I'm so sorry for the scare and having to be in the hospital. Wishing you a smooth few weeks and a delivery.

Are they giving you anything to prevent infection though? I had always heard that you had to deliver within 24-72 hours of waters breaking because of the risk of infection to the baby.

Thanks ladies. I'm praying everything goes Smooth these next few weeks. Since ruptured I've been on 2 different antibiotics 3x a day. So far so great! They really trying to keep this baby in long as possible. Its scary knowing you're going to have a preemie no matter what.😢 but all prayers are welcomed and i appreciate you ladies 😊💜

Aww glad to hear they are being proactive. If it helps, my siblings and I were all born around 32 weeks and we turned out pretty freaking awesome

Aww you poor thing. It must be scary and it also sucks being stuck in hospital.
My neighbour's water broke early too and she was able to keep baby in there until he was safe to come out. He didn't even need time in NICU because he was a decent weight best of luck

This can be so scary and stressful, but the good news is your baby will get stronger every single day. Each day is a victory and your care team can help him grow stronger as well. I have a friend whose water broke around 20 weeks and was able to keep her kiddo in for a LONG time afterwards even though the doctor's had given up on him. He's going to be 10 in november!

Will be thinking of you!

Hey ! Survivor of PROM here. I got a "slow puncture" in my waters from 26+6 . Was in for a week , given steroids and antibiotics. Then they appeared to seal up . Rather than risk infection at hospital (much more likely than at home ) I was sent home and was on strict bed / sofa rest . Was back in twice a week for swabs , bloods , CTG . Was admitted at 30 week for a week as was leaking again. Went home , AGAIN . Then at 32+3 I went to my usual day clinic appt told midwife I had unusual discharge but she was satisfied I was Ok. Few hours later my bump had gone pink and I had s Low grade fever and was contracting sporadically. Dr's decided I'd done well getting that far . So induced me . Sadly after 12hrs I didn't progress. So i had an emcs. Ella was a mammoth 5lb3 . Had a wobbly first 48hrs , but was solely breastfed by day 10 and home day 12 . she's now a rather sassy pants ten year old and tallest in her class . I've attached her NICU photo xx
