    Hi I can't help directly as mine trickled and I was awake (thought I'd wee'd myself).

    But from about 35 weeks I slept with a picnic rug under the fitted sheet. So the theory was the picnic rug has a plastic back, so the fluid wouldn't ruin my new, expensive (well for us it was), comfy mattress.

    In labour, in the bath at some point for me (didn't feel them go). Was 7cm when I hopped in so it was somewhere after that.

    I was watering the garden! Lol.

    I was 41+4, had had a S&S at 3om that day, then went home and started dinner, a roast. So while taht was cooking I went out to water the plants. I couldn't be a**rsed dealing with the hose so I grabbed a dog bowl and started scooping from teh pond lol.

    As I bent down to get my first scoop... *twang* I felt them go, they gushed like a big wee. I stood there for about 3 minutes just going omg ITS HAPPENING!!!!

    Then I called DH, who said well done! Like I'd made a cake or something

    yup - we had one .. it has PVC on the back .. and terry type material on the top ... we have one on EVERY bed in the house ... I was sleeping on that .. but I had also put several towels on top

    I am glad i did - because with DS1 the waters broke rather dramatically - you can get them just from Target ... well worth the money!

    In bed in the middle of the night. The big gush woke me and boy did i move faster than ever before!
    The ob said that it is much more likely to happen when you are asleep/ lying down because when you are moving around upright the baby's head acts like a plug.

    5 times they were broken in labour by the midwives. Once they broke as I stood up off the loo at my pastors house. At least I didn't need to do a big clean up.

    Artificially Ruptured Membranes. Means they were broken in hospital with what looks like a giant crochet hook rather than bursting/breaking spontaneously.
