    Contractions first. In fact, my water never noticeably broke. I leaked a little head water right before I started pushing, but baby came out with all the water together.

  • Contractions came first! With first son, I never even noticed when my water broke. I assume it was while I was pushing. With my second, it was immediately before pushing - my water broke and his head just dropped like a bowling ball, lol. He was out in seven minutes.
