If your water broke on it's own...

how much leakage did you have? How did you know your water broke? I just leaked through my underwear & pants, but IDK if it's just discharge or what. I thought it broke once before and I was wrong so I really don't want to go to the dr. .again just to be disappointed again...

I had my membranes stripped over 24hrs ago and I am 40w+2d

Thanks ladies!

  • mine broke in the shower but i thought i felt a little extra liquid on my legs but couldn't be sure so i thought i would just wait and see. then about 15 minutes later when i sat down to eat breakfast, some fluid came out and i stood up and there was a little fluid in my robe. it was probably just a about 3 oz...? that's just a guess though. :) i didn't feel a pop or notice any other way that feeling liquid come out. withing about 2-3 hours i was in intense active labor.

    one of the risks of stripping the membranes is premature rupture. there is a good article on it on the cochrane collaboration website.

  • I would go in to have yourself checked. Mine broke when I sat on the bed and then I went to the bathroom and it gushed. If it broke you will continue to leak for a while. Mine felt like a water balloon popped. It was a great relief of pressure as well. I wold def go get checked.

  • I had two bags of water. The first broke on its own at home. I got up from bed to use the bathroom and my underwear were much more wet than normal - not like I had peed my pants, though. I wasn't sure if it was my water or not, but after I peed and I went to stand up, stuff was still leaking out. When they broke the second bag at the hospital there was A LOT more water.

  • I felt like I peed my pants. Call your dr.
