Re: If your water broke first w/ one pregnancy

broke on it's own with my 1st. he was a month early and I had bronchitis. I was in bed, middle of the night, coughing fit and pop! went my water.

the next 4 times, it was broken for me after I was at 10cm.....I knew I was in labor at that point, lol

Re: If your water broke first w/ one pregnancy

I've had 3 labors so far. Only one started with my water breaking. It was my second.

Re: If your water broke first w/ one pregnancy

With my first my water broke out of the blue no contractions first, with my second, I had contractions (mild ones) for about two hours before my water broke (at home) with my third my water broke but it was a small gush (my midwife later called it a partial break) and then a few hours later contractions started and it broke the rest of the way (a big gush) about half an hour before I had him.

My water broke and 4 days later I still hadn't gone into labor... baby was wrapped up in his cord pretty badly.

Re: If your water broke first w/ one pregnancy

What you are fearing is exactly what happened with my friend in March. Her DS1 and DS2, her water broke at home and then she headed to the hospital and had ~8-12 hours labor until kids were born. With DS3... she had "on and off" contractions overnight, but no signs of water breaking... so she labored at home. By the time her husband got home from work because she realized it was the real deal... they had a 30 minute drive ahead of them to the hospital... she got the urge to push about 1/3 of the way there... Her water broke as soon as she stood up out of the car (at the hospital)... and the baby was born 3 minutes later.

Re: If your water broke first w/ one pregnancy

With my first my water broke spontaneously in the middle of the night, then intense every 2-4 minute contractions started.

With DS2 I had contractions first. I was fully dilated and effaced with waters still intact and pushed for a bit. However, DS2 wouldn't budge, so I eventually agreed to have my water broken. He was born with the next contraction.

Re: If your water broke first w/ one pregnancy

With my first, water broke naturally at home. 2nd & 3rd, no. I had to be induced for medical reasons.

Re: If your water broke first w/ one pregnancy

Water broke first with both. With DS it broke and he was born 6 hours later, same with DD and she was born 7 hours later. Luckily both times happened on the toilet! I have no clue what will happen this time. It may be the wild card.
