So, if your water broke when you went into labor, what were you doing?

For me, with Luke, I was sleeping.

Re: What were you doing when your water broke?

I didn't vote because I had AROM as part of an induction with my first two, and my water didn't break with #3 until I was fully dilated and about to start pushing.

I have two close friends whose labors began with spontaneous rupture, though. One was sitting on her sofa reading a book and one was climbing stairs.

My water broke with my son at about 4 am when I had gotten up to use the bathroom. I was so lucky it broke over the toilet!

That's what happened with me with DS1 only it was 2:30am.

With DS2 my water broke as I was pushing.

The only time my water broke spontaneously was with the twins. I was sleeping. It was 4am. I woke up thinking I peed myself and went to the bathroom and realized that the "pee" wasn't stopping. The girls were born 4 hours later

Mine did not break till my dd was crowing. I was lucky, I was nervous of a mess! Instead the nurses had to deal with it

With my first my water broke while I was getting dressed. I had just used the bathroom so I was pretty sure it was my water breaking. It was just a trickle though. Later that day I had the gush while walking to the bathroom (at that point I was already at the hospital).
