    My last 2 pregnancies they broke my water in the hospital. However this time I have a fear of it breaking in public somewhere. I found out yesterday I'm 3cm dialated with really not having much cramps or anything...however I do feel LOTS of pressure down there from LO engaging, especially when I walk. Today I was at the swimming pool and sitting in the lounge chair I had awful sharp shooting pains in my bits. Sometimes it feels like she's gonna reach her hand right out and break the waters herself!!!

    I'm the type of person who doesn't like attention on me...so if my waters breaks in public I'd be embarassed. Not that I could help it, and I'm sure people would understand...but still don't want it to happen!! LOL


    Have any of you had your waters broken in places other than the hospital?

    oh gosh...how did your dad react to that?! LOL I'd be more comfortable having it break at home...although not sure how well my hubby would clean it while I'm gone at the hospital!?

    And while you were peeing in the bush!!! LOL

    My waters with my 3 children have all been broken in hospital. I would die if they went out in public or even in my friends or family's house.

    With my first I spent most of my labour at my aunts house, she had just had new sofa so covered it all in binbags just incase.

    Luckily they never went lol,

    mine broke on the living room carpet while my mom (who used to be a midwife) was feeling my belly to see if baby was engaged!!

    I am terrified of them breaking in public this time especially as between 38-39 weeks I will be travelling on public transport every day.. my worst nightmare!
