Re: Leaking fluid!

At 35 weeks with my first, I thought my water broke and I was leaking fluids. Turns out it was just really excessive vaginal discharge. I was so convinced that the military hospital was wrong I even went to the civilian hospital off post as soon as we left the first one to confirm.

My sister on the other hand had her water break and it was hours before she ever felt a contraction. They wound up giving her a pitocin drip to get the labor started. To my understanding you need to go in though and see if it is amniotic fluid or not because going longer than 24 hrs with the sac broken has the potential to lead to infection and needs to be monitored.

Good luck Mama!
