Quoting ℳary ℐane:" It's not painful. A cervix check is worse."
Quoting SAFFY™:" It's painless but absolutely awful if you can't stand feeling wet between your legs. I also hated that I felt like I was peeing myself and unable to control it. Every contraction...GUSH."
Quoting Crystal Marie S.:" The act of getting your water broken does not hurt. I've had it done 3 times, you just feel a big warm ... [snip!] ... your water breaks, it's a continuous thing. You'll pretty much be leaking til the baby comes out, so keep that in mind also."This
Quoting SAFFY™:" It's painless but absolutely awful if you can't stand feeling wet between your legs. I also hated that I felt like I was peeing myself and unable to control it. Every contraction...GUSH."lol Seriously.
Quoting Asher's mommy [Expecting :" Does it hurt, badly? Did anyone's doctor break their water in order to induce them, without Pitocin? ... [snip!] ... doc said something to the effect of, "Well.... it's enough for me to break your water," it didn't sound very encouraging. Lol. "
Quoting Mitchell.family.of.5:" Breaking your water is a good, painless way to help start labor. But if your body is not ready for labor ... [snip!] ... is a jump start of labor for sure. If you do not progress they will start pitocin. Just thought I would throw that out there."
Quoting Asher's mommy [Expecting :" No they won't. I'm having trying for a VBAC. If I don't progress, I'll have to have a RCS. "At least they can't use pitocin, they damn near forced it on me. I refused it twice, but once they gave me something to "take the edge off" and I got loopy , they convinced me to let them start it. I was so pissed...I don't even remember telling them it was OK.
