Have any moms here had strange things break their water? Like sneezing or coughing...

Just wondering...I am 37 1/2 weeks pregnant and coughing and sneezing my head dh laughed and said I was going to break my water.

We laughed and then I started wondering if that was possible... :) :)

  • My moms did? She told me she had gone for alot of walks hoping to bring on labor and finally made it home from one walk.. She took a shower and sneezed (water got in her nose I guess) and her water broke. SO I dont know if it was her walk, or the sneeze, but she says thats how it happened. Honestly I think its random. My dds water broke while she was asleep. I think your water breaks when the baby is head down and pushes against the bag and itll happen no matter if you sneeze, walk, or whatever.

  • Mine broke while I was sleeping so not sure what broke it really. With my second it didn't break until she crowned, but the doc wanted to do it earlier and I declined.

  • The dr had to break my water with my two oldest boys but with my daughter it broke on it's own and I thought I was just constipated. LOL. She was born 45 minutes later.
