Ok so I slightly freaked out with myself I am 23 wks 5d and haviing a normal first pregnancy so far!
I had a slight tummy cramp and passed wind and burst out laughing then urine ( i think ?! )
Shot out - a little puddle .
How do I know its wee or was it my waters ?
Its really freaked me out cos i couldnt control it .
I am fine now tbh
Have drunk a lot of water today too.
Am I being paranoid ??

have read people say pop a pad on & lie down & when you get up if its waters some may come out. head acts like a plug when you're upright. also the smell, waters are app sweet smelling? hth

When i had my waters broke, to me it felt like when your on period and it just flowed out heverytime i relaxed my muscles down below or moved or sat upright x

It could just be discharge - I know its tmi but lots of pregnant ladies get a noticeable increase.

Felt a definite, strong 'pop' when my waters went. If that helps....

You're doing your pelvic floor exercises, right?

Just spoke to mw and she says it just sounds like wee ! Though anymore and i must go in ! And i must do more pelvic floor - i do a lot i think anyway !
Anyway no more dribbles or anything so i guess this stubborn girlie is on my bladder and quite comfy for the time being!!!
Thanku for ur advice ladies as it was a bit freaky - wasnt sure whether to carry on laughing or cry lol

It does sound like wee, I did something similar. My midwife told me that your waters have a distinctive smell - like wheat so it's easier to distinguish between that and wee.

As long as you are sure it's wee then I say relax and keep an eye on it just in case. And pelvic floor exercise from now on. If you're like I was with my first by 34(ish) week on I had to cross my legs every time I sneeze or laughed really hard because dd loved bouncing on my bladder. Pelvic floor exercise helped some but with baby actually pressing staring on bladder it wasn't enough. Joy.
