fluid left! Thank GOD that happened in front of the doctor - the hospital was about to send me home again. Anyway...long story...but it sounds to me like your water is leaking. Definately go to the hospital. If you lose anymore water, ask them to do an ultrasound to check the fluid level. GOOD LUCK!
My first son, my waters were leaking for a week, then the Dr's had to "finish" the job. My second I dialated all the way to 7 before I made it to the hospital, and my water never did break, So I can't be of much help, but I hope this is it for you, and you get to meet your little bundle real soon! Keep us posted.
It very well sound like you water may have broken. One thing to try is to lie down wearing a pad and then check it before and then after you stand up - AF tends to leak a little more when you stand.
In any case, you are doing the right thing by going to L&D to get checked out. If your water has broken, its important to deliver within 24h to prevent infection from setting in.
Your water can break and then reseal itself, mine did in the middle of labor. I would contact your doctor since it does seem like thats what is happening.
My ob said that you need to go to L&D within an hour after your water breaks because infection can set in...I would call L&D or go because it does sound like your water broke. The baby's head could be what sealed it off from leaking more...Good luck!
Ok well i went to the L&D and tested neg i guess....i dont get it. I felt a pop and a gush came out but I didnt go to the hospital until the next evening. He is +1 so hes way down there. Could his head be possibly blocking the flow? Or i could of partially tore? It *****, because there not much they will do unless i test positive. I dont want to get infected or my child. So I guess i will just have to wait it out i suppose. Thanks for your comments and opinion guys!
if it happens again, i'd insist on an ultrasound
