    Question Water broken or leaking? (TMI)

    Is it possible to have my water break, or puncture, without me knowing or having any significant contractions?

    During the night I noticed that my underwear is damp and yet I don't see any CM/discharge like I usually do. And as I (and the baby) have been resting/sleeping for the last 4 hours it seems unlikely to me to be urine leaks...

    Yesterday I was more physically active than usual and when I got home it felt like I had strained a groin muscle. My back has also been aching and I've felt menstrual crampy for most night evening and night. I also had some braxton hicks contractions for a couple hours but nothing regular or seemingly progressive.

    If no real contractions start when should I call my doc about the leaking?

    Yes, your water can break with no contractions. I never had this happen, but a friend of mine had her water break early by about 3 weeks, then got to the hospital and got an epidural. Never felt a single contraction.

    Probably best to call your doctor and get checked.

    Good Luck!!

    Yes it can leak slowly. Yes it can break with no contractions. I have had mine do both those things with three of my pregnancies. With two of them I didn't get contractions until induced 12-18 hours later. With the other (#4) I finally got them 18 hours after it broke. If you are worried, get it checked out. They can do an easy tezt to find out whether it broke.
    Good luck!

    No further dampness since I woke up so maybe I was just sweating... Will keep an eye on things.
