How long after your water broke?

Did you have your baby? And was it vaginal or c-sec?

Mine was 63hours and by c-sec.
After so long I only made it to a 3 and he wouldnt drop or nothing.So they took him.

  • That's exactly what happened to me. They broke my water and 14 hours later I was only dilated to 4 and he hadden't dropped. They took him by C Section. It's not good for the baby to be in the uterus for a long time without amniotic fluid. There's a risk for infection.

  • My water broke at around noon with my first and I didn't have the baby til 11am the next day... I was induced because my water broke before my labor started and but it was a vaginal birth.

    With the second... I don't remember when my water broke. I was already induced. I went in to the hospital at 6:30am and had the baby at about 5pm... Somewhere in there my water broke... lol!
