  • Just so you know, only about 15% of women's water breaks on their own. And most of the time it's a trickle. With both of my kids, the doctor had to break mine,

  • I love how in movies they make it look like it's this huge gush of water and then you are instantly screaming and ready to push lol. Hollywood is so fake! I had my water broken by the doctor both times as well but I have heard from friends that when they're water broke (on its own) it was a trickle that would give a small gush every now and then when they switched positions or walked.

  • its diffrent for everyone, mine broke in small trickles, i remember being really freaked out, saying... "ummmm, im not peeing!!!" with my first one, the second time, i was sleeping and i woke up thinking i peed myself... till i went to the bathroom and it was trickling out, then i realized what was going on.. i wasnt expecting it becaue i never noticed my plug come out either time, and both my kids were premiture.

  • My water broke as the sign I needed to go to the hospital for both of my pregnancies. The first time, it just trickled. I thought I was peeing a bit. Then I realized what it was.
    The second time I heard and felt a pop and a huge gush of water came bursting out. It was like freaking Niagra Falls. I was completely soaked and a huge puddle of fluid was on the floor at my feet.
