Hi I wanted to clarify if by having total placenta previa, this has caused my premature rapture of membranes? I was diagnosed with Total PP at 18w and at 19w 4d my membranes raptured. I still have 6 cm fluid and have only leaked a minimal amount a week ago. I am currently 22w 2d and my OB has me on antibiotics for the remainder of my pregnancy. If I do carry to or close to full term - is there a higher likelyhood of infection for the baby even if Im on antibiotics? I have not had any bleeding since dignosis and no further leaking of fluid - is this unusual also? Should I expect to bleed and/or leak?
