Could be the early stages of labor. The peeing might remain although the cramping might just be mild contractions or turn into contractions... Just check to see if they are timable. As far as your water breaking - it's weird because with all the pressure and poking i feel from the baby you would think ok - she's gonna rupture that bag any second, but no! When your water breaks there is no warning or prior feeling of any sort... It just feels as if you've been holding in your pee all your life and all of a sudden it just all decides to come out at once (or could possibly trickle out little by little).
With my first it was a huge gush with no warning - contractions started hours later.
My second it didn't break until her head pushed out (BTW - with my second I was up every 1/2 hr peeing and having cramps - they turned into strong contractions by 6am from the night before), very similar to what your experiencing.
My third was contractions all through the night into the following morning. Dr.'s broke my water at the hospital.
Hope this helps and good luck!!!
