  • It's very hard not to notice. Basically you fill a water balloon until it's full, stick it between your legs, and then squeeze. Once it pops you'll be soaked in its contents, as well as the floor surface around you. It's more then just wetting your pants, more like wetting your pants continuously. For me it wouldn't stop leaking. I'd go to clean up and more would gush out, but finally it slowed down enough where a panty liner soaked up what was left. That way I could get to the hospital without being soaked.

  • For me I was just standing up talking on the phone and water just started dribbling down my legs. Sometimes your OB will break your bag of water before you have the baby and thats a big gush of water.

  • Oh, I noticed.... I got up off the couch and all of a sudden it felt like I peed my pants. When it just wouldn't stop, I figured out it was actually my water breaking.

  • It is possible that is could go un-noticed but only if you are in the hot shower, because it literally feels like you pissed your pants. You really can not miss something like that. LOL
