im 39+5 and got a browny straw coloured discharge??? any ideas?

PinkTulips Fri 18-Jul-08 00:05:54

waters breaking darling grin

ring the maternity unit and ask them when you should go in

MmeLindt Fri 18-Jul-08 00:06:48

More of a smear or a whooosh?

mydisguise Fri 18-Jul-08 00:06:56

not really leaking though, its just like the last few days of period when it goes light brown colour

PinkTulips Fri 18-Jul-08 00:09:24

hmm, when you said straw coloured it sounded like waters but browny blood more like a show.

can be ages after a show before anything happens.

MmeLindt Fri 18-Jul-08 00:10:32

A show perhaps?

A sign that you could be having a baby sometime soon.

Never had one myself, but someone more knowledgable will be along shortly

mmmm maybe it is a show... every time i change my panty liner theres more of it the next time i go to the loo. dont think its blood?

mydisguise Fri 18-Jul-08 00:13:14

i didnt have a show with my 1st, with my 2nd it was a huge loss of mucus with bloody streaks... so this is something new to me

Posted on your other thread, it sounds like a show but you're obviously worried about it and probably won't rest very well until it's checked out.

Pop down to your labour ward and they'll probably be able to tell you what it is within 5minutes! Keep your pad on, they will want to see it (isn't childbirth so dignified? grin).

PinkTulips Fri 18-Jul-08 00:15:56

well brown blood is old blood so i wouldn't worry too much. it certainly just sounds like things loosening up and preparing for labour

MmeLindt Fri 18-Jul-08 00:18:10

Certainly sounds like a show, but if you are worried, then do as Ewe suggested and get yourself down to the maternity unit.

Hope you get some sleep, good luck.

Your gonna have your baby soon.

mydisguise Fri 18-Jul-08 19:37:27

gothicmama Fri 18-Jul-08 19:39:57

mydisguise Fri 18-Jul-08 19:41:34

MmeLindt Fri 18-Jul-08 22:45:52

Sounds promising. I hope you have your bag packed.

mydisguise Sat 19-Jul-08 09:17:38
