Thank you all. I know the power of prayer, and every word helps... I will post updates. They’re transferring her to another hospital’s prenatal unit and are going to try and keep her from delivering the baby for a few days, or hopefully a couple weeks.

1PM Update: mom is doing well. Still no pain, we’re about to transfer to another hospital with an advanced NICU. He needs more time, but miracles have already happened. Thanks so much, all. 🙏♥️ For sharing stories, advice, encouragement, and faith. All things are possible in Christ’s blessing.

Way to go, MOM, keep up the good work. I know how hard it is to lay still, feeling as if you are not doing anything, but, you are creating a life! Hang in there, sweetie! Praying for your family, your wife, your sweet baby continued health. ((Big Hugs))

PS: Dad, please make sure you are taking your vitamins, plenty of fluids, electrolytes, and get sleep. That is the best thing to do for your family right now.

I thought they had to deliver by 18 hours after broken water or risk infections? That's what they told me to get me into c section anyway. I wasn't as early though. I hope all goes well and he can stay in there comfy and grow. Much luck and prayer.

I was an L&D nurse back in the '80s and if a woman's water broke, that baby had to be delivered one way or another within 24 hours. But that was a long time ago, and maybe modern medicine has changed that.

Behind_blue_eyes 4 points ago +4 / -0

Had mine do the same - 30 wks even. They put me on bed rest and did temp checks every 2 hrs. Plan was to let me go as long as I could with no fever if labor didn’t start on its own. They were hoping I would get to 36 wks. (This was in the 90s so who knows now)

That was what I was told at my c section last june at women and infants high risk. They were inducing me three weeks early for pre eclampsia and I never got past 3 cm.

This is why we reach out to one another here and ask for prayer. Not only do you get the most sacred gift a person can give to another, beseeching Father God on their behalf, but we also share our own personal stories that also strengthen us. We truly embody WWG1WGA here and I love it. I'm praying for Mom, Dad and baby! Please keep us updated!

Hello. Praying for your family. I had a friend that this happened to. Ftom what l I know from her situation, is that her waters didn't completely empty and after time, the womb actually filled up again despite the doctors urge for a c section. Please look into this. Unless it was a complete emptying, the baby might just be fine if monitored.

Hope70 46 points ago +46 / -0

Have faith that all will be well with your wife and child. We pray that God will protect your wife and unborn child during this scary time, both before and after his birth. Make him perfect in every way and guide him to a long and healthy life. We ask this in God’s name, if it be his will. Amen.

As a retired OB nurse, I have seen many babies survive even earlier births. It is often a rough road with ups and downs. My strongest advise is for your wife to provide colostrum and breast milk as opposed to formula to your child. Insist that the staff obtain a breast pump for her and start pumping within 2 hours of birth, pumping every 2-3 hours during the day and 3 hours at night. Do not let staff deter you by saying, “she needs her rest.” Double pumping for 15 minutes is not to time consuming and it could be a matter of survival. Do NOT allow the NICU to give one drop of formula. One feeding of formula can effect the gut bacteria and effect your child’s health for life. Also insist you be allowed to do as much skin to skin time as possible, it stabilizes blood sugar, temperature, and helps colonize good bacteria. Also it helps with bonding both parents and child (fathers can do skin to skin too) and it helps to de stress your vulnerable child.

MammasAlwaysRIGHT 14 points ago +14 / -0

Mom of three preemies…I did exactly this ⬆️

  • breast milk
  • skin to skin Once I was released from the hospital, I would still be there for 12-14 hours a day to hold and pump.

My boy slid out "too quick" and they put him under the lamp for the first few days. Barely let us hold him.

If I could go back in time......I'd go to war to keep that from happening.

Thank you for giving that advice to OP. It so hard to know what's right at those critical times with enough conviction to force a change.

I'm sure OP would like any and all advice and reassurance you could offer. I cannot imagine the stress.

Hope70 4 points ago +4 / -0

You have to be strong and determined to fight against hospital procedures. They mean well, but often are misinformed or ignorant. They have blinders and want to do what is expedient, not thinking of the long term health or impact on bonding. Also it is easier for those in health care to give a bottle of formula than to encourage or help with breastfeeding. Just like doctors and nurses, there are good and not so good lactation consultants. Breastfeeding is an art in the first few days. Improper latch impacts milk production and infant intake.

Dear Father in Heaven, please help this earthly Father with the blessing of a healthy and happy newborn son. Help the Mother through their child's birth and help her labor to be short and easy. We pray that you have instilled in this child, the knowledge and ability to help make our world a better place to live. Make him strong and resilient to all the world will strike at him with. Keep him on a clear path through life and make him fishers of men as you had in Jesus' days on earth. Again, please ease this Fathers heart and mind in knowing that his son will be born beautiful and of good health. We ask these things in the name of your precious son Jesus. Thank you, dear Lord. Amen.

Dear Lord I pray that you protect this precious family and that you give them all the answers that they need to weather this difficult journey. I especially pray for the health of this child that you know and love...give the doctors wisdom to make the right choices. May they all feel your presence and know that you are able to do so much more than we can ever imagine. In Jesus'name...Amen.

I am praying right now. I'll tell my story as an encouragement to you, 24 years ago my water broke at 22 weeks pregnant. I was in moderate labor and rushed to hospital. God kept my baby safe and with left side bedrest, I delivered 8 weeks later. She was perfectly healthy. It was a long road and she had many developmental challenges throughout her life--but God has always been faithful. Today she is a healthy young woman--and I am a continuously thankful momma. I am praying to our Lord that he will be merciful and protect your son and wife.

I don’t know your situation, but the amniotic sac can heal over…. Praying this happens in your case.

Holy Lord, we praise and honor you today. We thank you for our many blessings. We ask you to intervene for this family. To act to heal and prevent infection. To hear our pleas for a healthy happy outcome here. Father, mystify the physicians with your supernatural healing! We ask because we know that doing so moves your heart to act. And we thank you in advance for providing for this family. In the precious name of Jesus. Amen
