    Hi there, I was admitted to hospital, kept in birth suite overnight with the plan to be induced first thing in the morning. Bubs was monitored until midnight and they would be back at 6am to put me back on the ctg for bubs. I spontaneously went into labour at 5am and was continuously monitored throughout labour. Bubs was born healthy.

    Default Potential Hind Water Leak

    @1st timemama how far along were you? Was it a big leak or just a slow one?

    I think I had a small leak at 35 weeks - called the midwives who said not to worry & see my OB the next day as planned. He did a scan and was happy with the amount of fluid around Bub, so said not to worry, he couldn't confirm it was a hind water leak though. At 37 + 1 I had another leak (enough to wet through my pants), had a show and regular contractions started about 15 min later. DD was born 8 hours later. When the midwife inspected the placenta she sad the membranes were very ragged, so I do think the first time was a hind water leak.

    This sounds very much like my first including when I had a leak and when DS was born...a Hind Water leak was never confirmed.

    This time I am currently 31+2 weeks and have had slight leakage over a couple of days mainly when I've been up moving around to much. My OB had a look and couldn't see anything but did a swab to check. He also said that a Hind Water leak can stop and start so if it increases to go back to him/maternity ward.

    My leak was a slow one but green stained as well and I was 39w6d. My son was born on his due date.

    I've had hind water leakages with all three pregnancies. But then I delivered my girls within 48hrs at full term.

    Default Potential Hind Water Leak

    After it was confirmed, I was admitted to hospital and Dd was born the next day via c section at 38+5. They were not willing to induce me due to a big baby and having a previous caesarean.

    ETA- I was given anti biotics upon admission as it was suspected to be a prolonged rupture of membranes (2 or 3 days at least)

    At had a hind water leak at 32 weeks with DD4. Was admitted to maternity for 24 hours for observation then sent home. Had no other leaks and delivered her by c/s at 36 weeks due to other reasons.
