Did your water break.. if so, where!

Okay Mamas.. anyone who knows me on here, knows that ISH is about to get real.. aka.. my baby is coming any day now! My current paranoia is... my water breaking while like... RUNNING ERRANDS? DRIVING?

Ah!

Did your water break on it's own? If so, where? If so.. what all went down? hahaha! That pun was totally intended!

    Not dumb! Labor can start without your water breaking. My labor LITERALLY came out of no where. I didn't even have braxton pains but I woke up at 12:45am with full on contractions. They were 5 minutes apart and 30-60sec long from the beginning. My doctor had to break my water over 12 hrs later when I stalled a bit at 7cm.

    In fact, my aunt's water didn't break until she was pushing! The water breaking can jump start labor because your body knows the baby can't stay in there for long with out their waterbed, but it doesn't have to happen in order for labor to start.

      Mine broke at 1.30 am at home. I woke up because wanted to go to the bathroom really bad with a full bladder. 2 hours later again..and again, so for me it was like an urgency to go to the bathroom every 2 hours. I didn't expect it to happened because i was due 3 weeks later. However, I called my OB doctor in the morning and she suggested to come and see her right away. She found out that I was leaking amniotic fluid and sent me to the hospital. At 11.25 a.m my son was born healthy and happy. (:

        My water broke in bed. Luckily we had gotten a mattress protector, just in case this happened, as we'd heard that while it happens more often than not while lying in bed. I had gotten up to use the bathroom, went back to bed, lay down, hubby got up to use bathroom, he lay back down and then suddenly I felt this huge GUSH between my legs! What an experience! lol!

            I don't have one single friend that has had their water break like in the movies. Lol. Not one. Most of their water broke after they were experiencing contractions.
            I think the biggest misconception is that it's a flood gate of goo. Though I'm sure that can happen, it's actually a trickle. Not a bucket. I've not once heard the ol, at the grocery store then flooded story and I've heard a LOT of stories. Lol
            But... I understand your fear.
            Two things... One... To make yourself feel better, carry a towel and change of clothes. A small towel in your purse ... Just to feel better.
            Two. I don't think that you'll care that much when it happens. You think u will but I'm pretty sure your adrenaline and excitement and nerves will take away any embarrassment of it.
            Also... Lets say you do have a woosh and flood gates happen in target... It's all going to be part of your story!!!! And it will be fun to tell after!!!!
            We all have some thing that happened at that moment And it just makes it unique.
            Yay Meg!!!

                  I had my ob appointment and ultrasound appointment on back to back days. I somehow had the times backward and showed up to my OB at 10am December 18. Afterwards we went shopping and than to O'Charley's for lunch we got back in the car to drive across the parking lot to Walmart. ((1:45pm) My appointment was suppose to be at 2pm) I got into Walmart and as i'm crossing the baby aisle i felt a trickle. i freaked because i was afraid i pottied myself. after 6 hours of trickling I finally went to the hospital (still no contractions ) at 4:15am on December 19 I had Scarlet Jade.
