i didn't expect my water to break before labor cuz i knew that the TV thing where the woman is in a crowded store when her bag ruptures and h20 floods the floor, and she immediately starts having intense contrax is relatively uncommon
but that was sort of what happened to me. i was 41 wks when my water broke in the shower. wasn't sure because of the shower! then i was leaking later when i was eating breakfast, & there was fluid in my robe. i did have crampiness all night the night b4
within an hour or 2 my labor was intense, and my contractions were coming fast! it was pretty painful but manageable w/o drugs.
then my son was born at 6:00 pm, with my water breaking around 9:00 am. so all-in-all, it was much shorter than i thought it would be. everything just went so fast!
i thought it might be cuz of my water breaking b4 because i have heard people say that after their water broke, their labor intensified and sped up
