  • With my first three I always had contractions and the nurses broke my water when I was between 5-7 cm dilated. I'm currently 28 weeks with baby #4 and overly excited to see whether she'll do the same as her big brother and big sisters. My first three labors lasted 7.5 - 8 hrs start to finish, my children were all 7lbs 2 or 3 oz and 20-21 inches long.

    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.
