How does it feel when your water breaks???

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
Although I'm 38 weeks pregnant & this is my 3rd pregnancy, I've never had my water break naturally, before actually going to the hospital. Both times my contractions started at home, we went to the hospital & they broke my water there.

Since I haven't experienced this in the past - I'm wondering will I know if/when it happens this time.

So mommies how did it happen for you?
Was it a little trickle or a huge gush?
Not to be gross but, does it smell like urine or is it odorless?

Thanks :)

 Mine leaked for hours and I thought I was peeing my pants until contractions started. I was pretty grossed out. It didnt smell like urine.

For me, it felt like i peed my self but everytime I moved it just kept coming... My sister says her was like one huge gush of fluid, and my other sister says her's was just like a tiny trickle of water here and there. So its different for everyone, I think it has to do with how big the tear in your water is, on how it comes out... idk For me it was odorless. didnt smell like anything.

Bad Golf Taking advantage of a balmy day in New York, a priest and three other men of the cloth swapped their clerical garb for polos and khakis and time out on the golf course. After several really horrible shots, their caddy asked, "You guys wouldn't be priests by any chance?" "Actually, yes, we are," one cleric replied. "How did you know?" "Easy," said the caddy, "I've never seen such bad golf and such clean langu

2 of mine was just a trickle, 1 was a giant gush.  You don't really "feel" anything.  And mine had no smell whatsoever.

 I just felt a warm gush of water between my legs. Like I peed on myself.

For me, I had squatted down to get something and I felt this pop and then water kinda gushing out. Then it stopped. Then I went to restroom and as I sat on the potty I felt another pop and more water. I went to the hospital and they had to pop the other 2. Apparently your water can actually break 4 times.

Mine broke in the middle of the night I had a sharp pain in my back and I sat up, it was a gush, I thought I peed in the bed. I didn't smell anything from it.
