this is our 3rd dc but every pregnancy has been different...
Im 40+5, yesterday eve i had a big show, after that i kept getting wet knickers, and it felt a little slimey but the wet part soaked thru
late this am it stopped but this evening has started again. I went without knickers on 4 a few mins and it didnt pour or trickle down my legs but was sticky at the tops of my legs, its worse wen im stood up, i dont really notice it much wen im sat/lay down.
if it could b my waters is it an urgent thing i should ring the hospital about (&wot may they do wen i get there)?
Or could it wait until monday morning wen i next c my mw?
i look forward 2 any advice and reading any of ur experiences

Keep an eye on your temperature, don't take a bath, no sex grin
Is baby engaged? If so h/she may be blocking the leak so not much coming out.
Hopefully contractions should follow soon.{grin] grin
Nothing wrong with phoning the midwife for advice, but I am naughty and would wait a couple of days with precautions.

I would tell your midwife as there is a time limit to get things going after the waters break because of the risk of infection - depends where the break is and where the baby's head is positioned as to how it leaks so give them a call as soon as you can and ask
