I was the same as Cindy, my water started leaking slowly. It took the docs hours to even figure out that it was leaking and I walked and walked trying to get labor to start. 16 hours later it still hadn't started so I was induced with pitocin (because of concern about infection). Even at full strength, the pitocin seemed like it was doing nothing but it did move me enough that doc could break my water all the way. From that point the intensity of contractions increased. I had about 5 hours of "mild" labor (not too painful, but I could certainly feel them), followed by 6 hours of very intense labor. She was born after 4 pushes.
