Lives in USA
On April 22,2015 I had a appointment with my gynecologist and I had been leaking water so I asked him and he said its watery discharge without even checking or anything.
I went home thinking everything was okay. On may 6 ,2015 I went to get a ultrasound to find out the gender of my baby instead I found out my waters had went. I was told to terminate my pregnancy because I can have more "normal" pregnancies because I'm still a teen. She was given a 0% chance of survival.
The best option was to terminate according to them and for a second I was about to until I found this group and started reading what is pprom and how many babies are surviving. I went back to the hospital and told them I was keeping this baby. My baby has a heartbeat I'm going to keep fighting with her. She is going to decide what will happen and what she wants.
I switched hospitals to get a second opinion was given the option to keep my baby and get addmited at 23 weeks. I was only 19 weeks so I had to wait 4 weeks at home. They told me your baby can pass anytime at home and we can't do anything about it I wish we can. I went home and put my self on bed rest drank a ton of water, no sex, nothing inside of me. At 21 weeks I got a ultrasound and my waters went from 0 - 7.1.
I found out I was having a little girl. Finally 23 weeks I went to the hospital 8am they told me I didn't need to get admitted anymore because my waters were 7. Got a ultrasound just to be sure the hole resealed and I had 0 waters. I got a round of steroids and I got admitted. At 24+3 weeks I bled heavy like if I had my period. I got a ultrasound for a second they couldn't find a heartbeat but they eventually did. I got sent up to l&d I was they for 4 days and it was just a scare.
They never knew why I bled but after that my leaking of fluid turned pink. I received another round of steroids at 25 weeks because they knew baby would come any day.
They told me if baby is born 25+ weeks 60% survival & 28+ weeks 90% survival. The goal for everybody was 28 weeks. @27+6 weeks
I bled again. They didn't want to risk it anymore because they said I can be in danger as well. They told me its time to meet your princess. It was the most scariest experience because I didn't know what the outcome was going to be. They prepped me for a c section because of bleeding. At 12:08 pm she came into this world & she cried !! I got to kiss her and she went straight to NICU. She stayed there for 118 days. The NICU is a rollercoaster ride. Some good days some bad, but the key is to never give up. On November 2,2015 she came home.
