could you be leaking anmiotic fluid? prob worth a call to midwife, they might want to check. if waters burst and labour doesn't start they induce after a while (a day or two, i think it varies). this happened to me with dd1.
good luck!

Pop a pad on and give the midwives a call. They'll want you to confirm what the fluid looks like. Dont worry - I had similar when overdue too and it was fine.

I had something similar to this. I heard a strange noise the night after I had a show, and the next day every time I went to the loo I was a little damp and there was this strange slightly chemically smell. But because of the show I was using sanitary towels for the first time in years in case my waters broke, and I thought the smell was them.
I now realise my waters had broken, but just trickling, and that's what the smell was!
That night - bang on midnight - a definate 'pop' and gush. And dd was born 10.50 am.

So, I could be wrong, but I think your waters might have broken and the baby has almost but not quite plugged the gap.

ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh maaaaaaaaaaaaan!!!!

goin to put a pad on, its jus DAMP! i knw i havent peed myself, ohhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!

( slightly panicking)

i suppose to doesnt help that all my cotton pants are bright colours and i cnt actually tell wha colour it is- does have a strange smell to it tho..


should i go have a shower first? my hair is super greasy!

DownyEmerald Wed 23-Jul-08 15:14:20

Yep - shower and shave legs, armpits, any other bits, wash hair.
It will help during that small time when you still have some sense of decorum.
That small time doesn't last long!
And ring the midwife!

could it b my waters?
coz im damp...

I think it's definately worth ringing the midwife - especially if there is a new smell, it's likely to be amniotic fluid.

You're 41 weeks - it's going to happen sooner or later!

Mine did this aswell and everyone thought I was just peeing myself angry until midwife said it was sactually my waters trickling grin

Hope all goes well don't panic

LackaDAISYcal Wed 23-Jul-08 16:10:22

could be your hindwaters leaking......keep this bumped for lulu or lars or hertsnessex or other lovely doula types.

Good Luck smile

this happened to me, four hours later i had a baby. go get a shower and wash your hair now !

DownyEmerald Wed 23-Jul-08 16:56:21

Ooh, good luck, and let us know!

laura325630 Wed 23-Jul-08 17:13:51

My waters started leaking the day before I went into labour. I knew it wasnt pee as it smelt sweet! Best to phone the labour and make sure you have a pad in so they can check it. I was monitored for half an hour then sent home and told I should go into labour within 24 hours - I did!!!

Good luck xx
