It sure sounds like it did!  Go to L&D to get checked and update us, too!!

and another thing, if your waters bag is slowly leaking (sounds like it) then it is better to let your OB know, because if the baby is without your waters for a while it is more likely to get infection.

It might have. I would lay down for a bit, then stand up. If you notice a leak I would say it did for sure. Either way, I would probably make a trip to L&D just to be safe.

I would go to L&D just to check. Wear your liner and they can just press the test strip against your wet liner and know immediately if your water broke! Literally, it took mine a micro second! Good luck!!

I agree, I have had alot of high leaks and it's hard to tell if it's really broken. I would get checked.

Does it have an odor?
AF is not usually yellow.

Are you able to "force" more out with a cough or push on the toilet or after lying down for a while?

Mine was broken for over a week, I saw a lot of white chunks, but I know it's usually clear.

Are you running a temperature?

IF you get checked in the hospital, be sure to refuse vaginal exams!!

Good luck!
