Re: IM 2cm dilated but water didnt break yet???
Your water does not have to break for you to be in labor. In fact, oftentimes they doctors will break it once you are already at the hospital. The best way to determine labor is by timeable contractions that become longer, stronger and closer together. I was 5 cm dilated when I went to the hospital with my first and my water still hadn't broken, but I was most definitely in labor!
