Arggghhh! I really don't know what to do, with my first pregnancy I noticed a trickle of fluid down my leg, I was 40 weeks and I called my midwife and she said don't worry I have probably just wet my self a bit... (Very embarrassed!) I didn't think anything more of it and it didn't happen again. When I eventually had her 2 weeks later they had to break my waters and noticed an offensive smell so they sent a sample off and it came back that the waters were infected. I am not sure what caused this but as far as the midwives, doctors and I are concerned this can only happen if the membranes have broken or there was a leak.
Anyway this pregnancy, my knickers were very wet on 1 occasion and I noticed again a small trickle of fluid. I called the hospital and again they just said I would have known if it was my waters as I am only 30 weeks, they wouldn't even see me.
I am worried because they say that if there was an infection you would have high temp, there would be a funny smell and you would feel ill... I had non of this when when I had an infection.
What should I do? If I leave it and there was a leak and an infection then I still have 10 weeks for it fester but at the same time they wouldn't see me!
Please help. X
