Does your water have to break before you become 1 to 2 centimeters dialated?

Nope it doesn't. My water never broke with my son until the midwife broke it at 9cm. I am almost 32 weeks pregnant and at 28 weeks I was 1 1/2 cm dilated.

I am having baby #4 in a few weeks (or sooner) and my water has never broke on its won. My doctor usually breaks it somewhere around 7-9 cm. So no you can be fully dailated and still have your waters intacked.

My water broke on it's own both times.   I hadn't dialated with either of them.

Nope, I was 2cm when my water broke on it's own with my first and I was about 6cm when my dr broke my water with my second.

I think I was about 4 cm dilated when my water broke on it's own.  All women have different scenarios.

does my water have to break for be to be in labour ? If not how will I know it's time ? I'm 38 1/2 weeks along, 3 cm dilated lost my mucus plug a week ago and still have some discharge. I cramp up sometimes, difficulty sleeping, pee trips more frequent.  My mom had 3 pregnancies and each one the Dr. broke the water.

What should I be looking for ?  first baby
