Hi there, I am 37 weeks pregnant with my second baby.
This morning I got up and all seemed well, went upstairs to have my morning decaf with hubby, probably 20 mins into coffee I ran downstairs to brush my teeth, when I stood up I had a gush of fluid. Quickly went to the bathroom to investigate, there was enough fluid it ran down my leg.
When I was in labor for my first child, the gush was enormous - I immediatley knew what it was - however, after this morning, I've had no more fluid come out? And no contractions.. should I just assume maybe with how far along I am this was just urine? Or should I head to the hospital to be checked out?
I've been researching - and read to lay down for an hour and stand up to see if there was more fluid and I haven't had anything else... the fluid was thin, colorless, and odorless - different from the CM I've been expeirancing.. Please any advice would help..don't want to bother the ER but will definetly go if there is more later - this happened about 2 hours ago - sorry if TMI... figured this was the best place to ask --
