  • Mine did, It broke at 1:00 am, since I didn't have any pain yet, I went back to bed. I woke my husband up around 6 and we left for the hosp (Not the ER) Call your doc, they'll tell you where to go.

  • you page your OB, and they'll call Labor&Delivery ot let them know your coming.
    DON'T go to the ER, they'll send you right up to L&D anyway, or they'll be idiots and try to tell you, you have a UTI when you're in labor like they did to my friend, ha.

  • Happened to me at 2 AM. I wasn't having any pains either. I called our Birthing Center and asked a labor and Delivery nurse if I should come in. She said I could wait at home until the contractions began. We went in at 5 AM and I was already dilated to 7! My son was born at 7 AM .
