Waters breaking? TMI! This happened to anyone else?

I am 39 + 4 pregnant. I woke up at 2 this morning with water soaking my pjs and trickling out of me. I jumped out of bed and went to loo. Uncontrollable fluid coming out of me, but to make confuse matters I think I also 'activated' bladder muscles!

It didn't last that long but it was a surprise and not really like a wee. I was wearing a pad which was utterly soaked so I put it to one side as I have read on here that it would be a good idea to provide midwife with pad. I cleaned up and got back into bed and then had some period abdo pains/ 15 mins later went for a wee... but eventually went to sleep.

Nothing at all has happened this morning and I checked pad -smelled it. Rather grimly it smells of normal urine, however my pjs and knickers are odourless despite being soaked.

I am seeing midwife today and am pretty sure they are going to tell me I wet myself. I am not in the habit of this happening during pregnancy, it will be a first, and I can't shake the feeling that it was more than that.

Has this happened to anyone else? Just losing 'some waters'? Or have I just pissed the bed?!

Take your pad off and have just your pants on, and see if you are still leaking,

It could be either, either way good luck, and make sure you have a mattress cover.

Sounds like your Waters have gone or partly gone. This happened pretty much the same with ds3 but not all of the Waters came out as his head moved and plugged me up again so to speak. Good luck wink

My waters partly went when I was in labour, then the rest slowly trickled out until they had to be broken.

I saw two midwives. One thinks some of my waters have gone, the other not so sure and has told me to wear a pad and see her again in two days. Nothing else has happened since.

Starting to wonder if it was a big uncontrollable wee!
