    I'm due on Wednesday but my waters have broke about 2 hours ago. Fluid is all clear/very faint pink but there is quite a lot of it so I think it might be full waters (filled 2 maternity pads, is that a lot?) my first 2 births my waters didn't go until the midwife examined me at 8cm or something when I was high on gas and air lol so this is a new experience. I am having no pain at all! (which is annoying as i have been getting fairly painful braxton hicks for weeks!) As it is almost 1 am and the delivery suite aren't answering the phone! Do I need to go in or do you think I can try and get some sleep at home first? Baby is moving around still it's just strange because I don't feel as full and stretched!

    I would go in. Once your water breaks its no longer a sterile environment for the baby. Good luck!!

    Yes always go in/call when waters break. They will let you know what to do.
