  • The first time I was asleep in the middle of the night and it was a slow leask so I thought I woke up peeing myself, then then about 2 hours after that we went to the hospital, my second baby I just had a thought one morning I do not want to roll over cuz my water will break well I rolled over to get out of bed and sure enough it broke and this time it was a big gush, about 1 hour later I went to the hospital, my third the dr broke it at the hospital

  • Conveniently I had just sat down to use the bathroom, had a very strong contraction and it broke. No mess to clean up at all. I called the doctor, jumped in the shower, did make up, etc waiting for my husband to come get me. I used very large pads so that I wouldn't leak everywhere. With my 2nd child they had to break it at the hospital.

  • Take a zinc supplement. I did with both pregnancies. Both times, the doctor had to break the sack during deliver. :-)

  • Yes, it broke over a week before I went into labor, so obviously pretty messy!!

    LOTS of laundry and boxes of maxi pads~ daily.

    Next baby was coming out in her sac, intact, almost the Opposite!
