Okay so my sister in law is 30 weeks pregnant and her water broke on friday so they rushed her to hospital.....they slowed her contractions she was dilated to three cm. so on and so on.....
My questions is how long can she stay pregnant with her water being broke?

I have a friend and her water broke on Feb 8th, she was put on bedrest and her son was born on Feb 14th at 31 weeks gestation...so I guess they can keep it in there for a while.....I heard that they have a way to infuse more liquid into the uterus, but idk if thats true....

My first son's water broke at 31 weeks, and I remember asking the OB and the neonatologist how long. The told me that the baby can last for weeks as long as it keeps replenishing the fluid, as they did ultrasounds daily to assess the "pockets" of fluid. I was on antibiotics and some other meds to keep me safe. But I didn't last a week, I had him 4 days later. He is huge now, healthy as a horse, there are pics on my profile of him. He was in the NICU for 6 weeks. But some babies come home sooner, just depends on how well they do after birth. I wish her a lot of luck!

My hospital will do a C Section if the baby isn't out before 18 hours
