So this morning while driving to work I felt a gush of warm liquid. It really didnt feel like I had peed, it surprised me because I didn't even feel the need to pee. And I have been cramping since last night, but I thought it was gastro related. So to be safe I dropped by the midwife today. She ran a ferning test, and my waters are still intact...so I guess it was pee. So weird though. She attributed the cramping to my being "severely dehydrated." I have no idea how thats even possible. Ask my co-workers...I drink water constantly.
Im perplexed. All I know is that I do feel him rather low today and my belly looks way bigger. I had a 4lb weight gain this week, so I guess he is just running out of room and into my bladder. Fun stuff.
Oh man, that sucks!!! That happened to a friend of mine too. She thought her water broke, so she went to the hospital, only to find out that she just peed.
On the other hand, I'm glad that it was just pee and you're not in labor. Your little guy needs to cook for a while longer. Having the kiddo on your bladder is no barrel of monkeys though. Like I said, I have the same thing and it's sooooo uncomfortable when I have to get up and walk around. It almost makes me want to walk on my tippy toes, although I seriously don't know what that would do other than make me look even sillier and more awkward. LOL

Got an opinion? We've got a board! Come join us for some lively debate on the Face Off! Debate Arena board.
I hate when that happens. Happy news is your water is still intact and only a few more weeks left...if thats any consolation.
I feel like i'm starting to pee my pants when I sneeze or cough really hard. But it's not enough for me to feel like I need to wear a panty liner. Shrugs!
Oh man - glad everything is okay. I posted this already, but when I got into the truck yesterday I had this HUGE gush of liquid. I rushed home and into the bathroom and saw this tiny spot on my underwear. I was perplexed as I FELT something huge, but it was just this tiny spot. I still don't know what it was. Didn't smell like pee. I dunno. Weird preggo liquid lol
Im glad everything is okay. I definitely know what its like with the peeing thing. I feel like my baby is standing on my bladder all the time. And I constantly have been peeing on myself when I cough and sneeze. lol
