Dd1 I was pushing her out as it exploded out all over the midwife
Dd2 broken by doc at hospital (6cm and membranes were 'bulging') she arrived about 40 mins later.
DS was kneeling on the floor at home with a horrendous contraction when I felt like I wet my pants.. Ambos arrived about 5 minutes later and said they weren't fully broken but DS arrived (in the ambulance) without too much further leakage about 20 mins later

I was getting ready for bed at 12 midnight and they gushed out.
Contractions started not long after that and DS was born at 2.30 am.
He was 2 weeks early.

I was in the car (passenger) on the way to the hospital. I had been bleeding earlier that morning so already had a pad on, which stopped the water from going everywhere

Baby 1, 2 and 3 all broke at hospital during labour. DD1 ARM, DS1 broke on the toilet about 30-45mins before birth and DD2 waters broke as her head was crowning.
Baby 4 waters broke in bed asleep. Went to the toilet around 3am, nothing was happening. Woke up suddenly at 4am and was mortified because I thought I'd peed myself! As soon as I stood up and it kept gushing I knew it was my waters though. Contractions started about an hour later but I didn't go into full labour right away and DS2 ended up being born 35 hours later
I'm currently 39+6 with number 5 and interested to see what happens!

DS1, While i was in Labour, it was an ARM. It gushed everywhere
DS2, I was sitting on the toilet in the hospital, i had been in labour for 1hr 45min. They exploded everywhere. No pop, trickle or gush. They literally exploded, all up the wall, onto the floor, everywhere. They were dark green and really thick (mec stained). DS was born 45min later.

#1 - Getting out of bed in the morning - small trickle - very confusing.
#2 - Doctor had just told me to go home and pack because my waters were bulging at 35 weeks. Got up from the table and gushed all over his office floor - I was horrified and embarrassed. He just said "I told you so".
#3 - Broken in hospital at 37 wks.
#4 - Felt sick all night - got up to have a shower and "POP" - not very much.
#5 - At a friends house playing poker with about 30 people. Bit of a puddle which the lady home owner very discreetly took care of. I tried to keep it quiet but my husband yelled out "Leanne's waters just BROKE!!!". Everyone cheered and clapped - the women fussed and the men looked terrified I was going to have the baby on a poker table.
#6 - Had polyhydramnios - made it to hospital at 37 weeks and had my waters ruptured and then the doctor did a slow release by holding her fingers over the tear. Soaked through 3 towels - the water was rushing off the bed like a waterfall!
#7 - 31 weeks - leaking all day from hind waters. Then they broke beside my hospital bed after I was told it could take weeks for anything to happen. Stood there crying, standing in a lake of water when the middie came in. Ended in abrupted placenta and my 3lb baby boy.

1st baby: I was induced and once 10cm dilated my OB broke my waters manually (big gush)
2nd baby: Waters partially broke at home at 8am after I got up out of bed, thankfully I made it to the tiled floor! It was only a trickle though and I thought I may have wee'd myself but it was clear and slippery (OB said it was a hind water leak), Then they fully broke at 11pm that night (in hospital, lying on bed with period pain like cramps) felt a big pop and then huge gush of water.
