    Default Where did your waters break?

    I was induced last time, my waters "naturally" broke a few hours after the gel was inserted. I was on the ward trying to rest and got up as I had an urge to pee.
    I had already had a few hours of good contractions.
    I'm aiming for spontaneous this time and not sure what to expect. So when are where did yours break? Did you have contractions first then break or did they break then contractions?

    Mine broke about 3 hrs after contractions started. Didn't have a definite pop, I just got out the bath and realised I was leaking a lot! Had to take lots of towels for the car journey!

    Hopped out of bed & made a big puddle of water all over my bedroom floor luckily we had floorboards & not carpet!
    Contractions didn't start for another 12 hours.

    Both times I was in bed. First it was 6am and I'd been having regular contractions 8 min apart since the previous day at 3pm but obviously not established labour as to far apart, they got closer after about 6 hours to be considered active labour.

    Second time is was midnight and I'd been having irregular painful braxton hicks but wouldn't call them contractions and wasn't convinced I was about to have a baby. Established labour started 3 hrs after waters broke.

    With DS it was about 10 min before he was born, all over me, the midwife, our doula, the bed.. Quite gross.

    With DD, she was born with a splash! She was born in a bubble that burst as the midwife caught her

    Default Where did your waters break?

    Got out of bed in the morning to go to the toilet and waters broke as soon as I got to the bathroom. No contractions started. So 12hrs from SROM I was induced with the drip. 3hrs later my DS was born.
    Had ARM for DD to begin induction.

    I'd been in labour for 7 hours before mine were artificially ruptured.
