water breaking...

i was told that your water can break like at the top, and leak out little by little which freaked me out. if this happens, will i be able to tell? im nervous about it. i was told it is rare, but still. i was also told that it will be like you are peeing your pants, just in very small amounts. true? btw i was due yesterday, so its not like too early or any of that.

  • You will be able to tell. I found this out the hard way. I was told that either you will have a gush or a slow trickle. Once your water breaks with every contraction more fluid will come out. I was not told this and every time I had a contraction I flet as though I peed my pants. So even if your sac ruptures at the top you will continue to feel wetness with every contraction. Hope that helps alittle.
