I had to have mine broken by my OB in hospital both times.

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.

In hospital 10cm dialated. DS was born 40 minutes later - very clean I might add

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.
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.
#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
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).

1st 2 broken in hosp
3rd at home needed a wee (or so I thought )got up made it to the toilet, and woosh, lots of fluid. The contractions started imm. Grabbed some towels went to loungeroom, wooosh even more fluid, under 2 hours #3 was here.
First 2 were about 11 hours each

DS - Woke up in the middle of the night to go to the toilet, waters broke then, very convenient
DD - When I was 9-10cm dilated and in hospital.
Posted 04 September 2008 - 08:22 AM
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!
Posted 07 September 2008 - 09:26 PM
#1 No idea! We arrived at the hospital with me in labour to be told they had already broken?!
#2 In the hospital car park!
#3 broken by Dr in birthing suite.
I'm so scared that they'll break this time when i'm taking my kids to school/kindy!

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.
Posted 15 September 2008 - 02:53 PM
dd1- whilst having contractions in the birthing suite.
on the loo (how convenient ) over 2 weeks earlyditto!

DS - 40wks + 6. broke without warning, just about to sit down on the computer.
DD - 40wks. Broke in the birthing pool. 22mins b4 she was born...they broke and my body started pushing, very weird feeling.
Posted 16 September 2008 - 11:12 AM
DD1 - I stood up after having a nice nap (oh those were the days!) and woosh! Out they came! I wonder who cleaned that up...
DD2 - I was in labour, leaning on the back of the couch at The Birthing Centre.
Posted 17 September 2008 - 12:15 PM
DS1 - On the bed at the Birth Centre, accidentally broken by midwife while having an internal.
DS2 - in the shower at hospital, Ds born within 2 minutes.
D? - I haven't even thought about it but might just go and put a waterproof sheet on the bed and in the car asap!!
Posted 21 September 2008 - 11:28 PM
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 .

1st - DD broke in bed. Had just got up to pee, got back into bed and drifted off when gush... ruined the mattress! lol She was born 12 hours later.
2nd - DS1 - no idea. Had meconium show but can't remember any waters breaking.
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.

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 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 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..... Would have been handy to have packed my bag too
oh - and by some MIRACLE I didn't wet the bed at all!! 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
Hmmm might get that plastic liner out.... but then again I would REALLY like a new bed
