I was induced with my first pregnancy, but my water broke on it's own at 5cm. And I can tell you it was a gush. I was laying in bed, talking to my Mom. I didn't hear a pop, but all of a sudden it just felt like a dam broke between my legs. I just kept saying "eww... eww". It was just like I had peed myself, but like a lot
Also, I wanted to let you ladies know that your water doesn't have to break. Babies can be born in the caul with membranes still in tact. This is very prestigious and carries a lot of good luck in many cultures. Your care provider or you, simply peal back the membranes when the baby is born to allow the first breath when the cord stops pulsating. It's called, lifting the veil.
I was asleep too! I was a week late, and I woke up and my underwear felt wet. At first I thought I had an accident! I still wasn't even quite sure until I got to the hospital (for an already scheduled pre-induction appt.) and they checked. Not dramatic at all!
