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.
