  • yes, you can dialate without the water fact one of my friends is dialated at 1cm (right now) and she still has fours weeks of pregnancy till her due your doctor so you can feel better.......and enjoy your last days of pregnancy.

  • I don't think you are sick, it sounds like labor will be starting soon. Everything you just said, are signs of labor coming.

  • The water doesn't break in most pregnant women. Either the Dr breaks it at the hospital or it breaks while you are already pretty far in labor.

  • Ditto everybody else. I've had 5 children and I've had to have to sac broken just before pushing with each one.

  • oh wow, didnt you take birthing classes? Less than 10% of labors start with the water breaking! You could very well be in early labor but I wouldnt go the hospital just yet. When labor starts, you will know!!
