    ^^ like the title says ^^

    how many people waters broke before contractions or who had contractions before waters?

    with my first i never had regular contractions (scary) upuntill 8cm at which they broke broke my water for me so was just wondering which way round it happened for everyone else

    My doctor told me 8-10% of women have their water break first. Everyone else contractions come first.
