  • Hun, I think your water broke! That happened to me! BUT you may not be dialated very far. So it may still take a little bit. If you call your Dr. they will want you to go in asap.Good lUck

  • When your water breaks, you'll know it. Not only would your panties and pants be soaked, but so would your legs/feet and the ground around you. However, any amount of odd discharge should be discussed with your doc or midwife.

  • When my water broke it was during a really stong contraction that just came on. And it was a lot of water. Are you having any contractions? Contact your doctor just to be safe. Good luck!

  • op here - when I had my son my sac tore so the water came out in tiny gushes. that was 3 years ago. I'm not contracting now but have been the last few days. I'm 35 weeks and 5 days... my son was born at 37.5 weeks... so I guess I need to go in...

  • Mine was leaking for awhile and I didn't know. But I do remember when I was in early labor the last night (2 days of fun b4 hospital) at one of my contractions i felt a gushing with it. I knew it wasn't pee so there was no other explanation? If its not urine you are leaking something. Go to the hospital and they can give you a strip test. Although mine took having an ultrasound to see it. Make sure you go in though bc my LO had an infection when she came out bc I had no fluid for over 24 hours and I had no idea. The only time I felt anything was that night.
