Hi, I'm a mum to 2 premmie boys. My first was born 7 weeks early and is now a healthy 2 and a half year old and my second was born 5 weeks early just over 5 weeks ago. No one has been able to tell me why I have had 2 premmies. When I was pregnant with my 2nd I was classed as high risk but I had no extra monitoring. I went into early labour at 31 weeks and it was stopped but I still went early. I wasn't monitored any closer after 31 weeks and no one ever went into what could have caused it again. Someone did mention to me that my placenta had been drying out but my midwife never mentioned this to me after the birth when she examined it. Infact I'm sure I can remember her saying it looked healthy. Has anyone else been through similar experiences where you really have no idea why and no one seems to want to hazard a guess? Is there anyway of knowing? Can you get hold of your own hospital records? I just would really like to know why because if I decide to have a 3rd baby I would really love to be able to make it to 38 weeks, even that would be great. If I know why in advance maybe I can stop it from happening again.
