  • You water doesn't always break. I was induced and up to 3 or 4 before they broke my water with my first son.

  • I was dilated 4 cm with my DD for over a week before I went into labor, I have 3 children and my water never broke with any of them. I was almost 10cm with my last child and my water was still not broken LOL, all three times the Dr broke my water. You can go into labor at anytime, you water does not have to break to be "in labor". If it breaks, yeah go ahead to the hospital if not wait til your contractions are about 5 mins apart or listen to your OB.. Congrates on the new baby that is coming
