Usually it occurs all of a sudden and you may feel as if you have suddenly wet yourself. Sometimes, only some of the waters will leak, and you will find yourself losing smaller amounts of fluid especially during a contraction. It should be clearish in color and can be distinguished from urine by the odor. If the fluid becomes greenish in color, your baby may be in distress.

Answer It varies from person to person. My wife had all 5 of our children within 20 minutes of her water breaking Answer If your wat…er breaks, ten you will have 2 days ti have your baby at the most because there are risks of infection after your water breaks!
Your water can break at any time, it does not mean your labour has started. If your water goes very early, before the baby is able to survive outside the uterus you will… have to be very carefully monitored to ensure you do not get an infection. the tear in the bag may heal itself but if it does not you will probably be delivered assoon as the baby is mature enough. You will probably be given antibiotics while you are waiting. Very occasionally the waters do not break until after the baby is born and the baby is born in the bag. This is called a 'caul' and is supposed to be lucky. the superstition says the baby will not die from drowning. Sailors used to buy the membranes as they believed the protection could be passed on.
Answer Sometimes the water breaks prematurely and you don't go into labor. This can be very dangerous as there is now a path for infectio…n to get to the baby. If you think your waters have broken go to the hospital as if you haven't gone into labor within 18 hours you will need to be given antibiotics. Well whenever I went into labor, they had to break my water so I wouldn't really know. But what i am sure of is if it does break, you need to go to the doctor right away, they told me the baby should be delivered no later than 24 hours after the water breaks because of the danger it's putting the baby in.
Answer First you lose the mucus plug, which could be 48 hours or so before the baby comes. Next your water breaks, then labor begins. However, it is hard to say …for each woman when contractions will begin. Many women have Braxton-Hicks contractions, or "false labor" ahead of true labor.
I would not suggest trying to break your own waters. It can cause damage to you and anything introduced into the vagina, to help break the waters, could bring with it in…fection and cause again damage to you or the baby. Things you should know about laboring with your waters broken are: 1. Without the bag of waters, the baby will not have as much room to maneuver around, if your baby is in an OP (occiput posterior, baby facing out which can lead to a slower labor and back pain) position it can make it difficult for the baby to turn towards the OA (occiput anterior, the optimal position for labor and delivery) position 2. The amniotic fluid acts as a cushion to the baby, including the umbilical cord. Without the cushion of the amniotic fluid, the baby's umbilical cord could be squeezed, cutting off oxygen to the baby and causing your baby to go into distress. There are other natural ways of inducing labor, but it is not a safe thing to do unless there is a medical indication that the mother or the baby needs to be delivered before labor starts naturally on its own.
Amniotic fluid surrounds your baby during pregnancy.
you will know....you get the urge that you need to push.
You should never attempt to break your own water. If your water doesn't break on it's own during strong contractions, your doctor or nurse is the only one who would determine …during labor, to break your water at the hospital.
I wish someone could answer this accurately, try to walk around. That is if your dr will even let you. Otherwise, wait.
You'll feel it!
there is no set period. some women have o have their water broken by a doctor and some women have there water break and have to be induced for labor to start. It depneds on th…e woman and the pregnancy.
Once the membranes rupture it is not safe to stop labor because the amniotic fluid is what keeps the baby safe and when the membranes rupture it can start allowing bacteria in… to the baby
Just one. Sometimes there will be an initial gush of amniotic fluid that is below baby's head. When the baby moves more fluid and leak out.
It is imposible nowdays, because doctor will break it if not yet broken in advance stage of labor
