  • a warm gush that you cannot control (unlike pee where you can tighten your vagina muscles and it can stop)
    it may either be a gush, or it can trickle out but a good amount trickle.

  • It felt like a water balloon popped and then a warm gush.

  • Mine was a trickle that went on for a couple days. I went into the hospital, one test said it was the other said no. I know I was NOT peeing on myself.

  • Yah, kinda like peeing. Except coming from a different place: higher/farther back.

    I went through this for a while, too. I had to wear heavy maxi pads & change them frequently-- should've bought stock in the company, lol!! ;-P

    It was like a really really heavy period gush. The baby's head would cork, then uncork, cork, then uncork. I wet through my pants sometimes-- I'd have to hold stuff in front of me if I wasn't at home.

  • I was convinced that I was just having bladder control issues. It felt exactly the same, except in larger amounts than usual. I went through a maxi pad about every 20 minutes, and I managed to completely soak my shorts. The fluid was clear, and my urine was yellow, and I was still peeing as much as normal. The fluid eventually turned pink, from the blood when I was dilating.
    If I sat for awhile, then stood up, I'd get a pretty good gush.
