When your water breaks?

Is their any feelings before your water breaks? I'm almost 37 weeks and I was just curious. Is their any "special ways" lol to make it break any quicker? I'm already 3cm and 60% effaced so.

  • You never know when it breaks there is no special feeling it will just happen and when it does it's a huge gush and it could be more than one huge gush and then you just keep leeking.

  • usually contractions start to come harder when the water breaks, you lose that cushion. I was trying to pee, and I pushed so hard I broke my water. No idea it was going to break.
