  • i dont think this is a true question.
    sometimes your water doesnt break, and they break it for you.

  • Go in. They wouldnt tell you to wait for your water to break. Just go in.

  • Call your ob. In a lot of cases, they will break your water doing an exam or something. Many women will be nearly ready to deliver before their water breaks. Hell, get someone to drive you and call your ob on the way. 5 minutes is pretty close.
