Welcome to ehealthforum,
If the leakage has stopped and baby is having good heart rate, and functions are not affected, then the pregnancy should continue smoothly. You will need to be at complete bedrest. Avoid walking, standing and any activity for about 2 months. Request for getting ultrasound scan done at your place (portable ultrasound scan) to monitor fetal wellbeing and AFI (and to evade risk of repeat leakage due to movement). Drink plenty of water and juices. Avoid caffeinated and carbonated beverages. Be in regular follow-up with your treating gynecologist/obstetrician. Report any abnormal or new symptoms immediately.
