Hi ladies,  

First if you know me on facebook please don't say anything on there just yet.

I was just wondering what other people's experiences are, I had my first steroid injection today with my second to follow tomorrow but I have no idea what I am in for over the next few weeks?

If your waters broke with no signs of labour did they send you home? They have said aiming for delivery between 35 - 36 weeks which I am thinking will happen as my previous two babies were waters breaking with nothing happening so I was induced for both of them and I am hoping my body decides it still doesn't know how to go into labour.

Also just wondering how long you managed to hold off for before delivery and how long bubby was in hospital for?

Thanks so much for your replies

Lisa

I had PROM at 34 weeks with DD, i was induced later that day.

They were considering keeping me pregnant, but decided against it due to my health issues.

I was told i was to stay in hospital till 36 weeks, if that was the case HTH and good luck original.gif

I had prom at 33 with my ds, I had the steroids, antibiotics,and ultrasound to check water levels.  I stopped leaking and was able to go home after two days.  It's depends on how big a leak, and why it happened.  My ds was delivered at 37 after another leak at 35 weeks.  I had no contractions at either time.  My dd waters broke at 35 weeks, she was delivered a week later, no steroids , a night in scn for observation and she did go under the lights but we were one a week later.  There are so many variables, but they will try and keep bub inutero as long as possible.

Well..... My mattress is ruined and so is the carpet on the floor.

It's still just gushes occasionally every hour or two definitely not as much as when they broke this morning that was just a waterfall. And yes even though it has happened twice before I still sat there for a good 10 seconds wondering if my pelvic floor had just given up.

Antibiotics every 6 hours and ctgs every 12 hours at the moment.

The night nurse just came in and said they will know more tomorrow with all the results of my swabs and blood tests so I will just hope that everything is normal and he can continue to cook for a while longer.
Thank so much for replying I appreciate it I am very scared at the moment.  sad.gif

I had PPROM with my second at 24 weeks. By some miracle I did not get an infection and need to deliver until 33 weeks exactly. Because the PPROM was so early DD2 needed a lot more airway support then the average moderate prem but got better quickly.

My mum's water broke at 35/36 weeks (but with IUGR - when I was born I was listed as 32 weeks gestation by the doctor). Contractions started 4 hours later. I was delivered by forceps, severely distressed after a 14 hour labour with APGAR's of 3 and 5 and dark blue, weighing exactly 2kg. A few days in the NICU, a couple of weeks rooming-in, and I was fine. No long term problems. I didn't need surgery, intubation, antibiotics, or oxygen after a few days. I just needed a few hours of light therapy for jaundice and a couple of days of tube feeding. I was a perfectly healthy newborn, although a little on the tiny side. That was 25 years ago with no steroids which definitely make a difference. Good luck. I hope everything goes well for you OP.

Thanks you so much for your replies.

In the end, I had an infection and ended up with an emergency c-section last night (33+1) and Ryan was born at 8:49pm weighing 5pnd 3oz. Apgars were 9 at one minute and 9 at 5 mins. He hasn't needed any assistance with breathing at all and is just on temp control and tube feeds at the moment, thank you steroid shots.

He did have a few good sucks at breastfeeding attempt number one tonight.

Everyone is saying they cannot believe how well he is doing and we are hoping he will go into an open air cot over the next couple of days.  original.gif

Thanks so much all!

He ended up comin home at 36+0! He could have come home the day before but they were hesitant due to his age.

Apparently very few babes get sent home right on the 36 week mark and I did have to push for it, but as I said to them he had been on full suck feeds for over 72hours. (24 hours more than the required 48 to be sent home)

So we are home and have been for over two weeks now.

I am now patiently waiting for him to turn into a normal newborn and cry at me  biggrin.gif  

Thanks so much for all your thoughts

Lisa
