I thought my water broke/was leaking this morning...
 
Went to the hospital, got monitored and they sent me home. My water didn't break or leak. It never broke with my first child so I don't know what to expect if it does.
I've been having contractions on & off all day, probably Braxton Hicks...

37 weeks down, 3 to go? Maybe, maybe not.

You will know when your water breaks! ;)

I had what felt like a small trickle that soaked through my underwear/shorts. Must've been discharge, I guess?

My water only broke with my girls and I knew.

DD1 was at 3am and I told dh his response "you sure?" Umm lol yes

DD2 I just got out of the shower and had a towel wrapped around me standing in my laundry room and it trickled. My mother was staying with us to take care of the older children when I went into labor. I called her and said "I think my water broke" She looked down started laughing and said "Umm yeah you think?!"

I did find out I'm 2cm dilated, 70% effaced. Which I know at this point is pretty normal. It'll be good to see if there's any progress made by the time my doctor checks me next Thursday.

I was like you - my water didn't break with my first, so I wasn't sure what to expect. It's VERY distinctive. This time, I actually dreamed I heard a "POP," woke up and dashed to the bathroom just in time (thank god for my cloth pads!). About a quart of clear liquid with little white curds (vernix) came out all at once. Liquid continued to leak as I labored, sometimes a slow drip and sometimes more gushes, especially when getting up from prone.

This gives me some insight, thank you!
