View Full Version : Premmie every time??
Just wanting to know how how many of you experinced premature births with all of your children?
I had Noah at 34 weeks due to a bicornuate uterus and now pregnant with number three starting to feel a bit nervous about going early again.
We don't live near a hospital that deals with babies under 32 weeks and I'm hoping to hang on a bit longer this time!
Oh I was interested in what everyone would say but no one has replied yet.
I'm worried about the same thing. DD was born at 32 weeks and I'm hoping this one will wait a bit longer. Hopefully some more people will share their experiences...
I had DD1 at 34 weeks due to PE (induced) and DD2 was a week early and DS a few days early.
Beachmum, what does your Dr say are the chances of it happening again with that condition?
Yeap DS1 was 35wks due to PE (he had IUGR) and a bicornuate uterus
DS2 was 32wks due to the bicornuate uterus
he was bigger than ds1 so he just ran out of room
Im worried about having #3 and if it will go even earlier as ive been told i will never get to full term my biggest baby was only 2.1kgs
My doctor is honestly not sure. She thinks the chances are fairly high and although supports me in a vbac has a feeling the whole "turning thing" may be harder than it looks!
I'm going to leave work as soon as i can and take it VERY easy in the new year. Lots of dvd's and bed rest! But if there's no room there's not much I can do...
H&D mum, hope you can hang on longer than 32 weeks. Take care! (Noah was 2.1 as well and things were VERY tight in there!)
1st- over due
2nd- prem 34+
3rd prem 32+
4th over due
I was worried sick with the 4th but ended up going over, going into labour without induction and having a VBAC too.
I cant help much OP as I have only have had one prem,
IUGR due to HELLP at 29+6
But while I have a high risk with the next one they cannot say for sure.
I would reccomend plenty of bed rest and fluids!

No need to post, just read my signature.:fingerscrossed:
Good vibes to you beach mummy!:yes:
************Just wanted to add, I have a fantastic support team within the public system who I place all of my faith in to get us to a viable term with number 5**************
I have only had 1 premmie so am not much help in answering your question. I had a 32weeker for which there is no reason for her early arrival, as in no PROM or PE or anything else, I just started contracting. My OB seems to think the likelihood of a 2nd premmie for me, with no underlying reason, is around 30%.
Good luck, I hope you make term :)
my sister had her first at 32 weeks (1.5kilos) and they have no idea why he arrived so early.. however she recently had her 2nd baby at 38weeks and 3days :yes:
I'm probably not much help, as I don't have a bicornuate uterus, my premmies are for another reason which is PROM, my waters break, but I never go into labour, I can go weeks and weeks with my waters broken and no sign of labour :no:
my second boy was the only one I managed to get to term with (39wks) and my waters never broke with him (even during labour) not sure why they never did with him, spose its just luck of the draw with me
its my understanding with a bicornuate uterus that its not common to go full term, as it doesn't streach as much as it should
i'll keep my fingers crossed that you'll get to at least 36wks this time round :fingerscrossed:
I have 2 babies. Both were born at 34 weeks. 2.02kg and 1.9kg. They say if I have any more they will be the same as my body doesn't allow me to carry any longer. I had pre clampsia with both and little to no fluid. Both were c sections.
At least u know what to expect the second time round!
My SIL had her DS at 29 wks - they never gave her an official reason for the pre-term delivery.
And her 2nd child was born 1 day before her EDD at just over 8lbs.
Best of luck to you:goodvibes:
I had my DD at 29 weeks (11 weeks early)
I had my DS at 35 weeks (5 weeks early)
No more children for us as I think my body has told me I can't have full term baby.
