36 weeks pregnant with third child and leaking a whitish colored to clear fluid sometimes worse than others and will be a gush that will go all the way through and be noticable on outside of pants also mild cramping, feeling nausas, and havent sleep very good in 2 nights could labor be near?
Welcome to the ehealthforum. I am glad to help you out. The possibility of this fluid being the amniotic fluid also canât be ruled out as you near term pregnant and the rupture of the amniotic membranes is always a possibility.
The other symptoms are increased contractions (come at regular intervals, do not decrease with change in posture and last about 30-70 seconds) and sometimes a bloody show due to passing of the cervical mucus plug.
I would suggest you to contact your gynecologist immediately and get a pelvic examination done to clear the status of the cervix (dilatation and effacement) and the position of the head. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
