They started Pitocin on me around 5pm. They broke my water at 6 am the following morning, it didn't hurt at all. I got the epidural at 10 am. I was fully dilated at 9pm that night, SO 15 hrs after my water broke. I pushed for 2 hours and had to have a non emergent csection. My son was born at 12:24 am.

Quoting Jess Barnes:" I was just curious if you had your water broke, did that hurt? I heard it's just uncomfortable like a ... [snip!] ... you have an epidural/pain meds? I know every woman is different, but it's always helpful to hear other experiences! Thanks! :)"


Yes, they broke my water and it was a pressure kind of uncomfortable that was suddenly relived when broken lol. With the Pitocin they had to turn it down for me cus I was getting a break in between contractions and was putting stress on my son, I had more of an issue with the epidural though, it didn't numb my left side and it made me throw up. With my daughter my water broke naturally at home in the bed, and again had issues with the epidural it went up instead of down numbing my face, and they severed my sciatic nerve. So needless to say I'm gonna try not to have an epidural this time or at least use some other form of anesthetic.
