  • Some times its a big gush but with my first child I leaked for like 3 hours and then I started to get worry so I went to L&D and sure enough my water was leaking/breaking slowly.

  • how long has it taken to change your panties that much, an hour, or all day? If it is your water when you laugh or sneeze or grunt while holdiong your breath it will gush out more and it is very noticable then.

  • my water never gushed as some women put it it was a slight leakege-your water prolly broke how far along are you.
    Time to go to L&D and they will test it and you will soon have your little one!
    good luck mama.
    now go to the doctor, we need no back seat babies today!

  • Your water may have broken, but late in pregnancy women can also just get very watery discharge. I did with my last pregnancy and had to change my panties 4-5 times a day. When my water actually broke I felt lots of pressure like I needed to go to the bathroom. I sat up in bed and was pretty sure if I stood up I wouldn't make it to the commode, so I sat still a minute to see if I could control it. Then I heard this audible *pop* and an enormous gushing flood. I stood and ran to the commode where there was another smaller pop and more gushing. It was a cartoon.
