I am 3cm and thanks to irritable uterus have been gettin contractions since 36 weeks after a preterm labour scare at 33-34 weeks. Because of this I have had so many false alarms but....
I am dilating ( but as of yesterday not very well effaced) had an impressive bloody show yesterday after a stretch and sweep Thursday. And while currently doing the whole walk the baby out thing at the local shopping centre just felt a trickle of something down my leg. Was standing in queue for a coffee at the time so am siting here having my coffee before I go and check things out and kinda hoping there is more to come but trying not to get to excited. I mean I am in qld so it's hot and humid but I am in an air conditioned shopping centre so I shouldn't be swearing that much right??
One excited and over it mummy to be...

EXCITING!!! Good luck, hopefully things are really starting to kick into action.

Ooh, how exciting! I hope it isn't just sweat (it's not that hot in Qld is it?!?! ).
All the best, and make sure you update!

today is one of the much cooler days in QLD (at least where I am - Its raining after a about 40 or so days with no rain).
Fingers crossed OP. All the best.

Still no closer to figureing it out. Hopped up after coffee and undies wet, dress damp, one more tiny trickle but nothing since. Have popped a pad on but not much since. Yes here it is that hot ( well very humid) But i was in the air-con heaven of the shopping centre. Now i am back home so who knows whether it is sweat or not. I am not ringing the hospital because its pointless doing an amniosure. ( hubby and i DTD for the first time in weeks this morning and i know that the evidence of that can change the outcome of that test)
AARRRRGGGHHH i hate this waiting and not knowing.

Just wanted to say that you should definitely call your hospital/midwives to let them know. I had the same thing at 39 weeks (hindwater leak) and had to be admitted for IV antibiotics to protect the baby from infection. With no sign of labour, they induced me 2 days later. Good luck OP!

I think if you and DH DTD this morning, then what you felt was probably residual.
If it is you waters, your pad would be damp.

If it is a hindwater leak your pad won't necessarily be damp. Mine was just like yours, a trickle that was enough to wet a patch on my undies and my pants. I put a pad in that day - nothing. Then the next morning when I stood up the exact same thing happened and again there was nothing else. When I rang the hospital on the 2nd morning it happened and they said to come in they did a VE and got me to cough and sure enough it tested positive for amniotic fluid. Better safe than sorry

This reminds me of meeting a friend for a cuppa when we were both pregnant with our now 8 y/os! She'd had a stretch and sweep done a few days before. We'd just got out lunch and she said, I'm so sorry, can you ring my husband, my waters just broke! We had to get towels from the cafe! VERY EXCITING MOMENT!
