Welcome and thanks for the query

As you are having leaking per vaginum there is risk of preterm delivery for which doctor has prescribed duvadilan which will help in relaxing the uterus.Betamethasone inj is given for lung maturity of the fetus.Regular followups are required.On ultrasound examination , funneling of cervix is seen if there is dilatation.Other tests are also done like non stress tests , biophysical profile etc.Strict bed rest is required.
Best wishes and good luck
