with both my kids 2 and 5 I had contractions in the hospital (I was induced with cervidel first time and patocin second time). I didn't feel the contractions either time with them the nurse would ask if I felt them, but I didn't. But as soon as m water broke with them then I started feeling the contractions. Is that normal? Why don't I feel the contractions before then? Does that mean if I have another baby that I wont feel those ones until my water breaks?

If you don't do drugs this time your water may never break on it's own. Babies can be born with their bag of water intact. Everything is different with a non-intervention birth. Of course you will feel the contractions even if your water doesn't break. My first birth with no drugs I was pushing and the bag of waters was hanging out and the midwife broke it. My second birth with no drugs I was squatting for pushing and my bag of waters broke and out he came riding the wave. My third birth I was induced for medical reasons (my life was in danger). The bag of waters broke after I had been having contractions for about 6 hours. I didn't have an epidural. I thought I would have to have one because I was very ill and out of shape but I never felt the need. I had an easy induced labor and birth with no pain meds.
