Re: first time mom question
You can start having contractions before your water breaks...that was my case.
If you are laying down, you could feel a gush....again that was my case...I was laying down...already in the hospital bed, and it came gushing out.
If your standing it will be a trickle, as the babies head acts as a cork.
Everyone told me "when your in labor, you'll know it" And they were right!
When your time comes.....you'll know! Good Luck!
