    Yep! Getting ready for work this morning, bent over to get a towel out of a basket for the shower and I thought - 'God, did I just wee down my leg?!'. Thought nothing of it, got in shower and it felt like I was having a little bit of of a wee there too. Continued getting ready for work - it had then dawned on me that this could be my waters so got a maternity pad out out and put my make up on and blowed dried my hair. All the time I felt like I was having little wees! Had to change pad about 4 times before I got to work and then had quite a big gush at work so called the hospital.
    A lady from work took me to the hospital and midwife 'inspected me' and confirmed indeed my waters had broken..hubby had turned up in the meantime all very excited...!
    They monitored Bubba for half hour and could see my braxton hicks on the print out which was all good apparantly.
    Sent home until things really start to happen - apparantly 85-90% of woman go into natural labour within the first 24 hours of waters breaking. I'm booked in for my induction tomorrow afternoon at 4pm if nothing has happened...
    So I'm sitting here like a lemon eating cake and drinking tea and my waters are still trickling....
    Havent told anyone yet - we dont want the grandparents panicking just yet...!!
    I feel really, really frightened though... xx

    That's incredible! I really don't know what to expect. Sounds like it's been going on for ages though- exactly HOW much 'waters' do you have up there???!! :shock:

    Yeah I know, it still hasnt stopped but its like a trickle everytime I move. It's very odd - and then you just feel damp and uncomfortable! Nearly 9 hours now......

    Good luck! Hopefully not too long! My friend's waters broke at 7am and no contractions until about 3pm and then had her little girl by 8pm, which I don't think is too horrendous!
