129. Some of us have actually given birth and are doctors or married to them.
Any leakage of any amniotic fluid means that the plug is compromised. Having almost lost a good friend (another doctor's wife--long story) to the infection that set in after it had been longer than 24 hours, I can assure you that the risk of death is real.

Once the plug is compromised, the water's broken. Period. Doctors do not differentiate between a leak or a gush. Infection can set in with either one to the same rate. Once the water's broken, you have 24 hours to get that baby out, and considering he was born within that time frame, even though he was early and needed to stay in his mom's uterus for as long as possible, says that he was at risk, as was Palin.

Freakin' read up before you start attacking people who know what they're talking about.
