PPROM at 18 weeks

My daughter's had PPROM last week T 18 weeks 0 days. She is home on bed rest and has very low fluid. I would like to hear stories of positive outcomes please. She is 19 weeks today. The doctor said that if she can make it to 23/24 weeks the will admit her and give her steroid injections. But the lungs need fluid to develop. Please share your miracle stories with me.

Hi, very sorry to hear about your daughter. I also had pprom. Mine was at 17wks. Was given bed rest, antibiotics and steroid injections. My son came at 32wks so he held on for a long time! He weighed a relatively 4lb. He was in special care for just over a month and is now a very happy and healthy 5yr old.
I know it's so scary but stay positive.
I had a miracle baby so it is possible!
Please keep me informed and I you need to talk to someone just msg me.. I would of liked to have had someone to talk to that has been there.
Take care
Kelly xx
