My waters broke this morning at 3am... !!!! (I am due tomorrow).
Had immediate, intense contractions moments later, went to the hospital where I was monitored for around an hour, but the contractions fizzled out.
I was sent home for a six hour wait (which ends at 12pm) to "see how I go" and if I don't progress they said they will put me on a drip and induce me.
I should be sleeping but my mind is racing!
How long after your waters broke did you go into full on labour?
Oh yeah, and NOBODY told me that the water/fluid DOESN'T STOP leaking (or gushing, rather) until delivery! And that it refills itself every 3 hours!
Super excited, tired, anxious, nervous!!
Also.. should I get up and move around? The midwife said to rest. Everytime I get up i leak!!!
I am still getting contractions, they are just not regular anymore

Oh yay, congrats
When mine broke they sort of just went 'pop' and I had contractions straight away, I walked around the hospital though to keep things moving.
Did your midwife give you a reason why you have to rest ?

Rest if you can. Moving around might help to bring more contractions on (gravity and all that) but if they're going to induce you at 12, you're probably going to need the rest.
Good luck, you'll meet your baby very soon!

That happened to me too but I refused to be induced till 48 hrs later. I went into labour spontaneously 36hrs later with an easy 2.5hr labour. Try to avoid being induced if you can.

I would keep moving to try and avoid being induced. You don't have to go in after 6 hours, they normally 'give' you at least 24-48. It's up to you. Exciting thought!!

No reason, just an old school kind of lady I think!? I think considering I can't sleep (as much as I'd LOVE to, had zero hours last night) I will start pottering about. Really didn't want to be induced...

My contractions only started 6 hours after my waters broke. Everyone is different, I guess! I was also told to rest and get some sleep

try to keep moving just do it gently, gravity will help. if you want a natural labour try to avoid being induced once they start intervening it's hard to stop. good luck : )

my waters broke in the morning just like yours and I was induced the next day. stayed 2cm dialated that whole time and ended up having an emergency c-sec, I agree with the others, hold off if you can, I would have loved to given birth naturally..
