Yesterday (and again last night and today) I was having stronger contractions on and off, but no consistent pattern whatsoever.

At one point I felt wet and checked my underwear - there was a dollar-sized amount of wetness that went through to my pants. I felt like my bladder was empty prior to this.

Last night, I had some additional wetness in the middle of the night, and again this morning. It's not discharge FWIW - it's clear liquid and doesn't look at all like the discharge when I wipe (lots of egg-white looking mucus with flecks/pieces of old blood in it).

So is it typical to pee when you're having contractions like that? The only time I would leak during pregnancy was when I sneezed or coughed, and it was the size of a quarter. Never more than that.

Certainly not asking for anyone to tell me if my water is leaking, but just curious if the contractions could be making me pee. I really don't want to be an alarmist and call the midwife again...I feel dumb!

It really could be either or. This late in pregnancy it is so hard to tell when you aren't sure. Just yesterday I went to wipe and peed on my hand. By all counts, I had emptied my bladder, so when my hand ended up wet…I got really excited, but when I smelled it (gross, I know), it was urine. I think the biggest factor is if it keeps on happening, constantly.

Could totally be either urine or amniotic fluid at this point. Only sure way to tell is smell it

I had a slow leak with my first. I was wet a little here a little there. They sent me home and I came back two days later positive it was fluid and I ended up with an infection because they didn't check to make sure. I'd let ur doc know !
