  • Mine broke at work in front of the students I teach. ( I work with special needs middle school kids). I was at the stove teaching the kids how to turn the timer on and BAM! A huge gush of water came on out. I had so much water it was insane. By the time I got to the nurses office, my pants were soaked, my socks and shoes were soaked, there was a small puddle in my classroom, small puddles in the hall way and a huge one in the nurse's office bathroom. Everyone kept telling me the unlikelyhood of your water breaking outside of the hospital...I must be in the 3-10% range. The funny thing is when I got to the hospital, the house doctor asked me how I knew my water broke (in a voice of not believing me). The nurse looked at him and laughed and said, "Well its running down her leg and forming a puddle on the floor." I was glad my doctor was there to deliever and not the house doctor.

  • I sat down on the bed and felt a water balloon pop. It was my due date anyways and about 2 hours before my doctors appt. I called to office to cancel and they told me the doctor would meet me at the hospital. I wasn't even dilated by the time I got there and they had to start the pitocin. I must be part of that 3-10% too.
