baby sounds great, I've been in every imagineable position, plus walking, stairs, ect. to encourage a good position, but still active labor has not kicked in.  I have been making progress towards it, just ever so slowly.  78 hrs since ROM, first no ctx to speak of, now they are coming every 10-15 min and are hard, but not very long (15-20sec).  My dd3 followed a similar labor patten, but this is still soo hard.  looking for other birth stories of prom at term who waited it out.

Here's a story of a woman who's water had been broken for 5 days before delivering vaginally at home. http://www.mothering.com/community/t/1322981/water-broke/0_100#post_16593471

How are things going? Hope you have your baby by now.

 

It took nearly 90 hours for labour to start with my 2nd after my water broke. I took Vitamin C every few hours & checked my temperature to monitor for infection.
