I had my waters break 2 weeks before baby was born. (I didn't once tell the midwives either.) There was always good gushing, good movements... choppy contrax, they were irregular for all of those 2 weeks. I just kept hydrated to help baby replace the fluid. Don't let anyone but you or hubby stick their hands inside you. And talk about your fears, dig deep and see if anything is there. Sometimes it is that which sorta stalls out labour. Stop listening to the midwives and listen to yourself. Sit with that baby and see if it's ready to come out, if it's okay, is it moving enough for your satisfaction? Do you need a hardy meal to nourish your body's need for labour?
Just throwing out lots of thoughts, hopefully something there will ring with you. Be at peace, hawkfeather, you'll soar to the heights needed.
