  • Depending on whether your ob breaks it or it comes naturally. My ob broke my water and it felt like a pinch. Then it feels like you wet the bed.

  • It didn't hurt, I was lying in bed and after taking 20 minutes to roll me and my big belly over, I heard a small "pop" and the next thing I knew I was gushing everywhere.

  • For me, it was a gush of fluid I didn't feel a thing until my thighs felt the fluid and my doctor broke my water.

  • the doctor broke the first one, didn't hurt. the second one, it felt like a gush of water and honestly, i actually told the nurse on the buzzer thing "i think my water just broke and if you don't get me inot the shower i'm gonna hurl." its just nasty. but once it breaks the baby is definitely on its way.

  • don't expect your water to just break b/c only a small percentage of women go into labor with their water breaking first. most of the time the dr. will break it or it may break once you start having contractions. but the actual breaking of the water doesn't hurt it just feels like a gush of warm fluid. kinda gross. however, once your water breaks, the contractions may become very intense.
