I had a small tear and just kept having little gushes. I thought that was probably it, but didn't really "know." It did really break a few hours later, so then there was no question! I was 9 days early.

I'd go get checked out. Good luck!!!

thanks good luck to you too....like I said atleast call the doctor because I had my first at 9 days early I only knew I was in labor because my water leaked lol not completly broke just leaked lol..and I didnt feel my conntractions untill i was 6 cm....So better safe than sorry if you go too long with your water broke it can cause infection so no sex nothing lol untill your know!

Try laying down for a few minutes, and then get back up and see if it happens again? I've heard the baby's head can kind of plug a small tear.

Good luck!

yeah that what im going threw now but they said since shes so large it wont make a difference if I lay down because I have a hind tear where the tear is behind the babys head and only leaks when she moves enough for it to leak.

Oh, so you know there is a tear. Okay, I thought you were trying to figure out if you had a small tear or leaking something else.

I know that I have a tear but I believe the the other women is trying to figure out if her water had broke and I explained to her that it could be a tear that gets pluged by the babys head and the best bet is to go and have it checked.
