My water broke spontaneuosly at the very start of labour. It was actually quite funny. I had placed a vinyl tablecloth on the bed weeks before - just in case. I got out of bed to go to the bathroom and thought there may have been a trickle. I moved around to see if more would come out and nothing... so I thought I was imagining things. The second I went back to bed and sat down whoosh. Made me laugh and the more I laughed the more water there was. Thank goodness for the tablecloth.

For a friend of mine who has had 3 homebirths her waters broke spontaneously at the start of all three labours. From what I understand the water breaks spontaneously at the start of labour in about 30% of women.
