<p>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. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>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.</p>

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

They told me it would be very rare for my water to break before active labor a 2nd time... I guess I'm a rare breed!</div>

my water has broken before labor began for all EXCEPT my first.  <span><img alt="pinktongue.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/pinktongue.gif">  it is possible!</span></p>

<p>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!<img alt="thumb.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/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!</p>
