  • Starting labor. You don't always notice when your plug comes out I never did once in my four pregnancies. Water will break later if it hasn't already. In fact one time my lamaze coach saw a baby born with the bag of water still intact. Call your doctor or head to the hospital.

  • You are likely in early labor. If they are irregular or stop, there's no need to go in. Only when they are regular, steady, and are increasing in intensity and duration is it time to take notice.

    You don't need to have your water broken. Some women's water never breaks. In fact, intact water protects the baby from infection, cushions the baby and cord from contractions (especially if drugs augment labor which makes contractions much stronger than normal), and it prevents cord prolaps (cords float). Breaking water early can cause problems if the baby isn't quite ready or engaged in the pelvis -- they can be stuck in a less ideal position or their head might not be in the pelvis and the cord might slip past them.
