Is it psbl to have labour pains n amniotic fluid leakage n still cervix is not dilated..38 weeks pregnant?

Your doctor can do an exam to see if you are really leaking amniotic fluid or if it is something else like urine or a heavy vaginal discharge. Best wishes! ...Read more

Still some time : With your first pregnancy, it is quite likely that you will carry to 40 wks or even later. 1 cm dilated means you've made some progress and your cervix is starting to soften, but the process to go into active labor can still be weeks away. Call your provider if you have contractions every 5 minutes for an hour long, or any bleeding, or decreased fetal movement. Congrats on your upcoming arrival! ...Read more
