Before your water breaks, do you get a weird feeling? Like, what goes on?

Do you actually know that something is going to happen or is it just a surprise?
Do you get a weird feeling before it breaks?
or does nothing happen...and it just kinda breaks?

    This is a really good place to look. It talks about the stages of labour from the very very begining right through to delivery and all the stages in between. I hope this is helpful, good luck :D:D

  • I didn't know it was coming at all. I got up at 4 am to do another pee break and when I sat on the toilet it just gushed out.
    I remember just looking down and being like "did I just pee that out?" I couldn't tell a difference! It wasn't until I got up and started walking around and water just kept coming out uncontrollably that I realized it was my water that broke and not my bladder! lol

  • Personally I felt like I had to pass gas, then I felt a pop and a very nasty gush.

  • sounds like maybe yours is tryig to break but babies head is acting like a plug. Mine did that when I had ds #2, they went to break it and said it was already broke just his head was blocking

  • It sounds strange... but that morning I woke up and I felt sick. Just icky, yucky... My belly felt like it had been shrinkwrapped. The skin felt tight and it was uncomfortable. I called my doctor and moved up my appointment for the day because I felt awful. When I got into the doctor's office and sat on the table, my water broke! I suddenly had contractions five minutes apart. I hadn't had them before.
