What does your water breaking feel like?

I am 30 weeks, don't think mine is, just curious what to expect.

  • It feels like you're peeing and it doesn't stop until you have your baby so make sure you have some pads in your purse unless you want to look like you peed your pants on your way to the hospital.. You may not end up needing it (a lot of women don't experience their water breaking like they show in the movies.. they just go into labor with contractions).. but if you're water does break while you're at the store or work, you're going to wish you had a pad in your purse!! I hope this helps!

  • It depends. My first pregnancy, it was just a constant little dribble. I kinda thought i was having bladder issues. The second time, I heard and felt the pop and there was a hush gush of fluid that left me in NO DOUBT of what just happened.

    yeah, mine went so hard that no pad in the world could have stopped it. I put a pad on, changed my pants and went to the hospital. When I got out of the car at the hospital it gushed again and I walked into the hospital with wet pants. I figured that I was walking into a hospital extremely pregnant with wet pants, no one would think I peed my pants, they would think my water broke. My DH got a wheel chair and I put my overnight bag on my lap. When we got to L&D the nurse said "OK, let's check to make sure it really is your water breaking" I lifted up the bag and when she saw my pants she said "Never mind, let's just get you to a room"
    I nearly died laughing.

  • For me with my first two my water broke as I was in active labor. With my third I felt this pop like a balloon popping but no gush no nothing so I thought for sure I just imagine things. We headed to the hospital because we lived and hour away and my second labor was 2 hours long. Sure enough it was my water.

  • With my first, it felt like a big pop and then I felt a gush. With my second, I was pushing when my water broke.

  • I felt like I was having a VERY heavy period...
    I leaked a lot everyday, using up a couple of boxes of maxi pads daily.
    Warm, wetness coming from up there.
