I DONT WANT TO OR ANYTHING IM NOT READY FOR MY LIL GUY TO COME OUT JUST YET......but me and my DH were talking lastnight and asked if it was possible and anytime to just stick something up in you and break your water i told him i thought it was possible i dont see why you couldnt but i told him i think you had to be dialated a lil to be able to. So can you just go up there and break your water if you wanted too???
to the other answers she clearly said she didn't want to do it nor is she ready for her baby yet....... but to the OP yes you can break your own water but you have to be dilated some or your cervix's has to be soft......

Don't worry about this! If it needs to be done, the Dr. will do it during labor. Mine never broke, and I am so thankful because I was told by my Dr. that it helps cushion the contractions. They will break it for you if your labor is not progressing, or right before you deliver. They broke mine right before I delivered, and it is quite a tool. You really want them to do it too because the check the fluid for meconium.
