Mine broke 7.30am in bed. I woke to a pop which I thought was just a kick. My mum called a minute later so I got up to talk to her and had to call her back as I wasn't sure if my waters broke or if I was wetting my pants.

About 40 minutes before I had Bub in my arms!
I was induced though they went to pop them as I was about to start pushing but they broke just as she pulled that needle out.. Obviously scared my body into doing it on its own

First was ARM. Second was in the couch watching The Block. Baby was born 36 hours later.

ARM for me. I had been in labour 24 hours and they were bulging but wouldn't break! Still took him another 12 hours to show up after breaking them.

Where did your waters break?
I thought I was having more practice contractions just like the several nights before. I went to bed, woke up to pee and nothing so I stood up and waters broke next to the toilet. Contractions really ramped up about an hour later and DS was born 7 hours after that.

Mine broke in the coffee shop of the hospital I was birthing at - I was being induced so hubby dropped me at the front entrance whilst he parked the car and in I walked. It was Friday 8am so peak hour at the coffee shop and mine burst with a big gush - fluid everywhere!! Puddle on the floor, all over my pants - I was mortified!!!! And being on my own made it so much worse... I then headed towards the bathroom and literally gushed some more every step I took...!

My waters broke in the birth pool 2 hours before ds was born. Labour had started spontaneously 11 hours before.

I was always scared of it happening in the supermarket - I'm not sure why there. Particularly when I was in labour at the gym twice and nothing happened - probably just fortunate!

Mine didn't break at all. DS was born within his birth sack (caul) and it burst open as DH grabbed him and lifted him out of the water during our water birth

#1 - broke on the bed in the birth suite at 3am. I'd been having strong contractions 3min apart for 12hrs but was only about 3-4cm. I got an epidural just before 3am and as soon as it started working my waters broke and and I started progressing. Yay epidural!
#2 - ARM after gel.
No dramatic stories here! With #2 I remember walking around the shops at 40+2 and practically begging my body to go into labour. I would have been so excited if my waters broke and would not have cared where I was - I wanted off the pregnancy ride!!
