So how many of us actually had their water break???

It seems like it is not common at all... Mine didn't, the dr had to break it for me.

    So, how do you clean that up? Is it a big mess for a while? I've always wondered about all of this.

  • My doctor had to break it for the first 2 kids. I was really surprised when it broke on its own for the 3rd (about 45 min. before he came barreling into the world.)

  • Most will break if you wait long enough. Very few woman who have intervention free births deliver a baby without the water breaking (although it is possible).

  • this is confusing my older sis's water broke at 34 weeks but she didnt have the baby until 39 weeks and 1 day. Now I have had to have my water be broken for me with my first two pregnancies and am now on my third so i wonder what will happen and I really dont know what to expect because i was in the hospital bed both times mine was broken. I am hoping it will go on its own.

    mine wasnt a big gush it was more like a tricke. i put on one of the preemi diapers i had bough for ds. and i wore that. by the time we got to the hospital it was soaked.
