Over the weekend we took a little mini-vacation to a huge indoor water park. It occurred to me as I was sitting in the wave pool, waves crashing on my bump and all — crap, how do I know if my water breaks in here? Of course, I am way to0 early for my water to break (17 weeks) but I was doing a lot and with my history … well, you just never know. Especially since my water has never broken naturally.
I immediately jumped out of the pool to Google. I know, gotta love Google. And now? I am fully educated thanks to the many websites I browsed over the weekend to learn just how you know your water has broken. You would think after 4 littles I would know — but honestly, I really didn’t. It’s always been a very large gush for me on the hospital bed. Note to self: Don’t go to a water park in your last month of pregnancy.
Read on to see how you know when your water breaks, what to expect, and just what to do!
Chime in: Where did your water break? Were you worried you weren’t going to know your water broke?
