I was 19w2d on Wednesday and my water broke. We went to the hospital and was told there is absolutely no hope and we had no choice but to get a Dilation & Evacuation or Induce Labor. Our insurance will cover neither due to the laws in Ohio. We have opted to wait it out and hope to make it to at least 24 weeks. The NICU in our city is in the top 5 in the country. We know the risks are high and the chance of a poor outcome is more likely than not, but we think letting nature take it's course is the best choice to make. Two ultrasounds have confirmed that although I'm still leaking fluid the levels have remained normal, which is a very good sign. I have not gone into labor or had any contractions. As long as I do not get an infection we may make it to a point that the baby can survive. Please keep my family in your thoughts and prayers. Thank you!
