Daughter is 36 weeks along and thought her water broke, but the hospital sent her home saying there wasn't ambeontic (sp?) fluid present. What was the fluid if not her water breaking? How close is she to going into labor?

Daughter is 36 weeks along and thought her water broke, but the hospital sent her home saying there wasn't ambeontic (sp?) fluid present. What was the fluid if not her water breaking? How close is she to going into labor?

Hello. : Hello. They check the fluid to see if there is ferning (cystallization pattern) which would be present if your daughter had a release of amniotic fluid. If that was absent, I am wondering if the fluid was urine? I really don't have a way to know when she will go into labor. Congratulations on the pending birth of you grandchild. Take care. ...Read more

It is normal to pass this as your cervix opens. Many people will also leak small amounts of urine. If you are not sure though you should be evaluated by your doctor. ...Read more

How can I know for sure if my water broke?

Tests: Unless its obvious, there really isn't a good way to know at home unless you have a midwife who can run some tests. If you go to the hospital, there are several tests that can be done to know if your water is really broken.

After that point, it is still a problem in need of urgent management in the hospital, however you should expect great outcomes for mom and baby with proper care and reasonably good luck! go to the hospital immediately for urgent care. ...Read more

Can you still feel if your water broke during the shower? Asap plzz

Can you still feel if your water broke during the shower? Asap plzz

Depends...: If your water breaks as a gush of about a quart of fluid, you'll notice. If it's a leak, you might not. But the leak will likely keep on trickling. The real key to this question is: how far along in your pregnancy are you? If you are pre-term, i.e., less than 37 weeks, call your doctor. If at term, see what develops. Likely, you'll start having contractions and be on your way soon. Good luck. Lg. ...Read more

How do you know for sure that your water broke, can it happen before you have any pain?

How do you know for sure that your water broke, can it happen before you have any pain?

Yes it can.: Prelabor rupture of membranes is not rare and occurs pretty much without any warning or pain; a large gush of fluid (usually clear with a yellow tinge similar to dilute urine) wets your underwear and drips to the floor. It is usually mistaken for urinary incontinence episode, which is also not rare with advanced pregnancy. An examination by your obstetrician in the er will tell one way or another. ...Read more
