Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

If your membranes have ruptured at 32 weeks, then have you been to the doctor? Ruptured membranes means you must go for bed rest and maybe prophylactic antibiotics. Please consult a gynecologist immediately as you seem to be having local infection and this can in turn affect the babies. Hope this helps. Take care!
