love the pics. You have such a cute belly and Grace is adorable!
BTW I had the same thing going on so I went in. No fluids, but they said that I had a lot of bacteria, so hopefully its nothing for you but it never hurts to get checked.

Tiff, thanks for encouraging me. I will call in the morning if I have another feeling of a gush. I tried coughing for a bit to see if anything came out and didn't feel anything. Other ladies on my April board said that was a good indication that it's just watery discharge. But yeah, it's better to test and know.
As for trying to get rid of GBS, I haven't tried. Maybe next time. There's just been too many other things going on anyway. With Grace it ended up not mattering too much since I was puking and getting dehydrated, I had to have an IV anyway. I know the antibiotics aren't the best and I would like to avoid those. But yeah... haven't done anything about it yet.
I hope it's just a bit of discharge like you mentioned and not amniotic fluid. KUP tomorrow!
I was GBS+ with Olivia. I was tested at 36 weeks, found out I was positive at 38 weeks and had her 3 days later...no time to do anything to fix the issue! The IV wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be actually. I ended up having the IV in my hand because the best vein was there. At first I thought that was a bad idea, but it was actuallly better than my elbow area because I was able to labor in the tub and just keep that hand out of the water. If it had been my elbow area it would have been much harder to keep out of the water.

Pretty sure it's just discharge. I haven't had it in about 24 hours. After laying down to sleep and getting up, I didn't have it. I was told it would pool up and trickle/gush down if it was amniotic fluid. So that's a good sign. BUT! If I do feel it today, I will call in for sure.
You can buy Ph paper at the store if you just want to reassure yourself!

Yeah I didn't know you could buy pH paper either! Hmmm interesting!
I haven't had any leaky feeling today but after talking to another mama and hearing one of her stories, I am going to call today. Better safe than sorry, right? I'm pretty sure it's just discharge. But I just don't know for sure. So yeah... we'll see what they say.
Thanks for your encouragement here too.
I did the same thing with both of my pregnancy's. The last 2 weeks I have so much discharge that I can easily soak a pair of undies in 6-12 hours. My first was worse because I had yeast infection, which causes you to have an increased amount of discharge. So if you go in maybe have them check for that, and if you do have a yeast infection go for the pill rather than the creams. It is soooo much cheaper and works 100x better.
