Slow leak?

Just woke up and on my way to the loo I thought I'd wet myself a little from standing up, got to the toilet and did the smallest pee and when I wiped the tissue was sodden with pinky fluid. I had some of this the other day but was reassured it was due to a speculum exam 18 hrs before. I'm now having slight period pains (but I am constipated!) and the pink fluid seems to have stopped now. I thought amniotic fluid was yellowish in colour and if it's bleeding it must only be a tiny amount as it was only slightly pink. Anyone fancy a stab at what this could be?

Correction.... It hasn't stopped, about 10mls of pinky fluid is in my pad now confused

How exciting! With my first child the amniotic fluid was pink tinged (certainly to start with). Worth calling the midwife for!!

Even with such a small amount? I am full term so should I wait till I'm having regular contractions or theres more?

FTM here so I'm pretty much clueless confused

I would definitely give them a ring and see what they say. Sounds like you may soon have a little bundle smile congratulations!

I had this, waters were leaking, definitely call your midwife, I had to be induced as didn't go into labour and there's a risk of infection
