Question about water breaking...

curlyninercurlyniner Posts: 130Registered Users
Can a baby actually kick you hard enough to cause your water to break? I know the odds of my water spontaneously breaking are slim, but this little girl is *killing* me with her Riverdance moves. Sort of like :blob5: on my hip bone and cervix.

    Why do you think spontaneous rupture of membranes is rare? Something like 1/3 of all full-term labors start with SROM. All of my labors started that way, so I never had to fight with the hospital about artificially rupturing them...because it was already ruptured.

    I don't think baby-kicking is what breaks it though.

    I dunno, I always heard it was unlikely (to have your water break before anything else, like contractions or whatnot). *shrug* I know once contractions start then pretty much anything is fair game. I don't feel anywhere close to actually going into labor, I just keep thinking this little one is going to kick a hole in my uterus. :lol:

    Mine never broke/leaked with my first (even at 10cm) because her head was plugging everything up. When I got to the hospital, the midwife kept asking me "Are you sure it hasn't broken?" Um, I don't think I would miss that... :?

    Don't be so sure I had no idea my water broke with number 2. I had tons of (yes this is nasty) mucus stuff coming out of me so much so that I had to wear a pad not a liner a pad the hospital told me if I filled the bad in an hour to come in that never happened when I finally went into the hospital the nurse checked me and said "wow you do have a lot of stuff coming out of ya" an hour later when the Dr. checked me she said "did you feel a big gush of fluid" I said no whe said I think your water broke and that was it we never had a for sure time when it happened because I never had the big gush of fluid like I did with my first one.

    Mine broke during active labour, right before we left for the hospital. When I was checked about 1/2 an hour later or so, I was 5-6 cm.

    I read that only 10% of women have their water break before contractions start.

    My water "leaked" and it took me literally hours to know what was happening and go to the hospital. When I got there, I was only fingertip dilated. If not for the monitor, I wouldn't have known I was having contractions. At that point, they were nothing more than cramps.

    Mine broke before my contractions started, but there was no huge gush. It was a very odd internal sort of sensation that woke me up at 6am. It was almost like I heard/felt a popping of some sort. Then I felt liquid oozing out.

    When I went to the hospital, they couldn't get the little paper to turn blue, so they tried to convince me that I had peed on myself and wasn't in real labor. My husband dipped the paper (after the first nurse left to get another nurse), and it turned blue right away.

    I couldn't help but add to this thread that's already a couple of weeks old b/c my water broke w/o any contractions. And I mean it was gushing all over the place. Mind you though, I had extreme chills and had to sit in front of a heater. It happened a week after the baby's due date, so she was full-term and all. It took a few hours before my OB/GYN decided I needed to be induced since I still didn't go into active labor on my own (after my cervix was dilated enough after being artificially ripened earlier).

    Had no idea this was rare, but I guess it was nice to go to the hospital knowing I was going into labor, but not being in "active labor" with any contractions just yet......

    I also read that only 10% of women have their water break. I thought it was funny when I read it because so many TV show labors start with water breaking.

    I guess it makes for better TV than diarrhea. :lol:
