A major indicator of labor, some women experience, is when their water breaks. Movies and television show us that a woman standing and, all of a sudden, she will have a puddle around her feet. This is only somewhat true. Some women experience a complete flood of amniotic fluid gushing out.

What many women do not discuss is the “water” may continue to flow out for a while, especially as contractions happen.

For some women, they do not get a gush, but a little leak similar to a bladder leakage. It can be a slow process for these women and can last quite a bit of time before it stops. Water breaking can also come with sounds such as popping or crackling. Above all, the feeling is often warm, similar to urine.
