What are the chances of this happening? TIA, & TMI Little Richard's mommie! Due July 12 (boy); 1 child; Seneca, South Carolina 4293 posts

My SO is persistent to tell me how he does not want my water to break on him while we are having sex (TMI). He is so sure it will happen...O.o. So I am wondering what are the chances of my water breaking on him while we are having sex? Has this ever happened to any of you ladies before? Also what does the amniotic fluid smell like? He thinks it will smell terrible and be sticky, but since I have never had a baby the only thing I know is it doesn't smell bad...or so everyone says. TIA

im sure its POSSIBLE but not likely. to be honest a lot of women's water do not break at home. you wil probably go into labor (contracting) and head to the hospital with your water intact and then it break later on whether by the doctor or while pushing. it doesnt smell bad i dont know how it feels because mine only ever broke at the hospital onto a hospital pad lol.

He swears it's going to happen lmao. He keeps saying it's too close to my due date. I tried to convince him it will help me with labor :/ but he won't listen. Gosh darn men are hard headed.

It's not sticky and it doesn't smell bad. Tell your dude to get over himself. Even if it did break on him, he can take a shower and clean himself up. There are a lot more "gross" things than amniotic fluid involved in giving birth (duh). Does he plan on being in the room when you have the baby?



My water broke all over my SO, the birthing ball I was sitting on and the floor. No big deal.

TBH the wetness your vagina naturally creates while having sex is grosses than your amniotic fluid. It smells sweet, if it even has a smell and is not sticky. Your SO is a little odd....




Let him know that semen can help soften your cervix and it's actually suggested to help labor along once you're in the early stages.

My water broke at home and I was in labor for two day after, on anti-biotic of course. The amniotic fluid has a smell all of its own, and like others have said its not sticky and very un-likley to happen during sex!! Tell him he should enjoy the time he has with you before the baby comes!!

Not that likely I wouldnt think.
My fiance and I have sex pretty regularly and my cervix has remained closed and my water unbroken.
and with my two year old daughter



I tried using sex with my ex husband to avoid the medical induction I was scheduled for, and it didnt do anything.

my cervix was open for 5+ weeks with my last two pregnancies. i had sex all the way up to my due date and my water did not break LOL it was 4-5 cms for a week or so and then 6 and then i finally went into labor.

That's so funny! Yeah it is very likely to break all over him and you can't get the terrible smell off for WEEKS!



Seriously, it's amniotic fluid... There's nothing about it to freak over, it's a pretty subtle smell, almost sweet. It's not sticky, it feels like plain water!
