Ok, I KNOW I did NOT pee my pants (lol) But my underwear are extremely wet. It doesnt smell like urine it kind of smells sweet-ish, I put on a pad and laid down im a little "damp". but I feel a constant trickle. Today is my last day at work and Im not sure if I should call off or go in. My midwife told me that with sweeping my membranes I could have more discharge, but a constant trickle of discharge? What should I do?
I would call your midwife first but she will probably want you to come in to check and make sure it's your amniotic fluid. If it's a constant "trickle" then it sounds like that's what it is. Especially since you said it smells sweet. Discharge doesn't constantly trickle though.
Basically, for me anyway, it felt like I was peeing my pants but when I would use the muscles that stop you from peeing(kegals), it still kept coming out...it's very weird sensation. I hope that it is your water! Good luck, KUP!!!
Also with membrane sweeping, the discharge you would be having from that would be more mucus-like, not watery, in my experience anyway...
they want me to go in but im not having any contractions right now, so im just going to go to work for a little bit, if i have contractions or if the leaking doesnt stop then im going into L&D ill text my ddb Ashley (midnightdreams86) and Keep everyone posted, The midwife said she's convinced ill have the baby soon, so Im hoping work will help push me into labor
sounds like its your water! i really hope so! your crazy going into work id call out and walk around the house or do something else while waiting for a bit. however if it is your water you shouldnt wait to long. you should really go in and get checked.
