PLEASE HELP! 2nd pregnancy- first trimester braxton hicks concerns/questions
I appreciate the read and the help if you have any to offer!
This is my second pregnancy, I am in my 12th week. I've noticed that I've already started having BH contractions as of the 10th week and am concerned a bit. I've already done the research into BH and know that subsequent pregnancys can have you feeling BH as early as the first trimester. My concern, however, stems from an issue I had with my first pregnancy. I was never put on bedrest with pregnancy 1, but I was taken off of work at 23 weeks because of preterm labor issues. I went into preterm 3 different times with the last time being the worst. I was admitted to the hospital and given steroid shots to develop baby's lungs in case they couldn't stop my labor (which they did). I'm concerned though that the BH starting so early this time is a sign that I will have the same early labor issues as before. I had been told that because of my young age the first time, that was what put me at risk for the preterm labor. I'm into my mid 20's this time and thought that the preterm labor would be a non issue. Is the preterm labor something that any of you had experienced with more than just a first pregnancy? And if so, what were your personal "warning signs"? Thanks again for the help!
