My water broke Thursday afternoon. I called my Dr. first thing Friday morning and was told to go to L&D to check and make sure it was in fact AF. They confirmed that is was and I was admitted. I was told that I will stay here until my baby boy is born. They have given me two steroid shots to help with the development of his lungs and now we are just playing the waiting game. My doctor will not deliver until I go into labor on my own. My last pregnancy was a C-section and that is the plan for this one as well. I worry because she told me that my son has pooped in the amniotic sac but she is not real concerned about it. It has been 4 days so far and I have not had any contractions so I am worried sick about something going wrong.

Keep talking to your doctor about your concerns. Generally the doctor will want to reduce any risk of infection and try to wait it out until after the 34th week to give baby more time to develop before premature birth.

I am on a monitor twice a day (once each shift) and I have had one ultrasound since i got here which was the day i was admitted. The meconium is light. It is a green color.
