  • mine broke on the toilet... granted, I was at the hospital at the time, but it was due to pre-term labor issues... but it was great, because I was pushing because I thought I had to poo lol

  • As soon as I sat on the bed at the hospital. Then the nurse didn't believe me. Yah I was 8cm already, she got moving.

  • I had two of my labors start that way. The first one...I stood up after waking up feeling a very hard contraction and I felt just a tiny bit of fluid come out. There was no gush or a trickle or anything, but I felt like I had peed in my pants. The last baby, I was getting my kids things together to go stay with my mom while I had a scheduled induction the next day. I was fussing at my second daughter because she was not obeying me and it broke. It ran down my leg and every time I moved I got more and more wet. I went straight to the hospital. No contractions. Just wet.

  • I was at home in bed. I felt the need to pee, but since that is contact that late in the pregnancy, I just stayed put. When I rolled over a felt a kick on my spine and heard a pop. I decided to go to the bathroom at that point and as soon as I sat down it poured out! Kinda creepy b/c I lost my mucus plug then and when I looked down it was all blood. I looked down again and it was clear. Baby was out about 4 hours later.
