I'd like to know if there's a way to prevent my water from breaking early?

Hey all. I am on Baby #3. With both previous pregnancies, my water broke early (first one 25 hours before birth, the second 14 hours beforehand). I'd like to avoid a pitocin drip this time around because my water broke too early again, ya know?

  • I don't know, but try to ask your Dr. Maybe your should really start taking it easy the last few weeks or so?

  • I had a problem with premature rupture....went into labor at 36 and 34 weeks with my first 2. Used vitimin c in my last pregnancy and went to my due date. Midwives swear by it.
