Luckily, it is a small leak and we are still holding on. I was treated with antibiotics and steroids shots for the baby. Anyone else out there have experience with this?

I responded to you in May DDC, but figured I'd write again here.

My water broke at 34 weeks with my son and I was induced right away. With this baby it broke at 32 weeks and I was admitted to the hospital. Fortunately I resealed by 33 weeks and they agreed to let me go home under strict conditions. Now I go to the hospital twice a week for NST's, plus have weekly appointments and ultrasounds. They never expected me to make it this far, but somehow I made it to term. It's a rough road, but you can make it!

Here's that link I gave you before. There's tons of stories on this website about people who've experienced pPROM, and even a mailing list where you can communicate with them.

And BabyCenter also has a pretty helpful Amniotic Fluid Disorder forum.

Good luck!! Hang in there!

I was just released on strick bedrest conditions plus i have to go to the hospital for planning score u/s and apt. every week. I'm going to take a look at both sites now.

I also ruptured at 19wks, they said it was a pretty good leak too. I had to take magnesium something to stop contractions and I had a high fever, they thought I had an infection too.I stayed in the hospital until around 30wks and was sent homes on bedrest, since they had established my water had sealed back over. I had u/s every week and stress tests. They gave me steriod shots for the baby too. She was born 1 day over her EDD, adn weighed almost 8lbs.

My water broke at 31 weeks. They put me on strict bed rest in the hospital. 5 days later I went into labor and then they found out I had an infection from the water being broke. I do hope you hold on longer then I did.
