35 weeks and water broke Jeremys Mommy 5-04-2012 Blairsville, Pennsylvania 131 posts

I'm 35 weeks and this passed Sunday evening my water started to leak so we came into the hospital and they are keeping me here until he comes but they won't induce me till I'm 36 weeks which is not until this up coming sunday... We have looked up online and have had family members tell us that its not good to go longer then 24-48 hours after your water breaks... And its been over 24 hours now and they still are not doing anything to get my son to come out... Idk what to do we were talking about getting transfered to another hospital since they won't do anything here for almost a week but we arnt sure if they would transfer me

You are in a hospital, they are doing their best to keep you in a sterile environment. They're checking for signs of infection. They're probably a little more worried about the fact that your child is not completely developed, than the fact you *could* get an infection.



Why go to another hospital? They're just going to do the same thing. Also, leaving the environment you're in would probably increase your risk of infection.

We were thinking about going to another hospital because we have had problems with this one when he tried to come 2 weeks ago... And they arnt doing anything to help I'm lucky if they even remember to come check on me or bring me my food trays

Your in the hospital, the risk is because of infection and they can help that. My cousin went into labor at 30 weeks and her water broke didn't have him till 5 weeks later. You and baby will be fine if they didn't think so, they would have done something else

This just happened to my cousin. She was 34 weeks when her water broke and went to the hospital. She stayed in the hospital because it is a sterile enviroment so its easier to keep infections out.They tried to hold off till 36 weeks also but her son was born at 34 weeks 4 days. He was 4 lbs 7.5 oz but perfectly healthy.

What kind of problems were you having 2 weeks ago?

It normally isn't but has your water fully broken yet? You said it was just leaking not completely broken. That would rise the chance of infection. They should be monitoring you closely. If you aren't comfortable with the service have someone in your family get a number to the director. Your going to make alot more problems leaving.

When they checked to see if it was leaking they ruptured it the rest of the way by mistake and they arnt even monitoring me anymore they just have me in a room hooked up to an iv

That's the way it is in most hospital I've seen. They are so incredibly busy sometimes, that people don't even realize it. They have to prioritize. Help a girl go to the bathroom, or help the girl who is screaming her head off in pain? I'm not saying it's right, or that you should have to put up with it. But, the risk of leaving and going to another facility is so great,that I'd put up with a lot to stay there, knowing they already know your whole situation

They are probably giving you antibiotics via IV as a precaution. Also, they probably won't check you often, as that increases the risk for infection.

They will deliver you here once you're 34 weeks. They said the infection risk isn't worth it past that point. I had my water brake at 35 week and delivered my son 5 hours later. My water broke at 32 weeks and they would have tried to keep me pregnant until 34 weeks then delivered me, but I had her a day later.

They probably have you hooked up to antibiotics. When my water broke they didn't deliver my son until 41 hours later, but they had me on antibiotics. Trust me if they think you are at risk they will deliver your son.

It depends on what your dr wants to do. I had a friend fly several states and was 26 wks and her water broke, and they kept her on antibiotics for about 10 weeks and then induced her.
