Im 41weeks+1day...ive been feeling leaky,backache/BH/period like cramps and when i bend over my stomach feels rumbly at the top..ive no idea if thats to do with baby being so big or maybe waters are leaking? help!
I was uncertain of whether my waters had gone recently. Midwife advised me to put a pad in and see if it filled up within an hour or two. She also said if you lay down for a bit the waters pool, then ou get a bit of a gush once you get up. The fluid should be clear or ple straw coloured and melts sweet. Brown or green indicates meconium.
I was advised to always contact midwife/labour ward if you suspect waters are leaking, as if they have gone and baby doesn't arrive within the next day or two there is a risk of infection.
I ended up having to go in, they inspected my pad and did a speculum exam to see if they could see the leak (concluded there wasn't one, but was told I was right to call).
Forgot to add that I've been having backache, period like cramps and strong BH on nod off for a week now, so I was really hopeful that it was my waters! No such luck for me though, but I hope your body has more off clue than mine and you are soon enjoying cuddles with your new baby
i feel like im never going to go into labour naturally induced on the 8th..this will be 2nd baby and waters just popped and gushed when i was on the toilet before delivering.had severe urge to push after that..so maybe im just leaking urine...this baby is well down and have to pee so so much lol but still dont get the gurgly squelchy noise at the top of my stomach...
