Slow leak ?

Has anyone ever had a slow leak in their water ? && if so what was your experience ? I was told a week ago that my water bag was bulging && would probably break . I've been in early labor since last Thursday && this morning while I was sleeping I had a small trickle of something run down my leg . I jumped out of bed thinking I was peeing myself but whatever was leaking was clear && (yes gross) but I did a smell test && it was odorless . I brushed it off because in my mind that's not what your water breaking is like . Then I ended up have sex && ever since I keep having something leak which doesn't look/smell like semen && its been a good 4 hours since I had intercourse && I keep having this thin watery (still clear && odorless) discharge leak down my legs . Could this be my water or just weird pregnancy discharge ? I would call my doctor but they're so rude to me when I call (probably because I've called 3 times in the past week thinking im in active labor and not just early labor) . So I'd rather get some advice && input before I go bugging my doctor .

I would say it sounds like your water. Call or go get checked.

That is definitely your water breaking! It can break with a slow leak or a big gush. But the slow leak is more common! With you having sex you'll probably go into labor anytime. I would go get it checked and you'll probably be admitted! Once your water breaks they have about 24 hrs to deliver the baby.

The same exact thing happened to me with my son. It was my water, I wanted about 7-8 hours before going in and they had to put me on strong antibiotics to make sure me and the baby would be fine. I would go to L&D just to be safe. Good luck

I read online to lay down for half an hour with dry panties on && if its a leak it will pool in your vagina then soak your undies when you get up . Well I tried that && my panties are dry so should I just say its discharge && not call the doctor ?
