My youngest is 2 and i had preterm labor with him for 8 1/2 weeks...he was delivered at 36 weeks and 6 days.....im 6 weeks pregnant now and havent been to the doc yet but was just wondering if any of you had experiences with delivering your next child prematurely?


*************EDIT************** I also had too much amniotic fluid.

i had both of my kids at 36wks. with my daughter the first, i had high bp and the dr said that i had no choice...with my son i went to the er bc my toe was infected and hurt bad and they said my bp was so high i had no choice i was being induced....with him i had no previous high bp though..i think it was due to some meds that the dr had me take...dumb dr!! and now that im preg again i have been thinking of the same thing but this time around i have to have a c section and i dont think they will do one that early so i guess we will see. good luck though and i wouldnt worry too much its not good for you or the baby! they were both ok, my son had some issues breathing but they broke my water at 9am and waited til 530 to decide ok we need to do a csection....but he was alright! congrats

my first 2 pregnancies were fine, but I went into preterm labor at 32 weeks with my daughter. I had 2 shots of terbutiline and I delivered at 37 weeks.

Both of my girls were born 5 weeks and 1 day early. With both of my girls my water spontaneously broke. We had to watch their weight gain but other than that both of my girls are completely healthy.

My son was born at 33.5 weeks and spent 4 weeks in the NICU.  I had am emergency C section due to bleeding and decelerations in his heart rate.  My daughter was born 2 years later and she was full term.  No problems at all.  Since you already had one preemie, your doctor will probably monitor you more closely this time.
