the water just came out clear with no colour or smell (it was small amount) but im going into hosp on Monday to get the baby to turn around as its breech.

i thought the water only leaked when babys is engaged....or was it summat else?

I would go to the hospital today to make sure that everything is alright.

water can leak before baby is engaged

are you sure it is amniotic fluid? not wee or discharge?

best to be checked out if your waters may have leaked.

put a pad on and see if anything is still leaking, amniotic fluid smells and looks different to wee

biglips Thu 28-Aug-08 15:23:44

not wee as no smell and not discharge cos it was like water.

it just came out when i wasnt expecting it. (i was getting dressed this morning) so its best to go to the hosp today?

belgo Thu 28-Aug-08 15:24:41

I think so, (not a midwife btw!)considering the baby is breech.

lulumama Thu 28-Aug-08 15:26:56

is it still leaking? it is unlikely to be your forewaters breaking as they tend to go with a big gush. it could be a hindwater leak, but all the same you need to be checked out

give hospital a call, they will advise you

I was told that if there was any suspect leak, to go in just to make sure.
Lulu's right, give them a call and see what they say.

biglips Thu 28-Aug-08 15:36:12

lulumama Thu 28-Aug-08 15:50:54

i rang and they asked me questions and asked me if my waters had gone but i said i dont know (As with my DD i was induced) so they told me to put a towel on and keep an close eye on it, if any more water then go in the hosp. They have put the dets on my record of this phone convo incase anything happens.

biglips Thu 28-Aug-08 18:11:29

i had a wee this morning and 10 mins later the water gushed out suddenly. bathwater - i last had a bath on Monday if thats what you meant.

biglips Thu 28-Aug-08 18:25:32

oh and i did mentioned that the baby is breech and i will be going in the hosp on Monday.

eandz Thu 28-Aug-08 18:30:42

i've been worried about you biglips. i'll keep an eye on this thread as well.

biglips Thu 28-Aug-08 18:31:20

smile thanks and keep away from the carrot cake too!! wink

lulumama Thu 28-Aug-08 18:42:48

if you have stopped leaking then don;t panic.. keep an eye on it.. use a maternity pad as stuff does not soak in and disappear immediately as with those dry weave regular sanitary pads

My waters never broke in a gush, I had two leaks, and the MWs talked about hindwaters (and the usual you must have wet yourself blah blah) yet when I was scanned the forewaters had all gone - you should definitely call them biglips, hope it goes ok.

biglips Thu 28-Aug-08 19:40:43

eek!..shock

ooh im panicking now!!

ive been dry since ive put my mat towel on.

biglips Fri 29-Aug-08 14:13:36

belgo Fri 29-Aug-08 14:14:38
