How likely is it for a baby to born early? Are there any signs?

I am 33 weeks, and getting so paranoid she is going to be born soon. I have no idea why I am feeling so anxious. Although, whenever I go to the doc everything seems normal, my blood pressure is perfect etc. Are there any signs she could be born early? Or does it just happen? Thanks!!

  • Not sure if there are any signs. *I* was born 8 weeks early 30 years ago because my mother was heavily into marijuana and alcohol.

  • Well, I was not considered high risk by any means and I delivered 3 months early ... I had developed an infection due to the placenta being torn away from the uterine wall ... the doctors to this day still consider me a medical mystery and have no explanation for what happened. There are only 3 scenarios which could explain what took place and my situation did not fit into any of them.

    There were no signs until I started going into labor at 28 weeks. Try not to worry but do report anything that you feel is unusual to your doctor just to be sure. Good luck!
