Just that really. I'm so fed up. Constant trickle doesn't smell like wee, doesn't seem to be coming from the same place wee does, but then I do go and fecking wee and i think I may be imagining it all. Accompanied by crappy braxton hicks and I've really had enough of my body and this pregnancy. Is my bladder really that bad and my vagina really that huge that I'm setting myself and just can't work out where it's coming from?! I'm 34+5 and actually can't get to the maternity hospital until at least the mor information so there isn't much i can do. I'm going to attempt to get back to sleep.
I have it's clear and smells...I'm not really sure! Sweet I guess, it's an odd smell, i cant felt put my finger on it. But it doesn't smell like urine. I've also done the lie down and stand up after 30 minutes test and there was a small trickle after i did that.
Sorry i was pissed off and irrationally annoyed last night. Probably didn't give enough detail. It's very complicated. DC3 was born without water, this time I'm being monitored closely and have suspected I've been leaking since 24 weeks. However there's still enough fluid around the baby. I have another scan on Tuesday and i was in on Thursday and there was plenty of water. I'm having intermittent trickles, i lost alot last night, but this morning its calmed down and I'm back to a 'normal' loss for me. I've been in a couple of times and the midwives have just said it's urine, when the scans show it's actually my fluid. I hate going in just to be told I'm wetting myself, seeing a random on all consultant who says similar, when my consultant believes the same as i do. For some reason I'm having a very slow leak. Anyway, sorry i was rambling last night as dh was fast asleep i might give a call this morning, but it might be best to wait till my consultant and scan on Tuesday.
I just phoned, they said it's probably discharge or urine. i really do give up! I explained that my waters had been reducing on the scans and she said "it would be a non stop trickle, not a stop and start thing, it can't be your waters" they've said that i should call back if my pad is soaking wringing wet, if it's not it won't be my waters...Because they can tell that over the phone. I'm so fed up of it all. I have a scan and consultant on Tuesday anyway so i will wait and see what she says.
The same happened with my son, when i was in labour they couldn't break my waters, they said the bag must be really tough, then he was born and there was no gush, no fluid, no nothing. But still they insist (even though it's exactly the same) that I'm just wetting myself as i don't fit their normal.
This is the thing, my fluid is reduced but still "within normal limits" I'm hoping on Tuesday my consultant will put a proper plan in place. Dh has said that if this one is born without water he'll be making a huge complaint. I'm just sick of being so wet and feeling like I'm wetting myself when I walk.
Er, waters totally CAN be a stop/start kind of thing! Mine went at 37 weeks with ds, but only little by little at first. That because his head was plugging the flow, but if I moved - stood up from lying down for example, or rolled over - his head would briefly move letting a little gush escape, before plugging it back up again!
Epoxy I had something similar, a little gush from time to time that stopped when the baby's head plugged it up again. The amniotic fluid was clear and felt kind of slippery/slightly soapy compared to urine. OP If you think it's amniotic fluid then it probably is, and you should be listened to. Good luck OP!
