How could Cobb and his wife be in the limbo stage if they had only entered their first layer of dream since death will cause dreamer to wake up.

According to previouse answers, it said that it was the use of powerful sedatives that trigers the condition that if you died in dreams you go to limbo.  Therefore the depth of the dream is irrelevant here.  This can be proven by the fact that Saito was hurt in the 1st layer of the dream but they can't kill him because it will take him to limbo straight away. 

Plus I believe they went on deeper than 1st level as I recall Cobb saying he insisted going deeper and deeper.
