I wouldn't worry as long as *nothing* enters the vagina and temp is o.k. I was in labor for 5 days (we're talking regular, timeable contractions) before transferring and water broke on day 3. I had no vag exams, no sex, etc. and there was no indication of infection more than 54 hours later. I did soak in the jacuzzi at home during that time, which is safe b/c the water will not enter (contrary to popular medical opinion). HTH!
