Hes, as Purpl says, why haven't you been to antenatal classes, where you could ask such questions, and should receive the appropriate answers ? Excellent response from Purple. it's very unlikely to happen, and if it idd, other people would be so worried that you were having a baby and they wouldn't know what to do to help, that water would be the least thing they'd worry about.
