  • I think it's more likely that you had your first experience of female ejaculation - google it. If in doubt, call your ob or maternity. Better safe than sorry.

  • Is this your first pregnancy? If your water brok you would know it. Because you would be in Labor as in pain.

  • Your water actually can break before the onset of contractions, it's just not common. However unless there is a constant flow while lying down, that can't be 'pinched' off what winter glow said is more likely.

  • Did it come out with force and in spurts? Or just run? Did more pour out when you stood up?
    And seriously if you thought your water broke why did you climb back on and do it two more times?!?

  • When my water broke with my daughter, it just felt like I peed my pants. It wasnt a gush or a trickle, it was just a little wet, like I forgot to wipe after peeing. And I didnt start having contractions until 30 minutes after my water broke. It broke on its own at home. Oh I should mention that after that first feeling of wetness, I didnt feel anymore. My moms water broke with me at 7:30am and she didnt get any contractions or labor pains until after 5pm. So no you dont always get labor pains right after your water breaks. With my son, the doc broke my water when I was 7cm and I stopped having contractions altogether. They had to put me on pitocin to get things started again after they gave me an hour to start them on my own again. Everyone is different. When in doubt contact your ob/midwife.

  • Check with your doctor; everyone is different, but at some point you would go into labor and know that you need to get to the hospital. It could be that the baby is pressing on your bladder more during sex in that position.
