Waters breaking.

I am 40 weeks and one, with my first child. I have been having quite bad back ache, and had a few pains in the stomach, hit and miss. But I have just been to the toilet, and when I finished passing urine I felt another leak of liquid. Is this my waters breaking ? Im really not sure. Thank you to anyone who can help.

I didn't want to leave you unanswered, Idon't know mine were broken for me and they gushed everywhere, this will bump for you until someone more knowledgable comes along......

it could be as depending on baby's position they can leak gradually as well as sudden gush. put a pad on and see what happens, good luck!

This is how my waters broke, I weed then sat for 20 minutes thinking "I don't think I'm weeing anymore!" I would wear a pad and see if that gets wet. I did go to hospital even though I didn't have contractions. They were about to send me home and contractions started 3 in 10minutes, thick and fast so I stayed. dd arrived 2 hours 5 minutes after my waters broke.

Hope it's all starting for you, maybe start getting ready... xx

I've heard you should check the smell as well - if it doesn't smell like pee, you might want to call the labour ward!

princessscrumpy when you was on the loo did it feel like a gush or more of a leak ? xxx

Sorry, just seen your message so probably a bit late - it was a constant stream, more than a trickle but less than a gush. I had a pot by the loo for doing samples in so I held that under to collect some to see if it was wee.... yes, I even smelled it and it wasn't wee. MW told me they hadn't broken but was proved wrong when dd was born shortly after and my waters didn't go - no, that would be because they already had (stupid mw).

Hope you're okay x
