I am now in the hospital for the duration. Last Friday night my water broke, unbeknownst to me. I had some bleeding and we went to the hospital. Was admitted to labor and delivery and the ultrasound showed absolutely no fluid. Anything that looked like fluid was cord one they turned on the Doppler.

I was transferred by ambulance to another hospital 80 miles from home that has a level 3/4 NICU. I had a dose of steroids Saturday morning and one Sunday morning.

When my wear broke it caused a partial placental abruption. The bleeding is almost gone now. I had to do 48 hours on magnesium sulfate. We stopped that this morning. I am on IV abx 4 times a day. We hope to make it to at least 32 weeks. So far no contractions but I am already bored to death of just sitting and laying in bed. I know I will do It for the long haul but my
Mind is going to mush already and I miss my kids!!

Re: My water broke at 28-4 weeks....

All the best. Hope everything keeps going better and that your little one stays in there. It's hard to be bored. Do you have a TV and DVD player that you can watch movies on? Books, magazines, knitting or crocheting? Now's a good time to learn Hope it goes by fast.

Good luck! I would suggest your DH purchase you a kindle or nook if you don't already have one.

I wish you well and hopefully you will have a favorable outcome.

Oh my gosh! I am so sorry to hear that. Glad you and baby are doing well. Have you had any preterm labor before? Please keep us posted.

Re: My water broke at 28-4 weeks....

Praying for you! With my 4th, my water broke at 30 weeks. I was also contracting so I was admitted to L&D and given steroid shots and magnesium sulfate. After a couple of days the contractions died down and I was able to move up to the high risk perinatal floor. I spent 4 weeks (yes, a whole month!) on bedrest in the hospital. My LO ended up being born at 34 weeks and spending 10 days in the NICU. I was also in a hospital 70 miles away from home and I wasn't able to see my other kids the entire time.

I watched a lot of random television (we don't have cable at home so it was entertaining for a bit). I knit and read. My hospital had arts and crafts times too. Mostly I slept. It was long and boring, but I would do it again in a heartbeat for my LO.

Praying for you and for the baby. Stay in there little one!

Re: My water broke at 28-4 weeks....

Lots of thoughts and prayers to you!! I hope you can hang on in the hospital. I've been on bedrest at home for 2 months (not the same I know but...). I'm having my c-section on Friday at 37 weeks!

Please try to relax and breathe, I know easier said then done. I know the hospital will take good care of you, try to consider it like getting pampered!
