Water breaking Heaven blessed 3 kids; 6 angel babies; Seaside, Oregon 6247 posts

So I was laying down on the couch. And I suddenly felt like a bubble build up in my vagina, and than an oozing feeling. I felt down there and my panties were a little damp. I went to the bathroom and I mean you could barely see the spot but still damp. It was obviously clear and had a sweet chlorine type smell. I peed just a little just this feeling was totally different than peeing. And my normal every day to day discharge has been non-existant for two days until just now. And on the way back from the bathroom I swear I could feel trickling but when I looked there was nothing. So now I'm just laying down and seeing what happens. 

What did it feel like when your water broke?

Like a pop then a gush of water after that!! I didnt have my water broken until 8cms when I was in the hospital! Doctor didnt mean to break my water but did it when he checked to see how dilated I was. I thoguht my water broke earlier in my labour but I just peed myself I guess but I could have sworn it was my water!! I experienced the same thing you did but it wasn't. I would go get checked though just in case it is.

It could have been the fore bag that broke with you. With ds I had two full bags of water due to starting with twins but losing one early on. So I had the classic movie gush and splash lol, than when I got to the hospital my doctor was shocked to see another bag after the amount that I lost. And told me what happened lol. And with dd I peed myself a lot towards the end so when my water broke, a tiny gush when standing up I convinced myself it was just me peeling myself even though I knew better. I went in the next morning when I started bleeding! So you would think I would know but hey :)

When my water broke it was in gushes and spaced apart. It was a strange feeling like peeing my pants without peeing. It took an hour or two after the original gush for all the fluid to be gone. I mean I drove myself to the hospital and was at l&d  for an hour before it stopped

My water broke at home and I had just stood up from peeing. It felt like I was peeing down my legs but I didnt have the actual feeling of peeing.
