Since friday I have been thinking I was weeing myself and its been doing it still, and I went to triage last night and she sed it wasn't my waters wich to me it smelt like it and now today I have used 4 diffrent pads an there has been brown stringy stuff on all the pads I'm confused, scared and don't know what it is x

It's true, though. They don't expect you to necessarily be able to feel regular movement at this point. The baby is still pretty small and can easily move into a position where you can't feel it move so easily. They like to worry us, these babies!

No they didn't offer me any reasurrance she was actually quite snotty. Still leaking water and brown stuff so will just have to see how I feel in the morning and give them a ring bk x

That's really poor practice of them not to offer you any reassurance- in the form of scan etc.
hope you are managing to rest & that you get someone more helpful tomorrow.

That's truly shocking, I would of thought they would of at least wanted you in so they could listen to Hb ect. If I were you I would kick up a fuss. where I'm from they have you straight In if you have pains and blood/ fluid/ change in discharge and your sat on a monitor for a good hour with urine sample and everything checked. Fully understandable your pissed off I would be. X

That is very poor jessjess i wouldn't be happy either! The movement part is partially right, baby is still small but you know your own baby, that added to your concerns regarding fluid they should be checking you out . Hope you get seen tomorrow & i hope all is well x

Sod the midwifes, go to the hospital! There is nothing worse than a worrying pregnant woman + its better to be safe rather than sorry. I'm sure it won't be anything bad but its making you feel like this then pleaseeee go and see someone smile

Hope your doing ok in every other way thanks

Are you going to go back today? I hope you get a more sympathetic midwife/nurse! I would refuse to leave until you're examined properly.

Hi girls sorry for the late comment. Been trying to get sum rest. Actually managed to get some sleep also there has been no more fluid or brown threw the night. And the baby is bein very active this morning feeling quite positive so I don't think there is any point ringing the hosp again. Unless it comes bk today. What do u guys think?? X

Oh good news!smile

I would still call. Just for reassurance more than anything x

TobyLerone Thu 31-Oct-13 13:14:16

Excellent news! I probably wouldn't ring because they won't do anything now everything seems ok. Obviously if any issues come back, ring them immediately.

terilou87 Thu 31-Oct-13 18:18:24

That's very good news, with babystuff id always say go with your instinct, mum's always know best!

NandH Fri 01-Nov-13 18:59:54

Great news!!!

If your happy that baby is moving and you've had no more brown stuff then don't panic about calling, although make sure you are seen properly if you get any more smile

Hope the rest of your pregnancy runs smoothly smile
