Not my business
My first was a preemie (pre eclampsia) csec at 32weeks 5 days... My second was a vbac on his due date (started labor naturally with NO interventions...
I think it depends on why but not my choice to make for others it's between the woman her hubby and doc.
Quoting Mommytoaangel:I had micro preemie twin boys they sadly passed soon after birth why i had them early neglegent doctor care i am pregnant now god willin i will get to term
Depends on why they are having preemies.. As a mom of 2 preemies this is my story.. My oldest is now 12 .. she was born @ 32 weeks, weighed 3lbs 2 oz was 16 inches long. She didnt grow properly while I was pregnant a condition known as IUGR (interuterine growth retardation) so she was developed to about a 28 week gestation baby.. I wound up having preeclampsia and gestational diabetes.. Because she wasnt growing well and my blood pressure was getting so high the doctors decided delivering then was the best thing to do.. She spent just under a month in the hospital before she came home.. All the doctors I had, I asked if this was likely to happen again.. They all said it shouldnt happen and be fine.. Well year and half later birth control failed and I was pregnant with my 2nd child.. Gestational diabetes came back.. early.. within first trimester.. so it became deemed as type 2 ( i still have it, and need insulin).. Other than that everything was going fine until right before my 24th week.. I thought I was going into labor because of cramping. ( I hadnt gone into labor with first one so was my first time even thinking it was contractions lol ) went to the hospital.. good news was .. not in labor.. had a nasty Urinary tract infection...but... bad news.. my blood pressue was 200s/180s.... so off to the state hospiatal I was sent. I was told I had to be there for as long as could with goal being ending at my due date.. Well... I made it a month.. My blood pressue was so high, my kidneys were shutting down... wasnt a good situation at all..They delivered my youngest dd @ 27 weeks.. she was 2lbs 3 oz ( which always makes me laugh as it is same numbers as oldest just backwards with the lbs and oz lol) and she was 15 inches long.. Also had IUGR so was developed ot about a 24 week baby.. She spent 4 months in the hospital before she came home.. . Due to all the complications I got my tubes tied.. Drs said another baby would most likely kill me, and that my youngest almost did.. I have 2 wonderful little miracle girls and I couldnt see risking my life and taking a mom away from the 2 I already had. Sometimes I wish I could have another but in the long run Im glad I wont be risking another preemie or my own life.
Nope, her body, her choice.
