    Maybe put a pad on and see if you have any more fluid come out over the next half an hour or so. It could be you waters starting to leak, but because it happened when you coughed it may be that your pelvic floor muscles are a little weak with all the weight and it was just urine. I know I got a bit of a fright earlier this week when I sneezed and had a couple of drops come out... Good luck

    It could be your waters or it could be those pelvic floor muscles not works properly (a little wee escaping). If you aren't sure ring your midwife or doc and ask them what they think.

    Hun just a patch or wet on a pad? It could even be a hindleak - you are full term so I would check in with your care provider and they can do that little strip test to see if it is wee or amniotic fluid.

    Either way, not long now!

    It could be your waters but it could also just be CM. Put a pad on check it in an hour and if it is wet take it to the hospital the midwives can test the fluid to see if it is your waters.
