I'm sorry How far along into the 33 weeks are you?
My membranes ruptured at 30 weeks 6 days. I was told that if I made it up to 34 weeks without going into labour, I would be induced at that point. That's the point where the risk of infection is greater than the troubles that preemie issues can cause. As far as I was told, it was pretty standard to wait up until that point unless signs of an infection were present.
I was on bedrest, IV antibiotics and was discharged home after five days in hospital. I had a homecare nurse come and visit me the next day and do a NST, and the day after that I was not feeling movement so I went back into hospital. DD was born at 31 weeks 6 days.
She spent 23 days in the Special Care Nursery and other than her apneas and bradycardias was basically what they call a "feeder and grower".
I wish you the best of luck.
