dont worry about feeling paranoid, you are overdue so it will happen soon. the hospital can check the fluid to see if its fluid or urine. i had same with my 3rd son started leaking fluid an hour later my waters broke and babe was born shortly after. give your midwife a call and let her know whats going on she may visit you at home to examine you. do you have any pain even the slightest niggle?
ring midwife and explain whats happening if your getting negative feedback from midwife exagerate the pain so she can advise what to do, she may visit you at home to do a examination or advise to go and be checked at hospital, at least make them aware so they can be ready for you.
