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.

Likely, you'll start having contractions and be on your way soon. Good luck. Lg. ...Read more
