Leaking Fluid and bein sent home??

Posted by   + Show Post
My sister (not the one who is pretending to be blind) is due in 4 days.
She went to L&D because she thought she was leakibg fluid. Turns out she is but they are sending her home.
Shouldn't they keep her there to observe her and my nephew??
Has this happened to anyone else??

I was leaking for a day and when I went to my appt the following day it tested positive and they sent me right over to the hospital to induce me. I was almost 2 weeks early.. DD was born 6 hrs later at 8lbs 12oz..

Ok. Thank you

I'm a l&d nurse and if the person is close to their due date with a small leak we will send them home, but with a leak at say 30 weeks we will keep a close eye on it. sometimes leaks will repair themselves other times a rupture in the membranes happens shortly after the leak happens. But I will advise her to not take a bath. tell her Good luck she might have this baby soon.
