  • There are all kinds of breaks. It could be through one membrane (a short gush OR a trickle that stops after a bit). And there is a high leak that is a consistent trickle. A low rupture is usually the gusher. And baby's head can cork it~ mom's movement will release the gush here & there.
    Also, a break can reseal.

    NOTHING inside after a rupture. No intercourse, vaginal exams, or tampons.

    And if baby is vertex at term, the color and odor are safe, and you're not feverish, the contractions will let you know when it is time to go in.

  • Not maybe unless you KEPT peeing and knew that the urine should be done streaming by now.

  • LMAO nicole :) haha im sorry im not laughing at you but you were probably thinking WTH? lol :)

    what if its a good trickle? like the other day when i was walking home my JEANS got wet. through my panty liner under wear and onto my heavy duty JEANS. it wasnt just a little spot maybe like 2 in long? and ive been trickling somewhat more than just the average discharge but not a LOT either... and when i pee and i sit there more will come out a few min later.... idk maybe im just thinking too much into it?

  • When you're peeing with ruptured membranes it won't keep gushing & gushing & gushing, exactly. There will likely be spurts as you release the muscles and tighten again. Like when stopping a stream of pee mid-way through. But you could notice that it's not coming from down low at the urethra. The uterus is leaking coming down a couple of inches through the vagina. It it's a hearty-sized leak, you might notice a difference between where it's coming from. Also, it's farther back a little than your pee hole.
    But when you stand up and put your undies back, you'll leak again a gush or trickle... Might seem like you didn't finish peeing...

  • It will probably be sooner than a few minutes later. If it's a
    "gushing position" then it'll probably keep coming-stop-coming-stop, every few seconds.
