Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

When my water broke with my first pregnancy it was a very light yellow but it was slightly cloudy. There wasnt any "blood" like I was told there would be ... fortunatly for me I was sitting on the toilet when my water broke. There was a very small gush... kind of like she had kicked my bladder, but I have heard of it being just as small as a tiny trickle.
It should be light yellow like straw. If the baby is stressed and has has a bowel movement the fluid will be green tinted.
