Re: What were you doing when your water broke?

For DS's delivery, I had just laid down to go to sleep. Within 15mins, I felt a small gush and it just kept coming.

For DD, I was in the whirlpool, laboring. Her water broke just before she crowned. I felt/heard a pop and I could feel warm "water" all around my legs. I barely had time to tell the nurse my water had broken. DD was born 2-3mins later.

With DS I had just walked out the bathroom door and though, okay, I just went. There is no way I just peed myself.

Re: What were you doing when your water broke?

I voted other, because I had two to list. The first, I was cooking dinner. The second, I was pushing him out .

Re: What were you doing when your water broke?

With my first two, my water didn't break until the end of my labor.

With my third, my water broke before I went into labor. I was 40w1d and I was laying down with my girls to put them to bed. I heard a *pop-pop* sound and thought, "What the heck?!" The girls were sleeping so I carefully climbed out of bed and went to the bathroom and noticed I was leaking fluid, but it was just trickling. As I was standing in the kitchen a few minutes later it broke in a huge gush.

With my fourth, my water broke prematurely while I was sleeping. I was 30w6d pregnant and woke up to a wet bed. At first I thought it was urine but then I recognized the familiar "trickle" and went into the hospital where they tested it and it was amniotic fluid. I had to sit on hospital bedrest for 4 weeks after that! Luckily my fluid levels never got too low and the huge gush didn't come until I was in active labor nearly a month later.

Re: What were you doing when your water broke?

Driving to work. I worked all day with a maxi pad on, since it was a small leak and seemed to seal itself up right away, since I was not about to turn around and do a 2 hour commute back home for nothing (felt no ctx). When I got out of the car after driving home at the end of the day, it gushed.

Re: What were you doing when your water broke?

I've only had my water break before labor once out of 4 kids so far. That was during early labor while I was sleeping with #3. He's my wildcard baby I think - he was breech, water broke before labor and he was born before his due date. The others have all been at least a week late and water didn't break at all or only during transition. My 4th baby was born in the caul actually
