35 weeks, I think my water broke but no contractions Meagan Paige Due September 16 (boy); Greene, Maine 28 posts

so last night I was laying down about ready to go to sleep, and I coughed and turned at the same time. all of a sudden I felt a gush of liquid come out and I was sure I had wet the bed. went to the bathroom and inspected everything..turns out it wasnt pee, just clear thin liquid and didnt smell like urine at all. Im pretty sure it was my water breaking...I mean what else would it be? this all happened at 11:30pm and it is now 5am, I dont think Im feeling any contractions. according to everyone Ive talked to, contractions are unmistakeable and painful so Im pretty sure I'd know if I was having them. The only thing Ive felt is some minor back pain and pressure on my pelvic area. baby is still moving, was moving a LOT when it all happened and now has slowed down a bit. has this ever happened to anyone? should I be concerned??

I would go get checked at the hospital or ob office. If it did that's a huge risk of infection among other things.

just one gush.. and tiny trickles here and there..but barely noticeable. a little 'damp' down there but nothing like the first gush.

May as well go to the hospital and get checked. Labor doesn't always come on as dramatic as it is often made out to be. Many women go into labor and don't realize it immediately. The pain and pressure can be the start of labor. If you believe you are leaking amniotic fluid, it's always best to be on the safe side and get checked.

Put a pad on, call l&d and they can check the pad to see if its your water. Good luck

My water broke at 35 weeks. I woke up wet. I didnt think nothin' of it i just thought i peed myself. i didnt have contractions.I didnt go too th hospital till 3 days later because i started gettin' contractions. Turns out it was my water that broke and when my baby was born he had too be on antibiotics for 7 days. So i recomend you go too the hospital or get it checked out.

Good luck!
My water broke and I never started having contractions on my own. They ended up having to induce me.
