  • What was the reason for your daughter being born so early? What does your doctor think?

  • The doctors don't really know why. I went for an ultrasound to see what we were having and they told me I was dialting. I was rushed to the hospital then put on bed rest. After that I had her 3 weeks later. All the doctor could tell me is that I'll be at a high risk for a repeat.

  • my mom had my brother 11 weeks early. She always wanted more kids and was too scared. now she regrets not trying. I'd just talk to your doctor and see what they think.

  • Hmm... that's a tough one. I guess maybe I'd talk to my doctor and also get a second opinion - just to hear from another professional. I mean, there's a risk with every pregnancy right? I wish you all the best!

  • Ask the doctor. I have five children and none of the pregnancies or deliveries where the same. I would not let the fear stop you...just make sure you have a clean bill of health.
