great question! i wonder this myself, because my water broke, and then an hour later i was in active labor. i'm guessing that this labor will be totally different though, just to throw me off a bit ;) so my guess is that it's not true, that you are just as likely as another woman for your water to break before, during, or after labor. hope someone else has a better answer for us both. gl!
