Hello this is my first post but have been reading for a couple of weeks and love it!

I am 40+2 had a sweep at 40wks and around 1am this morning I had a show (I think!) it was like a bit of light brown mucus. At around 3am I woke with a trickle thinking I was wetting myself myself and had a slightly painful contraction. I have tried to sleep but have been getting contractions around 7-8 mins apart lasting around 1min. Every contraction I get more water coming out I can't believe how much there is!! Thing is I'm not sure what to do... Don't really want to wake anyone up as I am coping well with the pains I have a hot water bottle on my back.
When shall I phone the labour ward? Sorry if it sounds like a silly question. Any advice would be great thanks smile

Phone labour ward now for advice if your waters are going as there is infection risk after they have gone (after 24 hours IIRC)

How are you coping with your CX?

Good luck!!!

Ah ok I will do now thank you.

To be honest it's just like a severe period pain in my lower belly...just trying to relax and breathe as I know it's only going to get worse grin

I'm ok thanks just about to go to labour ward as midwife said I should be checked out as my waters have gone but ill more than likely be sent home if I'm not dialating. Ill let you know what happens anyway, hopefully things are progressing grin
