Thanks for your query.
You are having preterm premature rupture of membranes.
In this condition there is a risk of chorioamnionitis, that is infection of the placenta and membranes surrounding the fetus.
Herein, you would be regularly monitored with the help of complete blood count, and markers like CRP etc, which will determine if infection is occuring.
YOu would be monitored for symptoms of infection also.
In absence of infection, you can continue your pregnancy till the baby is mature.
Your obstetrician would be able to advise your further.
Take care.
