Mostly it looked & smelled like water~

But it can be "straw colored and straw scented."

I heard that a zillion times with my PROM  (water broke, no labor).

Slimey ?       
Was that because the plug was in there, too, maybe?

Just as a woman’s heart knows,

How and when to pump,

Her lungs to inhale,

And her hand to pull back from fire,

So she knows when and how to give birth.

When you say prom did you have any symptoms, like was baby less active?

No---    I was 39 weeks when my water broke and baby was  "big."     I delivered her 8 days later at 9 pounds...
So I figure she was just out of space.    ;-)
There were no indications of anything "different" than the usuall late-pregnancy stuff...
