Premature rupture at 29 weeks

A week and a half ago, I went to labor and delivery at 28 weeks pregnant. I thought my water had possibly started leaking. I was picking up around the house when I noticed the trickling between my legs. I didn't feel like I had to go to the bathroom and it didn't smell like urine. When it didn't go way I called my doctor and went into the hospital. They did some tests and didn't find any evidence of amniotic fluid. So I went home.

The rest of the week went by as normal, except I had to wear poise pads... I assumed my bladder had just lost all control. I went to a wedding on Saturday and even spent some time on the dance floor.

I had my next doctors visit the following Thursday and mentioned about the continual leaking. She looked worried when I told her the pads I was using. She did another test and sure enough It was amniotic fluid...

I've learned to always trust your body, I knew deep in my heart that this wasn't right. I went a whole week of activity with my water bag broken at 29 weeks! I am so grateful that nothing serious happened to the baby or me. When they did a ultrasound they found that I had lost almost all of the amniotic fluid. So many things could have gone negatively this past week, but they didn't. Someone is watching over us.

I was transported to another hospital, where I have been for the last five days on bed rest. I will be here until the baby is born. For now she is relaxing in my belly, where we hope to keep away any infection, complications or labor. For now I just have to beat the boredom and hope my baby stays in as long as possible.
