    for the first birth my waters broke at 4am and i stayed at home until 10am pretty much until the contractions were 3-4 mins apart and i went in, and then with the second birth i had my waters break at 9pm and i rang the hospital as i was barely 36 weeks by that point (no problems in either pregnancies either) and they said i ''must'' come in ''immediately'' as i was early and my waters had broken..

    i'd love to find out ''how'' (won't make sense here) i can get myself to dilate. lol. what can i do that was different the first two times.. i do remember they said i was not to get up off the bed as i was hooked up to some machines, so it's not like i could walk around or anything, but im unsure even if walking around , bouncing on a ball etc would have helped?
    Its really hard to know. I was lucky when I had my VBAC because in my first labor I had dialated to 10cm, so my body knew what to do in that respect. But I have larger than average babies and with my first after getting to 10 cms dialated and pushing for (I can't remember exactly but close to 2 hrs I think) he just wouldn't budge. He then went into stress and I was raced off for the cesarean. With my second I had a really active birth. I used hypnobirthing and birthing in a squatting position. This all meant bubs was in a really good place on my cervix to help dialate etc... I guess if you want to try natural again looking into ways to help progress through labor would be really beneficial and also hypnoborthing was such a help in my birth I would recommend it to anyone.

    Good luck with everything, I hope you get whichever birth you want
