Signs water may break soon? What were you doing when or before your water broke?

I'd just like to hear some stories about water breaking. Had you been very active before it broke? Did you have a normal pregnancy? How far along were you? Mine didn't break on its own with my first. I'm 35.5 weeks pregnant with my 2nd. This time I have aot more BH contractions that are stronger & painful. She kicks like crazy - I feel like she could break my water sometimes!

My water broke naturally with my son.

I hadn't felt any BH the whole pregnancy. I wasn't overly active, though I had taken a walk that morning. There weren't really any signs that made me think "okay, my water's going to break soon". I used the bathroom, stood up, and it broke. I was 3 cm dilated, and 4 days before my due date. Baby's head was still pretty high up. 

This time around, the doctor broke it in the hospital. I was 6 cm and the baby's head was right there, but it didn't break on its own. That was 5 days before my due date.

I was 38 weeks and 4 days when mine broke, the funny thing is, I was scheduled to be induced the next day! So my son just decided he couldn't wait that long!
