  • With DS #1, at home after a long day at work while standing up from the couch.
    With DS #2, climbing into the labor bed at the hospital.

  • DS - I experienced no labor at all. My blood pressure continued to be high and they called a c-section at 37 weeks.

    DD - It was 3am on the morning of my induction. I woke up to get ready to be at the hospital, rolled over and felt a little pop and kept feeling a little trickle of water every once in awhile. But since I was supposed to be headed to the hospital anyway I just decided I would slap on a pad (it really was that minimal of a trickle) after my shower and continue the next three hours as planned.

  • Mine broke right after I got to the birth center while I was standing up about 10 minutes before I started pushing and 20 minutes before my daughter was born!

  • with DS#1 there was a "sweaty" feeling down there at 3am so I got up to pee and noticed my underwear was wet (I thought I had peed a little). I changed my undies and got back in to bed. A while later I noticed my underwear was wet again but didnt need to use the toilet. I called my mom and asked her if it could possibly be my waters. She said unless it was a gush to not worry. So I changed my in to my 3rd pair of undeis and put a towel under me just incase for the night until I started noticing a small leak everytime I would have a 'braxton hicks" LOL I was in shock. I laid in bed til 6am and then let everyone know we were headed to the hospital. There they broke it the rest of the way, apparently I had a tear in the bag or something. DS was born 12hr after the first "leak"

     With DS#2 they broke my water for an unplanned induction due to an infection in my uterus. He was born 3hrs later.
  • AT WORK!! It was absolute craziness. My co-worker and I could do nothing more than laugh while I waited for my husband to pick me up, which just made more come out! We still talk about that day!!
  • DD - broke at work (I am a teacher but luckily had no class at the time!), but it was not a lot of fluid...I apparently had one bag inside another? The other bag broke 12 hrs into labor and DD was born almost 12 hours after that!

    DS - midwife broke my water to get labor going on my due date after 3 long & miserable days and nights of false labor

    I am anxious to see what happens this time! Any day :)
  • 5am on the toilet.

    I screamed to DH (he was upstairs, I was downstairs), and we kissed while I sat there and let it drip into the toilet.

    I ended up taking a shower, doing the dishes, straightening my hair and taking the dog for a walk.

    Hospital is 15 minutes away, didn't get there till almost 9am :)

    I was sitting up on the edge of my bed because I had a feeling it was about to happen and my water broke. I woke up my hubby and MIL and we headed into the hospital at 4 in the morning. Contractions started right away at 4-5 min apart.

    DD1-I was laying in bed, felt a pop, ran to the toilet and it started gushing out.

    DD2-In the car on the way to the hospital. Scariest experience of my life! We barely made it. The baby was at+3 station and I was already 10cm when we got there. 30 min later, she was out. No time for the epi.

    You didn't feel labor pains before this ? If not woooow
  • Mine broke naturally whole squatting and leaning over the head of the bed. I had just been checked at 9cm. Water broke and the urge to push happened. DD was born 10 minutes later.

  • DD#1 was a induction and the doctor broke my water

    DD#2 broke while i labor in the hospital after the epidural. I said to the nurse "that was weird. It felt like the baby kicked my crotch but her head is down."

    DD#3 we had just had an open house on our home. I had been having prodromal labor for 4 days. I laid down on the couch and felt a pop followed by a trickle. She was born at 37w 2d.
  • I was on my way into the bathroom to pee one last time right before bed. As I stepped into the bathroom it came gushing out. My initial thought was that I peed my pants. Then I went into shock and got shaky because I realized what it really was and knew tonight was the night!

  • Baby #1: OB broke my water at after 24 hours of active labor to try to get it to progress.

    Baby #2: Broke right before she was born at the hospital. I had an epidural but still had feeling - just no pain - and I felt something bulge into my vag then burst. Called the nurse in and the bag/membrane was hanging out of me and DD was about an inch from crowning. At first they thought it was the cord, but nope. They had me basically cross my legs to keep DD in while we waited the 30 minutes for my OB to get there.
  • Mine broke in bed in the triage room in the maternity unit between 7:30 and 8:00 am after waiting over 19 hours through regular contractions for some real progress. That got me admitted and dd was born 3 hours later!
