    Please dont quote me on this as you midwife has worned you off them then maybe its best you dont do it anymore but I thought that you couldn't have hot baths and hot spa's as this can bring on labor not swimming and have a normal bath aslong as you have someone to help you out as you there might come a day where you just cant do it on your own (it happened to me...) but like I said dont quote me..

    Good luck on bring you baby to this world very soon...

    Hi Aimes
    Swimming and baths are fine. Just make sure that the bath is not hot.
    When your waters break it usually just looks like water. Sometimes it may have a slight tinge of colour to it. It smells a little sweet, some people say that it smells a little like semen. When it happens it will either come out in a large gush and then it is obvious what it is, but sometimes it could just trickle out and can be mistaken for an increase in CM. Some women will also feeling a popping sensation as the water breaks.
