im nearly 27 weeks pregnant, every time i go to the toilet for a number two, espec if i have to push (again sorry for tmi) i get this cloudy yellow discharge, its usually a little bit, on the tissue. today i went to the loo and didnt have to push, after i had finished i was wiping and this fliud was comming out of me, it was cloudy, kind of like a weed myself, it went all over my hands n on the floor, was this my waters breaking? or was i just leaking wee. i dnt feel any different, no contractions, nothing.
thnx x

If there was that much, then you need to call the delivery suite and get checked out ASAP.

You could have a leak of amniotic fluid. Get yourself checked out.

Like CMOTdibbler says best to call and get checked out, even though it may turn out to be just pee.

Have you had a show yet, anything pinky/bloody/browny/mucousy?

Have you been having a normal healthy pregnancy, any reason to suspect a preterm delivery?

no i havent had a show yet, its happened before but never as much as this, it happened before my 20week scan and when i went for the scan they said my curvix was fully closed so i thought it was just normal. i have had a normal pregnancy, only thing was at 7weeks i had brownish discharge but they couldnt find any reason for this. im really worried

Just to be sure, go and get yourself checked. There is a simple test they can do to see if it is amniotic fluid.

I had leaking fluid in my last pregnancy from an infection (I had a cervical stitch though). It was a bit like you are describing - i.e. it could have been wee, no other symptoms or discharge.

It's probably fine and worst case scenario if it is a leak, lots of rest and water could fix it so all is not lost.

Insist that they test you as they might try and tell you it's just wee, when it might not be.

you absolutely must go in and be checked

it is likely your waters have leaked, but if it has stopped, then it is a hindwater leak, and could well reseal and things will be ok

a gush of fluid like that needs checking

don't worry ! in the absence of any contractions etc, you 'll probably be ok, but you need proper medical advice and checking
