breaking water

Can You Not Know When Your Water Breaks?

Dear Midwife,
I had a very hard and long labor with my second child. My midwife tried to break my bag of waters and found out that it had already broke.

The only thing is...I didn't notice it. I know my bag of waters did not break or I would have noticed. Apart from that I was full term, but my daughter only weighed in at 5# 3oz. What do you make of this? Could I have problems in a future pregnancy with low amniotic fluid?
