Silly question but how would I know if my waters break in the shower or bath? Ultimate fear since I am 1cm dilated at 34 weeks?

Not a silly question. After your shower or bath, dry off. See if you are leaking fluid from the vagina. When the water breaks, it can seem like a trickle, an unmistakable flood, or somewhere in between! You are right in questioning, because it's important to know the symptoms of pre-term labor. These include pain or tightening in your lower abdomen or back - along with a firmness of your uterus. All with a pattern!
