Has my water broken?

So I got up to go to the toilet ten mins ago, as I was sat I felt a sort of ‘pop’ or ‘click’ sensation.

I thought I had finished but as I stood up a small gush of water comes out and on to the floor, I quickly sit back down but it seems to have stopped /be dripping barely any.

Could this be my waters? I don’t know whether to wait til morning to ring MAU if nothing has started by then, or ring now?

I’m currently 38+2.

Also to say since lying back in bed i seem to be slowly dripping a drip of liquid every so often and it doesn’t have a smell!

Sounds like waters breaking to me. Put a pad on so that midwives can check it (later) and for now get as much sleep as you can. Good luck!

My 3rd baby was my only non induced so I never knew what waters breaking felt like.
I'd been having "sensations"
At 40w+3
I was standing talking to my Mum and thought I had farted!
It was a pop.
Then the waters were running down my legs and my toddlers were asking if I was doing a pee pee.
Then me and my mum were cheering!!

The "pop" bit is your answer.
Here comes your baby!! Congratulations!

Yes they have
You have just perfectly described what happened to me.

Just keep in mind that they like baby out without a certain time period of the waters breaking. 20 years ago it was 40 hours.
Something to ask the midwife maybe so you know when to go in.

I'd say yes.

Maybe ring them to let them know as they like to have the baby out within a certain timeframe.
