24 weeks and water broke update

This is to everyone who wanted an update, ifi offend anyone b/c I didn't ask a question then I am sorry!
Baby is doing fine right now, we did an ultrasound and he is breech since we have very little amniotic fluid the likely hood of him turning is very slim so we will be having another c-sec when the time comes, normally this would upset me but honestly it's all for the better. I got word that most deliver within a week of losing the fluid so this does make me upset as joshua will be spending a lot of time in NICU (I hate the thought of my baby hooked up to tubes and crap) anyways we are still holding out hope that we can go longer. I will keep everyone updated.

Thoughts and prayers are always much appreciated

  • Good to hear baby is okay!
    Did they talk to you about drinking more, having an IV, and infusion?
    If they increase the fluid then you might carry to term, right? Isn't that the normal protocol?
