With DS1, I was at the hospital for induction. I'd just been given cervadil, and an hour later wiped too much and pulled it out. As I was going back to the bed, I felt a gush.

With DS#1, I had just eaten a late dinner; it was 7 p.m. I went to pee TMI--- I wiped, as I stood up to finish pulling my undies up, my water broke!!! I yelled "Uh-oh!!!" and DH knew exactly what had happened, and came running in! I hopped in the shower, and headed to the hospital!

(Funny thing is- I was scheduled to have a c/s early the next morning!) LO had his own plans!

With my first, my water broke after 16 hours of labour, right before she was born.
With DS, my water broke in my kitchen while I was cooking dinner. He was born 3 days later.

With DS1 my I heard a pop when getting out of my brand new (delivered that day) bed and I went to the bathroom and gushed as soon as I sat down. With DS2 they broke my water.

I felt a pop while I was sitting on the sofa, but didn't feel any leaks so I went about my business. A few hours later after walking the dog, cleaning the kitchen, and going to bed, leakage and labor started! I was so surprised because I was only 38w1d and expected to go the whole 40!
