Is this urgent? (TMI and copied from Childbirth thread)

Am assuming nobody else is up right at the moment but am trying to keep myself busy. Am 31+5 with twins, at last 2 dr.'s appts my cervix had shortened to 1 cm (same at both appts so stable after first shortening). Dr said not to worry, but if there were any contractions, to go straight to hosp. Haven't had any contractions as such, but for last few days been "leaking" a bit more than normal (been leaking for some time anyway though cause twin 2 is playing football with my bladder!) and the liquid is clear rather than the normal yellowish of bladder leakage... Was ignoring it, but last night/this morning had a tiny bit of bloody mucous when wiping and on panty liner (sorry if TMI...) and a feeling a bit like mild menstrual cramps. My normal dr. opens at 10 am, it's currently 6.25. Have tried ringing hospital for reassurance but no answer at the moment, though they're meant to be there 24h. Thought about just heading to hosp but since there's every chance I'm just paranoid, reckon I might be better waiting for dr., who'll be open in 3 and a half hours anyway. Anyone got any thoughts?

Thanks, maybe should do that. Am in Germany so no NHS direct or anything. Will try the hosp again now. Bet i'm just being paranoid though...

Hey, thanks for messages. Went into hospital, spent 2 days on drip to stop contraction, got injections to mature babies' lungs and Rosa (4 lb 10) and Astrid (3 lb 11) were born be emergency c-section on 23rd Sept. Have been in hospital with them since then. They're doing really well, have been breathing unaided since the first day and Rosa is now feeding alone too, Astrid still needs a bit of help with a tube but only cause she's so small. Thanks for support, I think we are very lucky with the care we are receiving.
