Did you water break before labor?

And if not did it break naturally during labor or artificially by the care provider?

  • With my first it broke on its own about 2 hours before contractions began. My 2nd was induced at 34 weeks, so they broke it while I was in labor.

  • One time it did, over a week before my labor started.
    And another time it looked like baby would be born in the sac, intact!
    Almost opposites, hehe.

    I wouldn't want it to be artificially, that is too risky!

  • My water broke the next morning i moved into my new place...I drove 18 miles to the hospital with no contractions, but my damn seat was soaked (grossssss) went into the hospital, they admited me and told me to walk around, i stopped dilating, all i wanted to do was lay down, but noooooo, once i started having contractions, they wanted me to sit on this damn ball...seriously, wtf, would i want to block where my baby is coming out....I kicked the ball and yelled, "i want to lay down" guess that's when they said i couldnt' have any meds..lol.
