how do you know when your water is broken? can it leak over a period of days? is it safe to have s_x after your water is broken? by the way, i am 40 weeks and 2 days and i can hardly wait to carry my child in my arms, instead of my womb

Many women know cause it is an uncontrollable gushing of liquid from your v____a. When I had my water broken by my doc I was sooo surprised at the feeling cause it felt as though I had peed myself with no self control! It can leak slowly though. Some say it has a sweet smell to it-very different from urine and it can have a tint of dark color to it. If you suspect that yours had broke you should definitely go to labor and delivery cause they have a test strip to use to determine if it is in fact your water that has broke. If you think that it is, you should refrain from s_x just to be on the safe side-if you water had broken.

I don't think it is safe, you aren't supposed to have a bath either because of the risk of infection. Suggest you call your dr, here if your waters are broken that get you to hospital.

If you even think your water had broken... you should NOT have s_x. Having broken membranes means that the protective sac around your baby has a hole in it... amniotic fluid gets out and bacteria gets in. I believe the general rule of thumb is they will let you go for 24 hours after your water breaks, but after that... you better be in active labor because your chances of you or your baby getting an infection go way up. You should definately contact your Dr. and go in to be checked!
