I haven't had this experience as I refuse all testing, but i have heard of others waters leaking/breaking early (although the one i can remember was about 24 wks a long). Her waters resealed, she rested, drank a TON of water and took a good amount of vitamin C and her levels slowly returned to normal. This one lady actually carried to 45 weeks, so I am hopeful for your lil one!
*hugs* I hope she pulls through and makes up on her growth in a little bit. Probably a lot of stress to her system to have that happen and has paused her growth as she recovers.
Bleeding from bowel movements, i would think that the slow spasms of hte bowels is triggering the uterus to spasm as well, blood is hopefully just from the cervix as the bloodendings are so open during pregnancy.
Keep resting, drinking and eating well, and I know all of us momma's here will keep ya'll in our thoughts and prayers! Oh and please check in now and then!
Ohyes, now is hte time when the placenta really grows too, so hopefully if you eat a good amount of protein every day, it will boost hte growth of the placenta (100grams a day, is probably good in this situation, i'd think...at least). *Sends placenta growth vibes too*
Here's hoping and praying!
