    If you are leaking fluid you should see the doctor. They have a test they can do to see if it is urine or your water leaking.

    If your water is leaking they will either induce you or put you on bed rest depending on how far along you are.

    A dry birth is where the fluid runs all out before the baby is born but this rarely happens because your body keeps producing the water until the baby is born. You could get an infection though so call the doctor right away and let them check you!

    Hi, my friend had a dry birth and its where you have no contractions so you have to be told when to push. She had very little pain because of having no contractions! As far as that goes a 'dry birth' has nothing to do with the amount of amniotic fluid! If your water has broke you do need to go to delivery because you may get an infection but there are two lots of water you lose when you give birth called front waters and back waters and if you've only lost one of those then you should be ok! Goodluck! XXX

    Hi Sweetie,

    I am a mom of three. There is no such thing as a "dry" birth. Your amniotic fluid continues to be produced even after the membranes break and the fluid begins to leak. Even if there were no amniotic fluid there is plenty of other wet, slimy, squishy stuff that will be happening during birth. Some people think that childbirth is such a "beautiful , natural " thing, but in all reality... it ain't pretty!! Good luck to you--MissDelanne

    Water Breaking is completely natural. You are not at risk for either an infection or the mythical dry birth. You should call your doctor for instructions, but don't worry about a dry birth. Your amniotic fluid is constantly replacing itself.

    i never heard of a dry birth, but i do know that your body produces more water (the amniotic fluid) when you leak or your water breaks, i dont think your baby could survive with no fluid

    If you think your water has broke you should be at the hospital. Because it will give the baby to have infecton with and most of the time you have to deliver the baby within 24 hours after your water breaks or it will cause you to have serious problems.

    I don't think I have ever heard of a dry birth.

    If your water has broken you need to call your OBGYN or just go right to the hospital. When your water breaks... basically means its time to have a BABY! CONGRATS!
