Did my water break?

So it's 3am, everyone in my house is asleep and have to wake up for work at 5 so I'd much rather not wake them all with a false alarm on a Monday. I'm 38+5 today. At 2:10ish I woke up to pee and then went back to sleep. At 2:45 I had a minor pain that woke me and all of a sudden something was leaking out of me(tmi sorry) but I ran to the bathroom which is like 5 feet from my room and by the time I got there, I had to change pants. This has now happened 3 times in the last half hour, I'm in my third set of PJs... If I'm having contractions, they are really mild kinda like needing to pass gas. I've smelled the fluid everytime and it has no odor or color at all, but feels kinda slimy... I'm not sure what to do right now.

  • That sounds like your water broke to me. Call your doc and have them check! Good luck!

  • If you have had to change your pants 3 times in a matter of 30 minutes you need to be calling your doctor.....

  • If you haven't already, please call your doctor. He / She is the only one who can tell you for sure.

  • Calling your Dr is useless cause they can't tell you if your water broke or if you're peeing yourself. Go to Labor and Delivery. They can test the fluid.

  • Hope it all worked out.  Would also have recommended to call your doc.
