No no, mine didn't break -- but I am curious if the baby making all these HUGE friggin movements (feels like he is rolling all over the place -- its actually painful!) would make the water break.

I don't even think I know how water breaks in the first place lol.

i've wondered the same thing, but figured since i had never heard of it happening, that it wasn't anything to worry about.

but yeah, i don't know how the water breaks either??

That's a pretty good question and unfortunately I cannot give you an accurate answer. But in my honest opinion, I wouldn't think so. Caiden moves around a lot, in fact he's so active that he keeps me up at night on occasion. I would think that if his constant movements were to break my water, it would have happened a while ago. But that's just my

I think the amniotic sac is a pretty tough membrane meant to withstand the vigorous movements of a fetus. Think about it, they use that sharp little hook to rupture it artificially, and it takes a great deal of pressure in labor to make it rupture on it's own.

But we have some tough little babies in this group, LOL!

Nope baby isn't going to break a normal healthy bag of water, its very supported by the uterus. Now IF you were dilated past 5 cm and baby was breach and kicking your bag where your cervix is at (no uterus to support it) it COULD break it then....but at 5cm your usually in active labor already anyway.

^^^^pressure with no support. Your cervix is opened (even a little) and your uterus is squeezing in getting smaller---the water takes the path of least resistance.

Your bag is stronger then what you think---it actually takes a bit to pop those puppies on purpose---have you seen the hooks they use at the hospital---they are JUST like a crochet hooks!

Side note: My last pregnancy I didn't experience my water breaking. Even when in labor. They are not sure what happened but they think that maybe it was a slow leak, and her head came down and blocked the hole? This is the reason they didn't know there was meconium present. I did ask the midwife if it broke at one pt because I felt a "pop" and she checked and said no. WEIRD.

So yeah.... water breaking... foreign topic here! I kinda want it to break just to say "Honey, my water broke!" : P Dork I know.
