(bare in mind i had been in 'labor' for 4 days) my waters broke at 7pm (mucus plug went too) I went into full blown labor straight away and by 2am my little girl was born.

About two weeks before delivery. I was dilating and everything but my water never broke so almost two weeks after my due date, we induced.

Mine was 3 weeks before I went into labor. I asked the doctor and she actually said that has no relation to when your baby is going to come.

With my first it all happened at the same time - membrane, waters, quick contractions and I was holding baby less than 5 hours later. With my second I really don't know if or when my membrane went. After 4 hours of labour the midwife broke my waters and I was holding baby 5 minutes later!

mine never broke and neither did my waters, the midwife had to break my waters for me at the hospital about 5minutes before my son was born
