Figuring out if your water broke or if you just peed a little is always a guessing game.
Is that a gush or just a trickle? Water breaking is one of those things, like childbirth, that's often portrayed as much more dramatic than it actually is. In reality, your water can break in a number of ways, some of which may be quite subtle.
