  • It, unfortunately, can be caused by a few different things. I have heard that smoking cigs is one of the main ones....

  • Preterm labor can start again i went into labor at thirty weeks with my first child they gave me a shot to stop them and then i had to take meds orally every 6 hrs to make sure i didnt go back into labor. I didnt smoke or drink and i was very active we dont know why it happen.
