It turns out I ruptured on top not on the bottom like most people. So after that long story, I'd have it checked if I were you.
This is what I am questioning. I just can't tell because they are very little gushes of fluid. The feeling is similar to when you feel a small gush of blood during your period. I always had my water pop before. #1 was during pushing, #2 was an hour before she was born, #3 was broken by the OB while i was pushing. I could feel and hear the pop with them and then felt a torrent of fluid. So this odd now and again like 1 tsp to 1 tbsp of fluid at a time is just confusing. Especially because the information out there is conflicting.

Two out of three times my waters leaked, there was no huge gush. Often just felt like a bladder leak from baby pushing on my bladder. Best to get checked though. If it's a rupture, yes it will continue to make new fluids but there's an increase risk of infection as time goes on. That and you're still early.

The feeling of a small gush of blood is exactly how this felt! Go get checked. I was on the fence because I actually felt stupid with this being my 5th child and not knowing what it was.

Re: August 2016 August Chat

Dagny- Any updates? I've never had my water break. It's always been broke at the hospital after being induced..but I've heard it can just slept of dribble/drip.


Morgan is 13 days today. He's such a good baby! I'm taking him for a weight check tomorrow.

Who else is waiting for their baby to be born? I think once the last baby is born, we should start a new thread. It would be fun to keep up with each other.

Congratulations Nichole! Welcome Gydeon!

We are still waiting on our kiddo to make his/her appearance. Due date is 8/26 (I'm 36+5 today), but since this is our first baby/pregnancy...there is a possibility we have a September baby... Keeping my fingers crossed we don't go that late!

The leaky feeling stopped in the middle of the night. Now I am dealing with an external hemorrhoid. I have had fissures before but this HURTS.

We're still waiting. 37w1d. Woke up last night from what I guess was round ligament pain, but it stayed sore today. Now I've just felt generally kind of sick all day. Hopefully this will go away soon.

Congrats to those that have had their babies!
