Tough call..: I am sorry you had pprom around viability. I hope you are hospitalized and appropriately cared for by a maternal-fetal medicine specialist adjacent to a nicu on ampicillin/erythromycin and after Betamethasone and prn magnesium sulfate.

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

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
