With dd 1 my water broke while riding my bike at 38w 3days. I had a membrane strip a few hours earlier. It was just a steady trickle.

I was in labour and about 8cm. The midwife broke my waters to try and speed things up. I was 40 weeks exactly and it was just a gush and then a steady trickle.

I'd like to update that with DD it broke the same day gestationally as DS, 37w4d, and in the same manner, rolling over in bed. Weird huh?

At home, labouring in my rec room.
Midwife arrived and checked my dilation (6cm, could stretch me to 8 ) and accidently broke my forewaters. Once I was fully dilated I asked her to break the remaining bag.
I was 39w1d.

38w3d I had just had to suddenly go to the bathroom very early in the morning. Laid back down and started to doze when I felt/heard a pop and felt the gush. 12hrs later I was only at 3cm. 36hrs later my son was born.

42.5 weeks.

We were sleeping at my in-laws because (ironically!) the pipes had burst in our house.

Around 3am I woke up because I thought I had wet the bed a little bit. Went into the bathroom to get a a towel and my water, with meconium in it, was dribbling down my leg. To the hospital we went!

My mother in law cleaned up ALL the mess/meconium in her guest bed/bathroom. And my father in law fixed our pipes for when I got home from the hospital! I'm so greatful! :)

DS1: Broke them during my csection. 37 weeks.
DD1 & DS2: broke during c-section 34 weeks.
DD2: Broke while out to eat at 32 weeks....gushed all over the bench and the way out of the restaurant. I was so embarrassed but my waitress was sweet and didn't even let us pay the bill :D
DD3&DS3: Broke at the dr's office when I went in for my 32 week appointment. She sent me right down to labor and delivery. The scenario went like this...She walked in and said "Hi! How is everything going, how have you been feeling?" I said "great! No contractions like my last pregnancy and I feel pretty good for twins" At the word twins I felt a tug of sorts and my water around my DD broke while I was trying to get up on the exam table.

39w 6d with DS. I had been having very mild but rhythmical contractions for 7 hours. Woke up at 3am to pee, and when I stood up from the bed I felt a pop and then it came gushing out. Soaked through a thick pad within a minute. The contractions became very painful then. Went to the hospital 6 hours later and I was 5cm. DS was born 7 1/2 excruciating hours later. (No meds whatsoever).

Reeeally hoping my waters stay intact for longer this time because it made my labor so much more painful than it could have been with my first!
