Fly, you fools! FLY!
FYI: In works of fiction, a woman’s water breaking is always the first thing to happen in labour. In movies, there’s never a slow build-up of contractions or anything. Just BAM, water breaks. This does sometimes happen (it happened with my wife’s first pregnancy), but not often. It’s hackneyed and ridiculous, but I’m going with it! Because I have no choice! The fiction police would give me a ticket if I didn’t!
July Voting Incentive NOW UP!!!
It’s July, and that means Puck’s pulling out ALL the stops by giving you a voting incentive that has everything you ever wanted! And when we say everything, we mean EVERYTHING!
Err, I think that's how it was for my woman both times - no contractions, just water breaking. Granted the second was induced, but the first, I was just sitting with her, she happened to ask me to hold her belly and it happened just then - I actually felt the snap of the (can't remember the name now - the sort of bag that surrounds the baby) broke!! It's sort of like a muted form of when your holding a baloon when it bursts!
Anyway, no contraction water breakings seem normal to me? I am just a sample size of one, of course (the most important one, though! ;) )
