I would say within 24 hours yes. I would ring the hospital and tell them what is going on as sometimes you can lose the waters without noticing, (thinking you have had a big wee). If the waters have gone or are leaking then you are open to infection. It is worth ringing and asking there advice. Good luck!

This is not my first baby. Things are happening differently with pregnancy. My due date is 3weeks away.

Maybe, Maybe not. I lost my plug a month before i had my first. I was dilated to 2 for a week with labor pains before I had her.

maybe, maybe not. I was like that for three weeks with my first. My docs kept saying, we'll see you tonight! and swept my membranes twice! But in the end, with my first, I got a high tear in my water and they had to break my water before contractions and labor fully came on.
