Water breaking...

FTM question ... Actually 2 questions...

If your water broke on its own was there any sign prior to it breaking that would have made you wonder if it was close to happening? Or was it a complete surprise?

If you had to have your water broken at the hospital was is painful to have done? What's the process and procedure for this?

Re: Water breaking...

  • My water has never broken on its own, the doctor always had to do it at the hospital, so I can only speak to that.  Basically they put this crochet-type hook up there and pop the bag of water.  I never felt anything other than a gush of war
  • My water broke in my sleep with my first. There were no signs that it was about to happen.

  • My water broke naturally at 38 weeks. I had walked and stood in lines all morning at a big baby convention and wore myself out. I had some mild cramps all day and my swelling did go up a lot by that evening. That's pretty much it, I had not dilated at all

  • Broke on its own. I lost the plug that morning and water broke late afternoon with small spurts no big gush. Irregular contractions started a couple hours later.

  • Mine broke on its own. I had been to the Dr. The day before and she too me it may happen so that was really the only sign.

    since it broke in many small gushes (vs. one big one) I wasn't 100% sure in the beginning - so I put a pad on (to see how w

  • With my daughter, I was already in the hospital and had my membranes stripped, lost my mucus plug and then my OB was checking progress and my bag of waters ruptured. Other than that, no contractions/nausea/diarrhea/etc.
