Possible cause and action Your waters may have broken. However, a slight leakage may be urine. Put a sanitary pad on, and speak to your doctor or midwife. He or she will probably advise you to go to hospital for monitoring.

Possible cause You have probably had a "show", in which the small plug of mucus sealing the lower end of your cervix comes away. This may mean that you are going into labour, although the "show" may be seen several days before labour starts.

action Wait until you start having regular, painful contractions or your waters break before calling your doctor or midwife. He or she will advise you on when to go to hospital.

Possible cause and action The contractions are probably Braxton-Hicks contractions (normal tightening of the uterus in practice for labour). Consult your doctor or midwife if they become regular or painful.
