How do you know for sure that your water broke, can it happen before you have any pain?

How do you know for sure that your water broke, can it happen before you have any pain?

Yes it can.: Prelabor rupture of membranes is not rare and occurs pretty much without any warning or pain; a large gush of fluid (usually clear with a yellow tinge similar to dilute urine) wets your underwear and drips to the floor. It is usually mistaken for urinary incontinence episode, which is also not rare with advanced pregnancy. An examination by your obstetrician in the er will tell one way or another. ...Read more

Yes - not too much.: Preterm premature rupture of membranes is a dire complication of pregnancy when it occurs before 28-32 weeks. After that point, it is still a problem in need of urgent management in the hospital, however you should expect great outcomes for mom and baby with proper care and reasonably good luck! go to the hospital immediately for urgent care. ...Read more

Depends...: If your water breaks as a gush of about a quart of fluid, you'll notice. If it's a leak, you might not. But the leak will likely keep on trickling. The real key to this question is: how far along in your pregnancy are you? If you are pre-term, i.e., less than 37 weeks, call your doctor. If at term, see what develops. Likely, you'll start having contractions and be on your way soon. Good luck. Lg. ...Read more

Tough call..: I am sorry you had pprom around viability. I hope you are hospitalized and appropriately cared for by a maternal-fetal medicine specialist adjacent to a nicu on ampicillin/erythromycin and after Betamethasone and prn magnesium sulfate. I pray that your pregnancy continues until 32-34 weeks, but it probably won't. Keep a positive attitude and put your faith in god and your perinatal care team! ...Read more

Call doc if not sure: If there is a continuous watery discharge then your water may have broken and you should go to labor and delivery. If the discharge is mucous it may be your mucous plug. It is normal to pass this as your cervix opens. Many people will also leak small amounts of urine. If you are not sure though you should be evaluated by your doctor. ...Read more

Contractions?: If you're 37 weeks you probably still have a while to go. You can be 3 cm for days or weeks. Are you contracting? Was your last labor very fast? I would have a low threshold for heading into the hospital, but wait until you are leaking fluid or having more contractions. Good luck! ...Read more
