Anyone feel like they're leaking fluid?

I'm 36 weeks today, due July 10. I've been feeling leaky for about a week now; I went to L&D Saturday night for contractions, and they checked me for fluids and said ti was negative. I've been dischargy the whole time (TMI), but this feels more like liquid. Anyone else feel like this?

if it's just when you walk around and stand up that you feel like you are leaking, i would go in to L&D or to your doc office and get them to swab for it again. If it's when you sneeze or cough, it's just pee and you have some incontinence (super common at the end). If it's goopy, perhaps you are just loosing your plug piece by piece, also very common at the end.
My water broke with my first, but not all the way. I had a high tear (towards my ribcage) and I would leak a little fluid at a time. They swabbed me after I called and said I thought I may have ruptured and the next day, my first was born. Once your water breaks, most doctors will want you tohave the baby within 24- 48 hours due to risk of infection, so if you think it did, get it checked.

I know- they're HUGE. I have some from my last babies that I took from the hospital, just in case my water breaks at home ;)

Kaitlin, yes, daily. I'm just glad we're getting close to the end result of babiness! Then we get to wear big pads while we recover. :/

have you guys been wearing pantyliners during this pregnancy? I've been wearing them since the beginning and I feel like I go through a few each day- maybe three or four, depending. Sigh. ;)

The nurse at the hospital told me, when I got swabbed for the same thing, that it's possible the baby is just pushing out a drop or two of pee at a time so I don't even notice it. That made sense to me, because she's very active in there.

Exactly the same and I am due the same day as u also! Mine has been thick until now it is like water! I notice a lot of it in the mornings and it continues throughout the day! This is my 2 child.

Thanks! I just don't want to be leaking fluid and cause the baby any stress =/ I never dilate with my contractions, so they never keep me when I go in. Ugh.

:( Well, you're almost there- maybe you'll just go early. Hope it gets better!

I was swabbed Saturday night and they said it hadn't broken. It is when I'm standing or walking, and it's not goopy. I lost my plug and fully broke my water with my first; I haven't noticed a plug this time around. When I first felt the leaky feeling, that's what I thought it was...but when I check my panties, it feels wet...like sweaty, but I'm not. I haven't sneeze-peed, nor did I with my first...I get close, especially when he jabs me, but nothing's ever come out. I don't think it's pee...but the doc's keep telling me it's probably a different viscosity of discharge. =/
