Water Breaking Genetic

Do you think whether the water breaks has ANYTHING to do with genetics? My mother is just absolutely convinced that i won't dialate at all and my water will just break (like she did). Which ... i'm 37 weeks now & 0 dilated ... so she's right so far ... but ... i mean i still have a few weeks! I just wanted an opinion.

My mother had to be induced with me (she was 3 weeks overdue) and was 3 weeks overdue and her water did not break (the doctor broke it for her when she was in labour). I went a week early and my water broke on it's own. I think it's all random. What will happen will happen. Good luck!

my moms water broke with my brother, and my water broke with my first---concidering that your water is only suppose to break in 15% of women--there's a chance...but it could also be random

No, it is not genetic, it just happens by chance.

I think it just happens by chance too, my mum and my sister both had to have their waters broken my mum with all 5 of hers and my sister with her 2. Mine popped all on its own..THANKFULLY! I was so ready :o)

Considering just a small percentage of women actually have their water break before contractions I got very lucky. With both of mine my water broke on their due dates....odd. It is nice not having to question weather or not you are in true labor

my mom had 8 kids and she said she had to have her water broken each time!
