    I read it's only about 15% of women's waters break first. With DD1 mine broke about 2 1/2 hours before contractions started.
    With DD2 they had to break them & did it about 5 - 10 minutes before she was born.
    With DS my contractions were about 10 minutes apart. I wasn't sure if they were gonna stop or not coz it'd only been about an hour & a half since contractions had started, but I only had about 5 hours of labour.
    Everyone is different & every labour is different. You just never know.
