DD1 - In bed at 1.00am Sunday morning - I woke when I felt a tiny trickle and managed to make it to the ensuite without spilling a drop on the floor. As soon as I sat down on the toilet it all gushed out.

DD2 - Hind waters broke at home in bed, 1.00am Sunday morning again. The midwife broke the rest of the sack at hospital as it was bulging through my cervix apparantly. All I can say is thank goodness they didn't break properly at home or in the car because there was SO much fluid that there was a waterfall off the end of the hospital bed on to the floor. Even the midwife said she had never seen so much fluid in her life.

Mine was nothing really eventful. I felt a slight trickle at 3am on the morning of DDs birth, went to the toilet thinking I was wetting myself but it sure wasn't pee. No monumental gush, but a friend that had her baby a week after mine was. She is part owner of a veterinary surgery, and she was needling a puppy for a client she didn't know very well. It was two weeks to go before her due date, and then whoosh, all over the floor, my friend and her clients shoes! She wasn't impressed!

DS#1 - they broke at 3.30am Monday after 23 hours of contractions. There was so little fluid I just thought the force of a contraction had made me wet myself. There was no continuing trickling so even the midwives weren't sure they had broken. It was only when the OB tried to break them but couldn't and said she couldn't feel the membrane that they figured they must already have gone. The next time fluid came out was about 12.30pm. It wasn't til my sister was in labour 8 months later that I realised when mine had broken.  wacko.gif

DS#2 - in hospital for stage one of induction. That was a decent gush and kept trickling the whole labour.

DS#3 - while pushing him out, all over the floor between my legs (I birthed standing up). The midwives just threw a few towels and an absorbant 'kylie' over it so they weren't kneeling in a big puddle.  laugh.gif

#4 - hopefully not in bed/car/shops as my last 2 have been big gushes. There was no pre-warning with #3.

Sitting on the toilet. Handy  biggrin.gif

Woke up at midnight needing to wee, sat down and pop went the waters. I was half asleep and thought it was a very big wee at first (it was almost 4 weeks before the due date so wasnt thinking of that yet).

DS: in hospital by OB during labour when I was 6cm (with the aim of speeding labour/delivery up ... which it did.

DD: again in hospital (by OB) just as she was being delivered.

Both times they broke in bed without any warning.  I managed to get the bathroom before any leaked out into the bed thank god, it was a quick dash!

#1 No idea! We arrived at the hospital with me in labour to be told they had already broken?! unsure.gif

#2 In the hospital car park!

DD1 - induced, had no idea waters had broken. Must have been a very slow trickle onto the pads I was already wearing.

DD2&3 (twins) - at home on the toilet.  biggrin.gif

All three of mine broke just before it was time to push. Two on their own and one via Ob. We had the bed, couches and cars covered in plastic each time biggrin.gif .

3rd & 4th - DS2 & DS3 - hospital. huge gush for DS4.. doctor was wearing raincoat type of thing.. how did he know? lol

DS4 - will let you know in a couple of weeks... I carry a lot of fluid so it could get messy.  tongue.gif

DS -  10 days o/due - In hospital, I was induced and they broke these to 'get things moving'....

DD - In bed 4 days before my PLANNED C/SEC ohmy.gif was in such denial I assumed that for the first time EVER I had wet myself. I cleaned myself up and put myself back to bed roll2.gif 40 minutes later back up as I needed to pee (again) and realised I had wet myself THOROUGHLY again.... you would have thought that since I noticed I had 'lost my plug' when I cleaned myself up the first time that I would have realised what was going on..... unsure.gif Would have been handy to have packed my bag too laughing2.gif

oh - and by some MIRACLE I didn't wet the bed at all!! ohmy.gif Not quite sure how I achieved this as I went through 7 pads, two pairs of PJ pants, 2 tracksuit pants and 4 towels before we made it to the hospital laughing2.gif

Hmmm might get that plastic liner out.... but then again I would REALLY like a new bed dev (6).gif
