My water didn't break with my 3rd until I was pushing. My 1st was only one that my water broke before I went into active labor. Good Luck and congratulations.

Unfortunately I had to be induced with all 2 out of 3 of my girls. My 1st i was 9 days overdue, had the cervical gel in place, then had to go to the hospital and put on the pitocin drip for 2 days, then had my water broken by the dr before anything started. My 2nd I was 8 days overdue, had the cervical gel in place and that night (about 4 hours after the gel was put in) my water broke at home about 2:30pm and I delivered my baby girl by 7:30am. My 3rd baby I was again 7 days overdue, I didn't have to be induced this time, but I was freaking out it was so close to christmas my oldest daughter was to have her 1st xmas concert for school and I was going to miss it if the baby didn't come that day. The next morning 5am my contractions started (I had no idea what was going on because I was always induced and the contractions came hard) these ones weren't that bad, I sent my husband to work, took my oldest to school, the 2nd to daycare and came home. I finally had my husband come home around 9am and we went off to the hospital baby wasb't born until 9:35pm. I forgot to mention as I am walking my daughter into daycare I have pretty strong contraction and have to hold the wall (thought my sitter and the other father dropping his daughter off were going to call 911 on me), then as I am trying to drop my daughter off at school I park in the wrong spot (not thinking to good at this point) and get blocked in by the buses arriving. By the time I got home, my husband was waiting and pacing up and down our driveway. Never really thought how funny that story was until I just wrote it down.

Marie, this is your 3rd baby you will do a great job. Just remember the births are never the same(at least mine weren't) Good luck in your delivery and the count down!
