Yes - not too much.: Preterm premature rupture of membranes is a dire complication of pregnancy when it occurs before 28-32 weeks. After that point, it is still a problem in need of urgent management in the hospital, however you should expect great outcomes for mom and baby with proper care and reasonably good luck! go to the hospital immediately for urgent care. ...Read more

Can stress cause pre term birth/pprom? I hear stress can cause it, but then others say it can't. Which is it? Water broke @ 35.5 wks.

Can stress cause pre term birth/pprom? I hear stress can cause it, but then others say it can't. Which is it? Water broke @ 35.5 wks.

NO really: Women have survived wars and famine and not all women under stress give birth. Having said that, the body is an organism that sometimes responds to its environment with adverse pregnancy outcomes. Pprom is typically due to an infection. We know the less sleep you get, the poorer you are able to care for yourself, the increased likelihood of infection. It's not an a=b, but stress can play a role. ...Read more

How can I know for sure if my water broke?

How can I know for sure if my water broke?

Tests: Unless its obvious, there really isn't a good way to know at home unless you have a midwife who can run some tests. If you go to the hospital, there are several tests that can be done to know if your water is really broken. Sometimes its obvious--a huge gush of water that soaks your clothing and gets on the carpet and won't stop for example. Best wishes! ...Read more

Can you still feel if your water broke during the shower? Asap plzz

Can you still feel if your water broke during the shower? Asap plzz

Depends...: If your water breaks as a gush of about a quart of fluid, you'll notice. If it's a leak, you might not. But the leak will likely keep on trickling. The real key to this question is: how far along in your pregnancy are you? If you are pre-term, i.e., less than 37 weeks, call your doctor. If at term, see what develops. Likely, you'll start having contractions and be on your way soon. Good luck. Lg. ...Read more

How do you know for sure that your water broke, can it happen before you have any pain?

How do you know for sure that your water broke, can it happen before you have any pain?

Yes it can.: Prelabor rupture of membranes is not rare and occurs pretty much without any warning or pain; a large gush of fluid (usually clear with a yellow tinge similar to dilute urine) wets your underwear and drips to the floor. It is usually mistaken for urinary incontinence episode, which is also not rare with advanced pregnancy. An examination by your obstetrician in the er will tell one way or another. ...Read more

37wks, 3cm dilatead, had first kid an hour after water broke, worried if i wait to go to hospital till my water breaks won't have time for epidureal?

37wks, 3cm dilatead, had first kid an hour after water broke, worried if i wait to go to hospital till my water breaks won't have time for epidureal?

Contractions?: If you're 37 weeks you probably still have a while to go. You can be 3 cm for days or weeks. Are you contracting? Was your last labor very fast? I would have a low threshold for heading into the hospital, but wait until you are leaking fluid or having more contractions. Good luck! ...Read more
