    do you always know when your waters break? I'm worried that I would go swimming sometime nearer my due date and my waters would go while I'm in the pool - would I notice?

    I always thought when your waters go you know it. Like if you pee'd in the bath you'd know right? I think it's the same sensation but a lot of water. Some women leak a little bit then have a WHOOSH.

    They had to break my waters too but because I was worried about the same thing when pregnant, the MW told me that even if they do break, they will continue to leak as the waters are constantly reproduced. Plus swimming is so good when pregnant it is a such a shame not to go in case they break!

    My sisters broke while she was in the bath and she new about it. I don't think you'll miss it if it happens while your swimming!! Unless it's just a trickle of course - but then you'll be aware of the rest of it later.

    I felt mine go but it wasn't a whoosh, more just constantly trickling out. I think you'd know if they went while swimming x

    Mine started trickling at home and I did not notice.
    When it started gushing out there is no way I couldn't notice.

    Thank you ladies, I guess I'm just worried because I have an incompetant cervix and am a Group B Strep carrier so need to be in hospital as soon as my waters start to break as I need to be on antibiotics straight away and I'm likely to have a quick labour - I hope the water doesn't go a funny colour in the pool (although at least I'd know they'd gone!!!!!)
