Not sure Laurynn Maggard Due July 1 (boy); 1 child; Birmingham, Alabama 58 posts

This is kinda TMI, but I was on the potty trying to use the bathroom (no. 2) and suddenly I felt some trickles and then a little more came out. It wasn't a huge gush, but I don't think it was pee either because I didn't have the urge and it def didn't smell like urine either. Possible water breakage?

That has happened to me both pregnancies. It's your bladder full of pee! If you are concerned I woul totally call your ob though.

It's hard to tell. If it's your water, more than likely there will be a big gush in your future. When my water broke the first time, it felt like I was constipated, but couldn't/didn't need to go. Then my water broke (kind of felt like a water balloon popping in my vagina) and I felt so much better. If you lie down and then stand back up and gush some more, it's most likely your water breaking.

Due to other symptoms I've been having, I wouldn't be so concerned. I've been having lots of back pain, poop pains, using the bathroom more frequently, nausea, and some other flu-like symptoms. I'm sort of going insane.

yes, it def feels like I am constipated! I feel like I need to go, but nothing is happening. then that started trickling out and then about a half cup size came out after the trickle while I was on the potty.

When my water broke, it was a gigantic amount. I seriously flooded the toilet. Sometimes though, the baby's head can plug up the hole a bit. That's why if you lay down, there should be a gush when you stand up again. I was always leaking and stuff afterwards. It was gross.
