  • i didnt even realize that it was my water. i thought that the baby was just setting on my bladder and making me pee myself. this started about 10 am. i was also haveing some mild but sharp pains in my hips and hoo hoo. well by 10 that night i had to know why i kept doing this so went to L&D and i was dialated to a 9 and had my son no more then 20 minutes after i got there. i didnt feel a pop or anything just like i was peeing myself
