So, I had my 37 week check up today. Since my doc was "on call" my appointment was with another doc. She guestimates baby to be upper 6's, lower 7's on weight (pounds). She verified that baby was head down with a real quick, short span u/s. I'm GBS negative.
When she asked if I've had any extra leaking or anything, I said not that I've noticed.
First off... I have a TON of discharge. I change my panty liner at least 4 times a day. But it's lotiony and white. With this loads of discharge, I occasionally feel it "leaking" out. I'm always monitoring the consistency of it and two weeks ago my doc did the litmus strip test to make sure I wasn't leaking amnio fluid.
Well, today I left there with no internal or anything cause she didn't want to aggravate my cervix.
After I left the doc's I had lunch with my mom and mentioned a very strong, sharp pain I had in my upper front uterine area last night when I got up from the couch. I figured it was the baby getting aggressive with me. The pain lasted a good 30 seconds or so and caused me to stop moving and "brace" and breathe. It was VERY localized. I thought about the possibility of it being a minor placenta abruption (I have an anterior placenta), and watched for signs of bleeding, both in my discharge and in bruising in my skin where it happened. None whatsoever. No increase in BH, no changes otherwise.
Fast forward. Now I have had a few BH's but haven't timed them. I have had quite a bit more than yesterday. I feel "wet" like I've worked up a sweat. My undies are NOT damp (other than the lotiony discharge) but I can "push" liquid out of me (and no, it's not pee). I have a "mustier" smell when I feel the small tiny little not quite gushes happen.
Baby is moving A LOT today and when baby moves, I can feel a little more trickle.
Would you say this is possibly amnio fluid? Do you think the pain I had happen last night was a "rupture" or a "tear" happening?
Should I go in and have it tested? Do you think they'd put a timer on my delivery if it WAS amnio fluid? It's a birthing center, but it's the hospital's L&D.
I'm torn. But my next appointment isn't until Thursday. :confused:
What would you do?
