For me when my waters broke for a split second i thought i needed to go to the toilet then it just started coming out like i was peeing and had no control over it. I think it was clear but i cant be sure cause i had dark pants on and i was standing on my mums dark carpet. Felt disgusting. All wet. I just kept coming for about an hour. Slowed down to a trickle after 10 min though. Waters broke at midnight and at 12 midday they induced me because labour hadnt started. An hour later the contractions started and 6.5 hours later he has born. Hope this has been helpfull but just remember, everyone is different.

My mum had said that when she was pregnant with me she thought she had peed herself but it was her waters so she didn't go the hospital and only just made it there after the contractions got bad.
I got out of bed at 7am the day after I was due and went to the bathroom and then went to let my bird out of his cage. I bent down to open his door and my waters broke. I thought for a second that I had peed myself but then remembered I had just gone and what mum had told me. It was clear and feels like when you pee.(too much info, sorry) It stopped and then gushed twice more before I got to the hosp. Twice at home(went through 2 changes of clothes) and then when I got out of the car at hosp. My trackpants were saturated all down my legs! I must have looked a sight walking up the hill to the hosp! My contractions started straight away! An hour after waters broke, the contractions were 30sec apart and I was already 3cm dilated. Expect anything! I didn't think it would be so quick. Still, I ended up with a 13hr labour after failure to progress. was 8cm after 5 1/2hrs (12.30pm)but stopped. At 7.58pm I had emergency caesar. When my waters broke, I got really nervous but I was suprisingly calm. DH had gone to work an hour before (6am) so I was alone. I called mum, the hosp and DH and then mum again. It all suddenly hit me when my waters broke. I was having a baby! Oh, I loved that feeling. Good luck! It's amazing what some fluid can do!

least i know what to expect. but do u think that it is possible for your waters to break slowly over a couple of days? cause i think mine might be. i have been losing lots of fluid, but lots more in the last 2 days, it is very clear and lots of it, but i havent had a show. would u say that it mite be my waters slowly breaking
with DS, the midwife broke my waters just minutes before he was born... but this morning (well 20mins ago)... a couple of times, i leaked a tiny bit of fluid and i couldnt control it so im thinking it wasnt wee...! i have 3 weeks to go, so hopefully nothing else will happen... but will check with midwife and see whats happening anyway...
