I wish I had more information for you. I did want to share a story about my sister's experience. She had PPROM at 25 weeks. She was placed in the hospital where she was given steroids, drank lots of water everyday to help replenish amniotic fluid, and was monitored closely. My nephew was born at 28 weeks and 2 days. So she made it 3 weeks before birth. I won't say the time in the NICU wasn't difficult but he is a healthy 7 year old boy now. I hope this provides a little encouragement at a difficult time. I will pray for you and your precious little one.
