ddcc...

 

My water broke with both of my last two pregnancies. Like you said, there was an initial gush then it would continue to spurt sporadically. I think I wore a cloth prefold because I never knew how much was going to come out. Mine was always either clear or just slightly tinged pink and almost smelled sweet. 

 

FWIW, the first time my water broke, it was 37 hrs till I went into labour - babe was born 42 hrs after water broke. The second time, it only took 18 hrs to go into labour and babe was born 4.5 hrs later.

 

Keep drinking water and don't put anything in your vagina. Your fluid will continue to replenish itself. Happy birthing!!!!!

Good luck momma!  I am so happy for you!  I have had the same thought, what happens when your water breaks during some intimate times!thumb.gif Enjoy your birth and sending you lots of resting vibes for now and get active labor vibes for when it kicks in!  It is good to be a rare breed!
