What did I just do?

I'm 40 years old and I have lady parts.
I was at a barbecue the other night and decided to get on my friend's trampoline with their kids. After a bit of pretty rigorous jumping I started to feel a nice warm feeling between my legs. I have a Mirena IUD and I've gotten used to a little extra discharge and moisture, so I didn't think too much of it. But when I got off the trampoline a few minutes later, I was obviously soaked, though at least I had dark jeans on and could get to the bathroom. I must have let loose almost a quarter cup of ... liquid. Water? It didn't smell like pee, nor did it smell like the sometimes not-nice Mirena discharge. Just a bunch of water.
IKYANMgyno but, what the hell? I'm normal weight, athletic, and had no other indications I've been carrying around little extra teacups of water. I've never been pregnant, never had any bladder issues, not sexually active, but do have a tennis ball-sized fibroid on one side, which has been aching a bit since this happened. The Mirena has totally stopped my periods (I L O V E I T S O M U C H) so there's been none of that going on anymore, e.g. no bloating or back pain. Just a few weeks ago I went in for a pap smear and ultrasound to check the size of the fibroid, and it has apparently doubled in size since I had the Mirena installed two years ago, but other than that everything looked good. Before the Mirena it hurt constantly, but now it doesn't. I felt around in my vagina and cervix and everybody seems to be at their stations.
Should I be worried? With the insurance I have it would cost me several hundred dollars to go back to my gynecologist, and I'm not sure if I'm overreacting.
