  • Yes. In fact, the majority of people don't gush. That is mainly a movie thing, used to show more drama. I had a slow leak with my daughter and just trickled for 5 weeks before I had her.If you think your water may have broken however, keep track of your temp.

  • Yes, I actually had my water break in Toys R Us. I thought it was just normal pregnacy discharge, but when it wouldnt stop and it became an annoyance I went to the doc, and yep my water was broke.

  • Yes. I leaked fluid from about 6 1/2 months on with Kaden. His fluid got so low that his lungs were very underdeveloped and they had to deliver him anyhow. He's fine now, but I wish I would have said something sooner b/c they may have been able to do something. DEF talk to your Dr.

  • If you think your water is broken, then it is important that you call the doctor and make sure you are seen. You cannot continue a pregnancy with broken membranes.
