Re: If your water broke spontaneously with one...

With DS, it broke in the middle of the night before contractions started. With DD, it broke just as she was crowning.

Re: If your water broke spontaneously with one...

My water broke naturally with 5 out of my 7 babies. 4 of them it broke before any contractions started then it moved quickly. One broke on its own when I was about 4 cm. The 5 times that my water did break spontaneously, it was in the middle of the night, never during the day.

DS1 - water broke on it's own at 39w 6days and was the onset of labor
DS2 - was having contractions sitting at 4cm for hours, DR broke my water and he was born 2 hours later
#3 - I'll let you know.

My water broke with dd (my first) on it's own at the start of labor and I delivered her 7 hrs later. With ds my water didn't break. The docs broke it when I was just past 7 cm. We'll see how #3 goes.

Re: If your water broke spontaneously with one...

2 spont. broke, mid dd born in the caul (midwife broke when baby was delivered). let me tell you an awesome experience!! i'm why so many mamas docs broke their water. its a wonderful cushion for baby and really eases contractions. with my last delivery when i went into hospital triage and the mw said i had developed a slow leak, which quickly turned into a big one. i said "oh no!" she kinda laughed at me and asked "don't you want to have this baby today." i said "yes but i really wanted to hold on to my bag of waters for as long as possible" her response "smart girl!"

Re: If your water broke spontaneously with one...

yes in both cases.
DD: 36w5d, high leak, they induced the next morning because things hadn't ramped up
DS: 37w6d, again, high leak, but it broke at 7am and he was born at 5pm with no other assistance. In both cases they broke my water again as the pressure was too much on the baby's head by the time I was in active labour.
