I'm trying to figure out if I'm leaking fluid here....what fun on Xmas eve! I woke up this morning at 6:30am to a small gush, and some clear mucus. Then, during the day, I've had several more small gushes. Nothing major, but enough to get things yucky! It's clear for sure, but I'm not convinced it's my water breaking.
My water broke pre-labor with my first two....and it was obvious. A 'pop' feeling and then tons of fluid! This is totally different. And no contractions, either. I'm just not sure what to do. Baby is moving fine. My m/w is an hour away, and, of course, it's Xmas eve! I don't want to be in labor today!
There is a hospital closer, and I've thought about going there to check, but I feel like if it is my water,, they will want to keep me and put me on pitocin.....something I am NOT willing to do (pitocin or birth here in town). If I call my m/w, I'm not sure what they would tell me, other than to get checked. I don't want to drive an hour to be told I'm peeing on myself, or, again, if it is my water, be told I have to stay, or just to go back home and wait (since I'm doing that anyways). What should I do?
How long is it safe to have a small leak? I'm GBS negative, so I'm not panicked, but I do want to be safe. I guess I should call....I think I'm just in denial. I want to have Xmas eve and morning with my family. What timing!
