  • Probably you will see what is called "bloody show." But, not always. You may not notice it or it may be faint. You will know if your water has broken when it progressively gets heavier and doesn't stop.

  • No, bloody show is usually a few days before and it looks like snot with a ting of red or pink. If your baby has pooped then the waters won't be clear.

  • There will be a heck of a lot of "water" like 1/2 gallon.

  • If you mean the amniotic fluid, then yeah, there will be floods of it. You'll definitely know.
