It's sometimes possible to extend pregnancy for a short time after the membranes rupture, but generally there's no turning back. Most women who have preterm premature rupture of membranes deliver within one week of their water breaking. Potential complications include infection, placental abruption — when the placenta peels away from the inner wall of the uterus before delivery — and umbilical cord prolapse, in which the umbilical cord drops into the vagina ahead of the baby. The baby is also at risk of complications due to premature birth.
I can't imagine that if her water has fully broken and there is, as you say, "no water left", her doctors are going to let her go " as long as possible". Are you sure you have all the facts?View Thread
I can recall memories from as early as 2 and 3 yrs old, I believe. As another poster stated, most seem to have strong emotion attached to them. I almost drowned when I was about 3 and I can recall that memory pretty clearly.View Thread
I agree with oboingo76. You need to make it clear to her that even though she is an adult, she is living in your home rent free and she needs to do the assigned tasks or she needs to move out and find her own place.
And put a time limit in place, let her know that if she chooses to not follow the rules that she has x amount of weeks to find a new place.
I was a messy person too when I lived home (around the same age!) and it wasn't until I moved out on my own and the cable guy came over to fix our internet and saw how unruly my apartment was that I got embarrassed and started keeping it clean!!
Your husband needs to get behind you as well, because this scenario wont work if he is siding with her. At 22, I was working full time, going to college and still managed to keep a clean place, feed myself and even made baked goods on a regular basis for friends.
She is being lazy (to an extent) and needs to stop taking advantage of you.View Thread
You are not being unreasonable at all and you should not "suck it up". You have a right to come home and be able to spend time with your husband and child without your in-laws hovering.
They get to spend all day with their son and grandson, you are absolutely entitled to those precious hours after you get home.
Does you husband share this sentiment? That will go a long way in him getting on board to have a chat and set some boundaries for what should happen when you get home. There really is no reason that they could leave prior to you coming home. AND there is absolutely nothing wrong with you letting them know when its times to go if they continue to outwarm their welcome.
