I am 29 weeks into pregnancy with my second child and hoping for a Vbac this time around. My son was born via c-section after about 35 hours of labour (17 h in hospital, I went way too early but didn't know being a ftm), only got to 8 cm and then they told me my pelvis was too small and that I wasn't progressing fast enough. I was 11 days overdue when I went into labour, my water never broke on its own but they insisted they break it when I was about 4-5 sm dilated.
I have done a lot of reading since then and I realize that I should have stayed home longer and that I probably shouldn't have had my water artificially broken. I also stayed in the labouring tub for a few hours and after I got out my midwives told me I was in there too long (not until after the fact - thanks!)
My question is, when did your water break on it's own. How many hours in, how many cms dilated? I am nervous about how this next birth will go, if I will be overdue, if I will progress in labour this time. Any experiences shared would be appreciated!:)
