Do you remember what it felt like when your water broke?

The doctor broke it for me when I was induced. I'm just remembering it now, it was so gross. That was one of the most uncomfortable parts of giving birth, I felt like I was peeing myself until they put the catheter in. Yuck!

  • both times it happened in the hospital, first was artificially second was on it's own but both felt like something had popped inside me, it startled me both times, and then it was just a huge, warm, nasty gush lol. i thought it was never going to stop both times.

  • With my first one I didn't feel a thing! Heck I didn't even know that is what had happened for a day and a half (it was a leak not a hole). My second one I was sitting in the hospital and it felt like a little pop and then I was soaked. I was sitting crosslegged on the hospital bed needless to say the socks that I had been wearing went in the trash when all was said and done. lol

  • I was in the hospital and in bed and it broke on it's own... I remeber calling the nurse saying... "I think my water broke... that or I peed the bed" LOL
    And well, it felt hot and wet

  • With my first one, I was in the middle of making pancake for breakfast and I felt it come out. With my second one, I was scrubbing the kitchen walls (something I was not supposed to be doing because I had toxemia/pre-eclampsia and was told to stay in bed) and I felt it break and run down my legs. both of these times, I had to shove a towel in between my legs because when I would move, there would be a gush. It was NASTY feeling!


    With my third, they broke it for me because they were going to induce, but I went into normal labor by myself.
