  • No, water broke by itself with 1st and 3rd DDs, but Dr did it with my 2nd DD.

  • no it's a new amniotic sac. it's never necessary for a dr to break the sac. & having it broken by the dr previously won't make it break early or anything :)

  • With my first, my midwife broke my water at 8.5 cm. With my 2nd 2 kids, my water broke on it's own at 10 cm. So, I don't think that it should have any effect on anything.

  • I don't think that it would. When that thing wants to break, it will break lol.

  • dr had to break all three of mine, but I think it was just coincidence

  • no, the doctor broke my water the first time and the second time it broke on it's own. I was scared though because the first time I didn't see what the fluid looked like and the second time I saw and it was bloody and it freaked me out. LOL I guess I expected it to be clear. LOL
