i am having braxton hicks every 4-10 minutes this morning and have had them over the last few days but have started timing them just to see how many i am having in an hour, In the last hour i have had 11 contractions. i am only 22 weeks so if this is preterm labour this is a major prob! i am also getting watery discharge down there - it came on yesterday, and last night had to change pants in he night as was wet, i have smelled it and smells "clean" i think if it was urine it wouldnt smell so "nice" sorry its a bit mad describing my discharge as nice smelling lol.
If i ring the midwife and she says chill out you re panicing for nothing i will not be relived and if she says come in and be tested for fluid leaking and monitoring of contractions i will be freaked out. if i do go in and watery discharge stops and contractions stop, midwifes will think i am a paranoid nutter, especially because this is not my first baby.
does anyone thing these symtoms are normal and should i stop panicing and chill, or shall i call the midwife anyway?
Virtual Fairy - if it was me I would definitely ring the midwife for advice. I never had braxton hicks that I was aware of and my waters were broken during labour so I can't comment from experience but if your wetness isn't urine I would definitely get it checked out NOW!
