Qld, 14,12,10, 5 yr old girls, and baby boy!
the second time i was in the emergency department waiting room with a really high temp and also in the early stages of labour then all of a sudden my waters broke all over the waiting room chair.
again so embaressed.
hopefully this time it will be in private not in the middle of the supermarket or something.
looking forward to hearing other stories.

With my 1st daughter, I was in established labour (23hrs along) and I had a sudden urge to push, I pushed and broke my own waters on the toilet. 15 minutes later my daughter was born. Same with my 2nd daughter but, she was born 5 minutes after I broke my waters from pushing.

We waited 1/2hour and it kept going - very slight trickle every now and then, which was slightly green, so we called the hospital and headed in. My labour never started overnight, so they induced me at 9am the next morning.
The second water broke just as they were putting the epidural in my back, it broke with a significant "pop" sound.

With my second i was actually sitting on the computer looking at this site. my hubby and DD #1
i had been having contractions for a few hours after being sent home from a failed gel induction.
I heard this weird popping sound just as hubby was getting in the car to go out with DD#1, i looked at him and nothing else happened so i waved him off. then about 10 mins later it felt like another contraction and all this water came gushing out on to the computer chair i ran (well waddled) to the toilet and more came out

Yeah mine were broken by the midwife at the hospital. We weren't sure if they had been leaking as I was getting fluid coming out through early labour but it turned out to be a 'show'. Roxy was born about 15hrs later though.
Horrible looking hook-y things they use though aye? LOL! xx

I then realised after taking a step to go back to the loo and gushing everywhere that my waters had broken.
I was booked for an induction the next day and rang the hospital just to let them know and said I'd see them in the morning but was told to come in straight away.
My contractions didn't start so I was put on the drip, however after nine hours and only progressing to 5 cm's (and I was three cm's dilated three days before my waters broke) I had an emergency c-section and gave birth to my beautiful whopper of a boy, Hayden.
Apparently his head was too big to come down and make me dilate - he was 11 pound 10 born - and the pressure from his weight had made me dilate and my waters break.
