I haven't had it done, but I have something to say anyway.During my first labor, my water didn't break until the very end...I think I had already started pushing. That labor was about 12 hours long, and things moved along in very steadily. My second labor started with my water breaking and I went into transition almost instantly. The contractions were A LOT more intense and more frequent than they were with my first. The labor lasted 3 hours. I went from 6 to 10 cm dilated in about 20 minutes.
