  • Start hydrating right now. Drink plenty of water. Your amniotic fluid will replace itself.

    Call your health care provider and describe your symptoms.

  • If your water has broke, YOU KNOW IT. Its like continous pee coming out lol. Like a spill on the floor. Real labor pains are like bad menstrual cramps and they don't go away. If its not going away, start timing the cramps. If its labor it will get stronger and more frequent.
