Hello, I am hoping someone has had a similar experience to me and can help put my mind at ease. Yesterday morning (at 37 weeks & 5 days) I had a little gush after coming out of the shower. I wasn't 100% sure it was my waters but I had been to the toilet before my shower and the water on the floor was clear. Called my husband in to help check (lovely!), it was a different smell and colour so we decided to call the midwife after we got dressed. From then on I put a pad on a had several leaks, again, tried to make sure it was definitely waters! Midwife came over and checked my blood pressure and baby's heartbeat and that the head was engaged. Called the hospital and they told me to wait for contractions. So we went on walks, bounced on the ball, etc but nothing happened.
Last night didn't get much sleep as I started getting paranoid about baby, usually it is really active but wasn't it's usual self, could still feel movement but not as much. A different Midwife came today and checked me and baby, she said baby seems happy, heartbeat is strong, and she said she could tell my waters had gone because I was 'all baby'. She said the difference in movement was likely to be due to the fact there is less waters around the little one now but I'm still to keep an eye on it. Again spent today walking, bouncing and resting (due to lack of sleep last night!).
It's now been 30 hours since my waters broke and no contractions. Had a sore back and period type aches but nothing that feels remotely like what I imagine contractions to feel like. Getting a bit down and impatient. Anyone else been through something similar?
