Iv been getting contractions but not strong enough for them to take me into hopsital,.. i really dont wanna be induced as i hate hopsitals at the best of times and being there on your own for a night aint exactly magical either so i hope my waters brake asap xx

It took me a week :/ I never dilated so I had to be induced with both of my daughters. My water broke, I was 100% effaced, but I never dilated past 3. I walked a lot, had sex, the usual. That's all you can do.....
