With my first baby my water broke and I never went into contractions on my own. I was also GBS or strep B + so they were giving me IV antibiotics every 4 hrs. Dr gave me 12 hours and then wanted to induce and that is what happened. Any other mommas had their water break first? How long did your dr give you to go into contractions on your own?

With my 1st, the doc broke my water. The 2nd, my water broke first and the contractions started on their own. This time around, I'd like if I started with contractions first and progressed a bit before my water breaks. Its always more painful once your water breaks!

Same here, minus the GBS. My water broke and I never contracted on my own. I went straight to the hospital once it broke and they admitted me right away. After 4 hrs of no contractions/progress, I was given pitocin. I had DD exactly 24 hours after being admitted.

ive never had my water break before labour, but thats a really good question. Im not really sure, i think it would depend on a few things, like if i was GBS+ or showing signs of infection, as well as how well baby was tolerating things

with my 2nd my MW said 24 hours before we would have to discuss going to the hospital, again assuming everything else was good, so im guessing my MW this time has a similar opinion

My water broke with DS#1, then I started having contractions. I was also GBS +, so when I got to the hospital they checked me and I was 4 cm and started antibiotics right away. I had to have pitocin because I wasn't dialating as fast as they wanted me to. After 8 hours in labor and the pitocin I was still only 5 cm dialated, so they just kep cranking up the pitocin, that's when I asked for the epidural. After 4 more hours I finally had him.

With DD1 my water broke at 5am. I arrived at the hospital at 7am. I was "almost 2cm". By 10am no progress or contractions so I started pitocin. By 11:30 I was 9cm. She was delivered at 1:03pm via c-section (breech, 41 weeks).

I was GBS negative, but they still wanted her out in 12 hours. The birthing class I took at the hospital had said 24 hours, I'm not sure why the doctor wanted 12.

My water broke the first time around 3 am, and I was immediately started on pitocin once I got to the hospital. They gave me no time to see if I'd go into labor on my own. I'm anxious to see if this time I'll get to experience natural contractions. Pitocin-induced labor was rough and very painful.

With my daughter my water broke really early in the morning. Started having contractions soon after that and had her in the afternoon 1pm-ish.

My water broke with my first and contractions began about 2 hours later.

With my second, contractions began (about 9 minutes apart) and very shortly after my water broke.

So, I never had a long period of time after my water breaking until contrax began.

My water broke at 3:00 a.m. We got to the hospital by 4:00 and they hooked me up to the monitor. I was having contractions, but I could not feel them. They finally started me on pitocin at 9:00 a.m. and I had my son a little after 7:00 that evening.

My water has never broken on it's own, I've always started off with contractions first and then had my waters broken for me (my daughter was born in hers).

My water began to leak at home one morning and I did not feel any contractions. It did not have that full blown gush until I was admitted to the hospital hours later. After it broke I did start to feel the contractions more but was already dilated far enough to receive an epidural. They started me on pitocin as well since they said I could not go 24 hours of my water being broken and not having the baby yet.

Ok, thanks ladies. That is very interesting... Sounds like most places like you to come in right away after your water breaks, I thought I was told to go to hospital right away because of the GBS+. Hoping I am negative this time though... It wasn't a big deal but if things happen the same way I would rather spend the 12 hours seeing if contractions will start on their own and not sitting around the hospital.
