Yes your water can still break...no matter the position the baby is in. Well with the contractions you will experience some pain you have never felt before soo you will know when you feel them i cant explain it. Hope you have a safe delivery.
My twins were transverse. My water never did break, and I didn't dilate. I just felt sick when I went into labor (like the flu). My contractions got more frequent, b0amd stronger, but that is it.
