My waters have broken!

post #1 of 34
Thread Starter 
At 2:45 I was standing in my mom's living room and POP, my water broke, first one big gush, leaking when i am laying down and just a little comes out when I am standing.Oh boy, the contraction are very mild,only 7 minutes apart. My MW said to call when they are 3 minutes apart. We sent my dad and DH to see XMEN and we are walking( me, mom and my sisters).Please send quick, wonderful birthing vibes,

Wow! Sending you tons of happy, gentle birthing vibes!!!

That's how my first labor started, too. It was exciting after all those times I wondered how I would know when labor was starting. No questioning that one.

My doctor told me if my water breaks to go straight to the ER. He said I could get an infection if I didn't.

Good Luck though!!

Best Wishes!!

Don't worry about your water being broken you are very unlikely to get an infection, no worries there!!!!

HOW AWESOME!
Best of luck! Happy, gentle birthing!
I've been so scared my water would break again like that (like last time) because I went straight into HARD labor when it did... I didn't know it could pop and contrax could be gentle! You've just given me some much needed hope and comfort!

I didn't know infection was a concern until it had been broken for at least 24-hours?

I can't imagine why your doctor would tell you that - makes no sense at all.

Good luck with the birth, littlemama!

Good luck!

your risks of infection are slightly higher after 24 hours, but if you keep anyone and anything out of your vagina, you'll decrease those risks a lot. There is very little to worry about just go on birthin that baby!

Sending you Easy Labor Vibes!!!

When my water broke, I didn't start contractions until 10 hours later, and they were so mild that I didn't even realize they were contractions! It felt more like a tingling going across my belly - not even painful.

And as for infection... I agree with the PPs not to worry about it as long as you're keeping everyone and everything out of your vagina.

Ack, please read up on that. No reason to run to the er, not unless you want a whole bunch of interventions.


Good luck mama!

So exciting....feel like we're getting ready for our baby boom!

As said by so many others....infection simply because your water broke? PLEASE! Sounds like a real NCB-friendly doc to me! LOL

Good luck and please post again when you can!
