Re: For those who have had their water break..

Well darnit I've had 3 and never had my waters break before active labor. With dd2 it popped while checking in at Triage but I was already like 7cm by the time i got there lol. I think it would be cool to start labor off like that for once haha.

I can't help too much. First was a c-section and second my water broke at night while I was sleeping. I just remember waking up and having water gush out. So, if their were any feelings before that I was sleeping.

My first one was a gush when I stood up from a nap-no warning. Next one didn't break until pushing, third mw broke, this last one was a leak-no warning/no cramping

With DS I had only had a few contractions before my water broke. I leaned down to grab my birth ball and *pop* like a balloon, gush everywhere and immediate contractions right on top of each other! I had to have DH help me to the bathroom and help me get my wet pants off. He was all "you can't take your own pants off?" I said "would I be asking you if I could?" lol!! If it wasn't so intense at the time it would have been hilarious!

Re: For those who have had their water break..

Hmmm with my first I was at work (with a male coworker cleaning the moose yard, yeah not ideal) and bent over to pick something up and felt a pop and gush. Honestly I though I had peed myself, until I stood up and had another huge gush, then I knew it was my water breaking. I didn't start contracting for about another hour or so but the contractions were more intense from the start.

DD1 my water broke on its own right before I started pushing. DD2 my mw broke my water at 7 cm, b/c I had been there for about 2 hours and I wanted things to start moving along more quickly.

Re: For those who have had their water break..

With dd I kept waking in the middle of the night (every 15-30 mins) because I had the urge to go #2. It went on for 4 or so hours when I finally started leaking. There was no pop or huge gush or anything.

I keep feeling like mine is going to break. I woke up a bunch of times last night to check. Which is weird because I do not think I am going to have this baby early and I have a couple weeks til my EDD.
