  • You never know. You can lose your plug & your water won't break. Your plug also grows back, good luck

  • You don't, it just breaks... or sometimes it doesn't, at least in a way you take much notice.

  • You know when fluid starts running down your legs. You might feel a little something right before that. I did with DD. when my water broke with DS it woke me up in bed. I was able to get to the bathroom before it came gushing out.
