I woke to wet underwear. Had a little more water leak when I stood up. No bloody show, clear. Is that considered ruptured membranes? Nothing other than bh contractions.

You're not in the UK by any chance are you? 18 hours is the length of time after which your waters break that most NHS midwives will be looking to use prostaglandins or syntocin to get labour going. Some will let it go to 24 but unless they are independent they'd probably be pushing for an induction at that point.
Thank you all so much, and thank you especially for the prayers. I'm concerned about the timing b/c I am GBS + and know PROM increases the risk of GBS transmission to the babe. I do not not not not not want to end up transferring the the hospital after my birth for a gravely ill little babe. I was having a hard time being patient before, but now it's almost intolerable. Plus I feel like I really let myself and my baby down w/ ruptured membranes starting my labor. As I understand it, this is caused by vit. C deficiency or an interuterine infection.
