You are in my thoughts. Hang in there, and let that baby stay put for a little while longer.

Hooray for babies that are staying put! Glad to hear your little one is still tucked in there! Hopefully s/he will get as much time as s/he needs to make a strong entrance! Hang in there mama!

Thanks again everybody. There is nothing new to update. Im not leaking as much fluid so maybe my bag is sealing, or Im not making any more. Baby is fine though. And the bleeding has slowed down.

Wow, Khourtniey, and it's not too much longer till you're really 26 weeks. Oh, I hope he/she (I've decided it's a she) will make that milestone for you.

Is there anything we can do for you? Do you want us to put on a dance routine to entertain you & keep your mind off being in the hospital? Or perhaps link you to funny pictures or naked men?

If you feel like you want to read about PROM from the UC forum, this thread is a good one. It's geared toward home care, but there might be info you can use in the hospital, too. If you're interested. No pressure to read it if you can't or you don't want to.

Jumping in from August DDC: You are in my prayers and thoughts honey. I know this can be hard and tiresome but if you can hold the baby in for a few more weeks, that would be great. Nonetheless, prayer is powerful and we're all here for you. Glad to know you're both doing ok. Stay strong and update us when you can.

Spark, I did check out that thread before cos I had SPROM with my second but never really figured Id need it again. Thanks for posting it though. Ill see what I can use

My waters have not sealed back yet. I am still leaking and it has gotten worse as the day progressed but its still not to bad. Baby is doing fine.

They took me off of the IV fluids but I still have the hep lock. Ive had a few contractions today but they arent regular at all.. Just random like BH type ones.

Khourtniey,

Have you read this thread:

http://www.mothering.com/discussions...highlight=leak

It's entitled "I think I've sprung a leak" by salt phoenix in the Birth and Beyond forum.

I'm not sure how close your situation is to hers, but she gave a lot of details in her posts of what she was doing to replenish her fluids while she leaked, how she handled hospital challenges, etc.

It's very enlightening and encouraging. I hope this helps!

Thinking of you. Don't know what hospital you're at, but they let me stay pregnant for 10 weeks at big Baptist in Little Rock. Dr. Chatelain was my peri.

Please let me know if there is anything you need. I'm off on spring break this week.

Glad baby is staying put for now.
