Quoting Tay L:" Had my check up today, dilated to 3cm and he's super low. Well I had super bad vag pains which was told ... [snip!] ... cause it would honestly be embarassing and a bit humiliating for me if my water broke in class or at work tomorrow..."
most people don't have their water break on its own. Even those that do.. it's often just a trickle.. so if it'll help you feel better... wear a pad.
You're pregnant.. if your water breaks.. it won't shock anyone. It'll be ok.
that said... I have to throw out there.. vaginal pain does NOT mean ccervical change. you cannot feel your cervix dilating.
