Can babies movement cause your water to break?

I'm 37 wks with twins and these boys move a lot and it HURTS. I feel them in my cervix and it's stabbing pain as well as my ribs but I'm just wondering if they move strong enough of they can break the water?

Not likely, the sac is very sturdy.
:-)
But if there is a weak spot it may be possible.

Usually it's contractions that cause it to break, sometimes infection...

Being pregnant with twins means that they are putting more pressure on the sac/sacs than just 1 baby would so it coukd cause the placenta to weaken and therefore rupture membranes... My sister had that happen... Lil booger got part of the placenta between his toes somehow and moved just right and POP... GUSH!!!! The only reason they found that out is because he had a piece of the placenta stuck on hos toe when he came out...lol

Probably depends on what Progress means to you~  but it's normal to warm-up and "practice" so these contractions are probably happening for a reason.    Or a sign that something isn't Right...    You might try optimal fetal positioning and other things to calm-stop the prodromal labor.    It will be more comfy!  ;-)

Water breaking doesn't mean labor so if it breaks you might be leaking and messy for a while.   And if this happens with twins there will be more concern for prolapse, too.  

What kind of birth experience are you planning?

Well if my water breaks for me it means going to the hospital and having a c section. I've had 3 c sections already.

No progress means I haven't dialated at all. I was at the hospital for 3 hours during one of my prodromal labor times and the babies had prefect heart rates. All the ultrasounds I've had done show them doing great as well and 3 weeks ago measuring 5.5 and 5.2.

What is optimal fetal positioning?
