    First time in hospital they were broken due to DD1s HR distress then contractions started she was born 8.5hours later

    Second time contractions started, got to hospital hopped in the bath and they broke before I started pushing, I remember begging my middie to break them lol she kept saying baby might be born in its waters but then they popped and DD2 was born 15 mins later.

    Mine broke a little bit in the ward, I was half asleep, they had given me strong pain killers. Then they hadn't fully broken in the birth suite so she broke them again there. Best. Feeling. Ever.

    In hospital via ARM - was in established labour for a couple of hours before the midwife broke them to put an internal monitor on DD. Apparently the sac was quite thick & it took her a few goes to break it.

    On my parents couch! Lucky it was only the hind waters breaking because we had a 2 hour trip back to our home town to the hospital.
    Contractions started regular straight after hind waters breaking. Trust me 2 hours in the car in labour were not much fun!
    Waters proper were broken by the midwife when I was 10cm dilated ready to push 5 hours later. The sac was all raggedy due to hind waters breaking first.
    Took us all by surprise at 37 weeks

    Baby number 1 - in the shower 40+1.
    Baby number 2 - in bed 39+5.

    That was the start of both labours.

    In hospital, broken by the midwife. It was about 45 minutes before DS was born.

    Both times mine broke at hospy - I was well and truly in labour. It was little gushes here and there when I moved around rather than one big explosion lol

    Mine broke at home while talking on the phone (40+4) but didn't gush, I wasn't sure if I'd wet myself or not tbh!
    Contractions started about 2 hours later and established labour 12 hours after that.

    Sitting on the couch watching a movie (at 40+5). No other signs of labour before or after!
