oh, and further to that last thread, any of you whose waters had to be broken first time, did they go naturally second time around?

My last three babies, my waters didn't break until the baby was coming out in a big splashy, watery explosion! It happened 3 times so think it couldn't be a coincidence and that I just had that tendancy.
I think it made my labours easier to bear but made the last bit very fast, shocking and intense.
