For some reason, I developed this at the end of my last pregnancy- with my perfectly healthy, petite baby girl. Since docs in Germany do ultrasounds at every visit
( we knew that baby was fine...so it was just one of those thigs. His biggest concern was that it supposedly put us at higher risk for cord compression if my water broke first ( apparently, with the higher volume of fluid, if the bg breaks, there may be a chance that teh cord is kind of washed down through the birth canal with it).
Anyhow, my water DID break first, a nice big splash....and immediately I checked to see if I could feel cord...not a problem.
There was tons of fluid, my husband remembers the midwife just sweeping it off teh bed and it pouring on teh floor- but no problems. Baby's head engaged fine. I had about 5 hours after my water broke until contractions started, and then just less than 2 until she was out !
So I wouldn't worry too much
) Just be aware of the possible issues, know how to handle them ( like elevating your bottom and getting to the hospital if there is a cord compression) and treat things as usual
