What You Need to Know Before Your Next Pregnancy

You wonder if your next pregnancy will be as difficult. You wonder if you’ll have another child in the NICU, or if you’ll have to face another loss. There are emotional risks, and financial risks, and sometimes risks to the health of the mother.

When you’re beginning to think about pregnancy after a preterm birth, start the process by talking to your partner. Openly and honestly share your fears and concerns. Talk about how you might address a setback, knowing what you know now.

Hi ladies! I am currently 18+2 weeks with my second baby. My son came early at 33 weeks after an unexpected PPROM. They are watching me closely this time around and I've been taking baby aspirin once a day since 10 weeks, Makena progesterone shots once a week since 16 weeks, and so far I'm not showing any signs that I will go early again. Has anyone had a full term baby the second time around after having a preemie the first time? If so did progesterone shots and everything help you? My doctor seems hopeful and I'm trying to stay positive. We were super lucky that our little man only had a 10 day NICU stay and has always met all of his milestones and is big for his age lol. Any stories would be appreciated!
