You know...the cliche labor scene depicted in movies/TV, where the first sign of labor is the gush, and then all hell breaks loose?
Well, my water broke at 2am and it's been slowly leaking ever since (mainly b/c I've been sleeping and wasn't upright). I was Googling this in bed while trying to force myself to sleep (really hard when your adrenaline is pumping!) and it seems only 1 out of 10 women have their water break first.
Contractions haven't gotten going. There's the occasional uterine tightening...but nothing steady and not at all painful. I guess basically just BH. Now that I'm upright, I'm hoping they become productive.
Anyway, I've read enough birth stories where it seems that women who are in active labor with their bag intact have really intense/painful contractions after the water breaks. So I'm wondering what my contractions are going to feel like from the start! What have you 1 out of 10 ladies experienced? Also, would it make labor relatively shorter? (*fingers crossed*)
