Question about water breaking...

Can a baby actually kick you hard enough to cause your water to break? I know the odds of my water spontaneously breaking are slim, but this little girl is *killing* me with her Riverdance moves. Sort of like on my hip bone and cervix.

hahaha i know what you mean! i thought majerle was going to kick my bladder right out of me!

but i have no idea. youre almost there though! yay you and baby!
Why do you think spontaneous rupture of membranes is rare? Something like 1/3 of all full-term labors start with SROM. All of my labors started that way, so I never had to fight with the hospital about artificially rupturing them...because it was already ruptured.

I don't think baby-kicking is what breaks it though.
I dunno, I always heard it was unlikely (to have your water break before anything else, like contractions or whatnot). *shrug* I know once contractions start then pretty much anything is fair game. I don't feel anywhere close to actually going into labor, I just keep thinking this little one is going to kick a hole in my uterus.

Mine never broke/leaked with my first (even at 10cm) because her head was plugging everything up. When I got to the hospital, the midwife kept asking me "Are you sure it hasn't broken?" Um, I don't think I would miss that...

Mine broke during active labour, right before we left for the hospital. When I was checked about 1/2 an hour later or so, I was 5-6 cm.

I read that only 10% of women have their water break before contractions start.

My water "leaked" and it took me literally hours to know what was happening and go to the hospital. When I got there, I was only fingertip dilated. If not for the monitor, I wouldn't have known I was having contractions. At that point, they were nothing more than cramps.

When I went to the hospital, they couldn't get the little paper to turn blue, so they tried to convince me that I had peed on myself and wasn't in real labor. My husband dipped the paper (after the first nurse left to get another nurse), and it turned blue right away.
3b/c normally, 3a/b in the winter

I couldn't help but add to this thread that's already a couple of weeks old b/c my water broke w/o any contractions. And I mean it was gushing all over the place. Mind you though, I had extreme chills and had to sit in front of a heater. It happened a week after the baby's due date, so she was full-term and all. It took a few hours before my OB/GYN decided I needed to be induced since I still didn't go into active labor on my own (after my cervix was dilated enough after being artificially ripened earlier).

Had no idea this was rare, but I guess it was nice to go to the hospital knowing I was going into labor, but not being in "active labor" with any contractions just yet......
I also read that only 10% of women have their water break. I thought it was funny when I read it because so many TV show labors start with water breaking.

Geeky is my hero. She's the true badass. The badass who doesn't even need to be a badass. There aren't enough O's in cool to describe her.
