Mine broke whilst in hospital but they broke on their own.. i was being induced and had a pessary and i went to get out of bed oncthe night and it just felt like a pop and a gush. Bit tmi but a gush like when you get a gush of cm. But obviously more of it. It was a little puddle on the floor and kind of came out in pulses. Lol x
I wasn't even sure if mine had gone. It was the fore waters not hind waters but I woke up in the night and my leg pillow was a bit damp so I though maybe I was just getting sweaty. The next morning I was starting to think my waters was slowly leaking but also thought it could be a lot of watery CM. Later that day I had a consultant appointment and she confirmed my waters had gone. When they broke my hind waters in hospital I felt a huge gush though.
From what I can gather some people get a very slow loss and some get a huge gush.
For Logan, I was in bed and just woke up thinking "need to pee!!" and ran to the bathroom leaking EVERYWHERE Then started getting back labour and L born 50 hours later (induced in the end as failed to progress past 8-9cm). Leaked for the day after they broke though.
For Eric, they broke on their own in hosp in labour. Hind waters only. Then started to need to push not long after and the rest went when pushing (10 mins pushing)
Mine went before contractions even started, I was only 35 weeks. Stood to go to the loo and got a huge gush-wasn't even sure what it was at first! After initial gush it leaked for a while!! Sorry TMI, went to the hospital and within a few hours labour had fully begun! It scares me even thinking about it!!
With amelie I stood up to go for a wee and they broke. No warning at all and no contractions until an hour later.
With roman I have no idea where my waters went. They were bulging when I got a sweep (mw joked shed need to be careful not to burst them) and 3 days later 8cm dilated and first exam they were gone. I reckon i had a slow leak for days since the sweep.
Both times, my water broke before labor started.
With DS1 i was totally NOT expecting it - at all. I woke up in the middle of the night to pee and whilist peeing i felt some other water drip (that sounded a lot more than just urine lol). but it didn't hurt at all. and it was only leaky (not like a huge gush) so at first i wasn't sure if that was my water or not but then i stood up and it kept coming out and thats when i figured it out. It didn't hurt at all. it was painless and i wasn't expecting it and had no suspicion whatsoever of it going to happen.
With DS2 it was quite the opposite. The night before it happened i felt like *something* was buldging "down there". It didn't hurt. there wasn't any pain or discomfort, it just felt like....sorta like there was a water balloon near my cervix. It's hard to explain. So that started the evening before (like maybe 9pm ish). Then around 7:30am the next day, i woke up and was talking to DH as he was getting dressed. Told him i would meet him downstairs and i roll over (before he left the room) and i feel this pop (no pain, no discomfort), and then all of a sudden my water gushes EVERYWHERE onto the bed. It actually kind of felt good when it happened lol. And it was A LOT of water-no leaking like it was with DS1. Just huge gushes.
it didn't hurt either time. I sorta suspected it was going to happen with DS2 bc of the way i felt the night before (with the buldging) but i never expected nor felt any different with DS1.
