User:Hi Dr.XXX this is Mrs.XXXXX
User:I am 23 weeks pregnant and this is my second pregnancy. 1 week back i had an anomaly scan and the results came to be normal.
User:The problem is today morning i felt like passing urine and went to urinate.later again after 15 min i felt like passing urine and also felt like baby is coming out and passed only little amount of urine with little pain.this continued for every 10min for about 40 min.
User:After that i had a hard stool and then felt like everything is fine.later i passed urine after 1 and half hour and felt like something is open down.but i didnt have the earlier situation of pain and frequent urination.what does this indicate?is there any danger to the baby ? is my amniotic fluid oozing out?
Doctor:you need not worry about that
Doctor:urine frequency and urgency is common during pregnancy
User:but for every 10min i felt like passing urine and only few drops with a little pain
Doctor:did u have any burning sensation ?
Doctor:any fever
User:little bit of burning sensation but no fever
Doctor:you may be having a urine infection or it could be just increased frequency
Doctor:i would advice you to keep a hot water bag, on the lower abdomen for some time
Doctor:drink much fluids , like water and cranberry juice
Doctor:it will reduce the sensation of burning
Doctor:also avoid intercouse, for a few days
User:actualy during my first delivery(vainal) in the 34 week early in the morning i felt like passing urine and within 5 min again i felt the same and couldnt even wait till i reach bathroom.Then ny mom told probably ur amniotic fluid is oozing out and lat us consult doctor
User:doctor said its true and she injected some hormone and the pains started and had vaginal delivery
User:is this the same now?
User:i am worried because i am still in 24th week
Doctor:it is less likely
Doctor:when the amniotic membrane breaks, there is gush of warm water rushing ,
Doctor:this is not possible before 28 weeks
User:my cervical length measures 38mm(TA) in my last week scan
Doctor:and amniotic fluid comes out of the vagina
Doctor:and not from your urethra (where u urinate )
User:but during my earlier pregnancy i had the same situation for which i was injected some hormone for delivery?
Doctor:oh, that was oxitocin , used to induce a delivery
Doctor:since your amniotic membrane had broken, it was induced to start a delivery
