  • Well, i have to say you ladies are so luck! Mine broke while driving home from my job!!!!! Luckily I was wearing a pad that day and my seats are leather! I def felt a pop and a big gush of fluid. I was like 2 minutes from home. I went home, waited 1 hour for my hubby to get home and went to the hospital....3 hours later my son was born! BTW the nurse didnt beleive that my water had broken...I was like yea it did I peed before I left work and I FELT IT!!!! LOL....even the little litmus test they do to confirm was iffy, but when she finally did an exam they knew.

  • No 2Blonde, *most* BOW will rupture (later) in labor.
    It's about 10% that are PROM, though, is that what you meant?
    Babies are born in the caul if it doesn't break.

  • Mne never broke with either pregnancy. I think the percentage of women who actually experience their water breaking is 25%....I could be wrong but it isn't as high as one would think. The nurses told me this both deliveries.
