Waters breaking Lock Rss

hi all
I am having my second baby as alot of you know, but with my first baby my waters had tobe broken and I didnt even feel it as I had a very strong epidural. I ma wondering what it feels like and how will i know. My mum said nce hers gushed and a big mess, the other time it trickled. I ahve read another thread in here that says sometimes it can trickle but it could be your hind waters. How do i know the difference. i was expecting a show first as I had a show with Ash 2 days before. Occasionally i feel a wetness but I know its not wee. it sounds gross but we r all preg or have been! lol I am just not sure. I am expecting a gsuh but what if that doesnt happen? I know that if your watedrs break early you need to go to hospital incase of infection, but I dont want to get there and have them tell me i wet myself! lol Its so embarrassing yet so confusing... What do u think? how do i know? I ma 37 and a bit weeks by the way.

With my first my waters had to be broken with my last baby I had no pains but having gone to bed at night felt as though I was wetting myself, there was probably only about half a cup full, but it kept on trickling through out the night, in the early morning the pains started and I kept on leaking sometimes only a little but other times it felt like quite a lot - I had to sit on a supply of old towels. By the time I was in full labour there was not a lot of fluid to come out with the baby. I guess it is different for us all, but that was my experience, it may be totally different with this one I am carrying.
Hope your birth goes well.

hi with my first baby my waters just trickled out then after about an hour more and more started to come out and I started having mild cramps from the time they broke, with my 2nd it trickled then when I stood up it gushed out and I had very strong contractions from about a minute after they broke.

I thought my water had broken when I was about 37 weeks along I had a small gush but it turned out to be a false alarm and it made me wonder if i'd wet myself but it did feel differnt and I dont think it was wee but I guess i will never know.

I think you will know when it comes for real

I was induced with my first child and therefore I was at the hospital. My waters broke about 45 mins later as I sat down following a short walk and they dribbled down my leg.

With my second child I was unsure of when they would break and where I might have been when they did. I kept asking the midwife at each of my visits leading up to the birth if I should come in when I get pains or when my waters break. I could say I was pretty anxious about it.

As it turned out my waters broke about 30 seconds before my baby was born so I'm glad I didn't wait for that to happen before I left for the hospital.

Hi everyone,
For about 5 days before i had my daughter i kept having this leeking on & off it would soak through my undies and pants & it wasn't yellow and had no smell like urine, anyway 2 days before i gave birth i rang the hospital as i was worried and they got me to come in for a check, they made me wear a pad for an hour & then 2 different midwifes checked it and said its hind water fluid not urine & that ive got a pinhole leak, i then had a Oby check me(he looked all of 18 &just out of medical school)& he said its urine which i still dont believe it was & was sent home,the next night(Thursday) i had a show & the contractions started but my waters broke with a big gush about 45 mins before i had her(Friday 11.50pm)
If you are concerned i would ring your hospital and get them to check it out & put your mind at ease
Good luck smile
