It's almost 1am. My waters broke 2 hours ago. Midwife happy for me to stay at home and go in for checks at 09:30 in the morning because I haven't had any contractions yet. Should I sleep or keep moving?
Is it your first? If yes, I'd rest as much as possible. First labours can be long and you may need your energy.
If it's not your first, I'd be tempted to trot up and down stairs!! I did loads to bring on my contractions with my second as I didn't want to be induced as I felt so ready to "go". It worked, she was born after only 3 hours.
Congrats you will be having your baby soon because if contractions don't start within 24 hours they will induce you. My waters broke and contractions never started so I was induced. Induction fine - don't believe all the scare stories. Good luck, but yes, do try to go to sleep!!
Definitely rest and relax. My contractions didnt come for 48 hours. Different hospitals have different policies re timescale to induce - and you can opt for monitoring if you prefer. The vast majority of people do go into spontaneous labour. How exciting you will have your baby soon.
