  • It can feel like a little trickle, a gush, constant or here and there, like your period, or like Niagra Falls.
    Mine broke over a week before labor started (so no contractions at all), and was gushing... It was just like water colored & odor, mayyyybe a little sweet... It seemed like -- water!

  • Not sure, they broke mine at the hospital. I heard it feels like you are peeing yourself though.

  • The wetness does but you dont feel it coming out. I didnt even know my water broke until the next day.

  • w/ my first it was very small amounts & i didn't notice any smell.
    w/ my second it was a big gush and i felt like i had just peed all over myself.

  • Mine broke the morning of my induction (I was a miserable 42 weeks)! Mine was more of a trickle... and it felt like I was just continuously peeing... the doctor came in and broke it completely and it was green! The baby had pooped in me but, it she was fine and had no complications :)

  • I'm not sure there's a smell to it. I didn't smell anything when my water broke. I just felt like I was peeing awhole lot and couldn't stop.
