Any Pprom ladies out there?

Hi ladies

Hopefully I've posted in the right place I've been searching around but it's hard to find some support in the UK for pregnancies where your waters break early. I've seen some fab American sites but I dabble only a little as it gets a bit scary.

All was well with my pregnancy until at 28 weeks I started leaking fluid I was admitted to hospital and they confirmed it was amniotic fluid so I had suffered a ruptured membrane as it was more of a trickle it's likely a little tear or hole although they still term it as broken waters (premature rupture of membrane). Problem was it caused a bleed where the placenta probably lifted slightly or from a small hematoma which was later seen on a scan this resulted in me being rushed down from the ward at high speed and prepared for a c section....very scary as you can imagine anyway baby proved them wrong and was bouncing around unaware so after a few hours on a monitor they were satisfied baby could stay put. So now I'm 31 + 4 I've been home for a week and being closely monitored at the hospital and last check fluid was maintaining a level within normal range although obviously low. There is of course an increased risk of infection so they have to keep a close eye on that too.

Just be nice to hear of any experiences or anyone been through similar. It's all rather scary and every twinge, ache and pain causes me alarm!

I didn't have this but I did have very premature babies and even if you had to be delivered now your baby would be most likely fine, although would need to be in the neonatal unit for a few weeks.
If you can get to 35/36 weeks you may well be able to take baby straight home.
I hope little one stays put but do pm me if you have to deliver early and need any prem baby advice. I spent 4 months in hospital with our little one (born at 1lb 5) but she's now over 11lb and healthy as can be, it's amazing what they can do in those places.

Ah thanks for posting RB I'm glad to hear your lo is doing well I have been told so many good things about neonatal care we've not looked round the unit yet I think it's part of the positive thinking we're trying to maintain!

Hi, Macksie
A few years ago one of our members who was carrying twins had PROM at 24ish weeks. I'll have to see if I can find her diary. If memory serves, she managed to keep them both onboard for 6 or 7 weeks more and they were a bit early but both came home well...

Just an update of anyone reads this I gave birth to a baby boy on the 15th April I managed to keep him cooking for 4 1/2 weeks to 32 + 4 and he weighed just under 4 pounds.

I had a natural labour albeit very quick and Freddie came out screaming he needed a little help breathing at first but is now on lower dependency care taking my expressed milk through a feeding tube so I'm hoping he'll get big and strong as each day goes by.

Hello Macksie

I've also been following your progress. Sounds like you have had a time of it, but hope you and your husband can now begin to enjoy being parents to little Freddie. Enjoy! Boys are great fun!

Best wishes
