there is no specific point during your labour when the water will break. It can be at the beginning or in the middle of it. No rules here.

I don't know when my water broke. I was in the hospital with contractions coming every few minutes. I was told I was only 1cm dilated at that point, and I was so disappointed and in pain, I went to sit on the toilet in the bathroom (felt like having a BM). 30 minutes later, dd was born into the toilet. I know my water didn't break when she crowned. She slipped out right after crowning, and I had screamed in shock. Everything was hazy after that with the midwife and dh running in to check on the baby. I never did find out whether she was born en caul or not.

Mine has always broke while pushing.  DS2 was breech and born in the caul.

My first, as others have said, had my waters broken to 'speed up the process' when I wasn't in full labor! (you only know after having 2 I say)

My second, I was 6 days late & BEGGING for them to break my waters & they didn't, just sent me home after a stretch & sweep (youch). Within in the hour I was back at hospital. 15 mins after that I was in full labor bellowing like a cow.... (quite hysterical the next day), & once I felt a drop you like a well, I guess babies head fall down into your 'cavity' My waters broke. & I smiled (or squealed with joy knowing I HAD DONE IT!!)

Forgot to write I'd labored at home for 5 hours before the stretch & sweep. I am all for staying home until your body says to go. Otherwise the hospital puts your body off doing what it does best
