  • You don't. You could introduce bacteria and cause an infection that could be harmful or fatal to the baby. Wait for it to happen on it's own.

  • Let time handle the details for you. You're just along for the ride; you don't get to control this birthing thing.

  • Ur not even full term until 38 weeks!!!! If your try and break your water more likely than not you'll end up leaving the hospital wit no baby!!! It's dangerous to try that!!! You only have a few weeks left anyway!! No reason to even try to break ur water

  • I understand wanting the pregnancy to be over. I've been there 3 times. 2 of the times I was a week over due. But I never once thought about breaking my own water.

    PLEASE DON'T TRY THIS! It's so dangerous. Just wait it out. Keep going to your dr appointments. If dr thinks the baby should come before your water breaks on its own, then he/she will do so safely.
