Around midnight I woke up to a tiny gush and when I went to the bathroom I saw my little pad was soaked through with clear liquid. Put on a new one and eent back to bed. Same thing happened right away. Since then I moved up to some bigger pads and have soaked through 3. Having a few minor contrax but nothing intense. Hoping things pick up or I'm able to go back to sleep. My mom is on alert and she thinks it was definitely my waters breaking. Thoughts? I didn't feel a 'pop' or anything but there's been a fair amount of fluid. And it's clear, I know it's not urine.

Sounds like it. I can't think of anything else it could be.

Good luck to you!!! I hope you are able to rest and then have a quick and smooth birth.

sounds like me with DS1. I just recently learned that depending on where the sac breaks it can reseal itself again. certainly sounds like your baby is already well engaged and probably sealing off your cervix quite well, so only small amounts of water come out.
for me it took more than 48 hours for labor to start, so don't get impatient. just stay clear of hospitals for now and avoid VEs.

good luck and sending ELVs your way!

Thanks for the input y'all. I was able to go back to sleep for a while so that was good! No major contrax yet. Called my midwife group and the one on-call pretty much told me what I was going to do. I'm going to go walk a bunch at the park and drink tons of water. Maybe some nip stimulation too. She wants me to call back at noon and let them know how I'm doing. Off to walk!! Thanks for all the well-wishes!!

Hope you don't have to wait too long.

It does sound like your water. I must say my water broke just like yours, I never hear pops and my water broke for my 2 pregnancies. I did not go into labor though until after 46 hours for the my 1st and 60 hours for my 2nd.

YAY! Sounds like this is it! YAY! For five days early instead of 10 days late!

That's pretty much exactly what happened with me this time. Kept soaking pads overnight, but never felt a pop. He was born the next night at 1am
