For those whose waters broke naturally -

did you get a gush/trickle out of nowhere, or did you feel some pressure and then the gush/trickle?
Like, what did you feel down there in the minutes before it broke??

  • I thought I had an "accident" when I got up out of bed. It wasn't a lot of fluid, but enough to know that my water had broken.

  • I was going pee after I got to the hospital and when I stood up, a gush came out of warm fluid... I thought I peed at first... then right before I started pushing my other bag broke and it squirted at the DR. lol I thought I had peed..., I don't remember pressure or anything other than my son's weight..

  • It was a gush. It was around 5am I think and I just gushed (I was laying in my hospital bed). The nurse did not believe me when I said my water broke. "Oh you just peed on yourself." Whatever lady!

  • I was laying on my bed talking on the phone... The only way I know to describe the feeling is it was like when you have a heavy flow through your period and you feel the fluid coming out... I wouldn't call it a GUSH, but it was more than a trickle...

  • I didn't feel a thing... I got up off the couch to walk to the kitchen, and all of a sudden.... GUSH! I thought I'd peed my pants, but when I couldn't seem to stop, I figured it was my water, heh.

  • I had the urgent feeling of having to go to the bathroom and didn't make it. It was between a trickle and a gush.

  • I was in the hospital on a birthing ball. It sounded like a ballon popping, I sat there for another 5 minutes or so and nothing happend so I thought I cracked my back or something. I stood up and GUSH, it was everywhere.

  • I was asleep & woke up feeling like I needed to pee but my sweats were already wet. There was still a little bit trickling out.
