Well I've had two babies now and what you describe is exactly the way it happened both times for me. A little bit of unexpected wetness and "I really don't think I just peed myself." Within 30-60 minutes or so a lot more would come out and contractions would start, but I never had a big obvious gush.

Happy birthing!

Hi,

That happened to me with DS also. But I did have a gush after a few minutes though. I guess if it continues it is your water. If it stopped maybe it closed back up, I have heard of it doing so.

I was having a HB so my Midwife came with sometype of strip thing that. I think you can touch the vagina to check although you are not to put anything in it, I touched it with the strip. I could have pressed it in the cloth pad I was wearing since the water was dripping in there. Sending you good birthing vibes (oh I didn't have any contractions until 46 hours after my water broke and then DS was born in 2 hours)

Hope this is it for you!

Not sure about the waters. Both times mine was dramatic with a huge pop and gush just before pushing.

Does it have a smell? Is it clear?

I've read that amniotic fluid smells kind of like semen, while pee smells like, well, pee.

Good luck!

Can you check on your own to see if your water has broken? With litmus paper? I've had a constant...trickle since last night, but I don't want to go to the doctor if I'm just extra...juicy today.
