I had my DD at 34w and am 25w along with baby #2. My first pregnancy was the most normal, uncomplicated, uneventful pregnancy I could've asked for - except that I spontaneously went into labour at 34 weeks. I was able to have a natural birth and my DD only had to spend one week in the NICU (her APGARs were 9 and 9 - so very healthy, just small at 4 lbs. 12 oz).
I'd like to hear if there are any other mom's out there who had a baby early like I did then went on to carry their next full term. My midwife is not concerned that I will go into labour early again - but I seem to be hyper-paranoid about every twinge my body makes now wondering if it's early labour.
I could just use some positive stories to help ease my mind and know that it is possible and likely that I will carry this baby full term. I really don't want to have another baby in the NICU at all.
DS1 (6) , DS2 (3) , DD is here!

My first was born at 33 weeks. Second at 36, third at 39, fourth at 37 and fifth at 38. First 4 were hospital births. 4th was an unnecessary induction. So she may have went longer. They said she was IUGR and she wasn't. 5th was a homebirth. MW was fine with it. Had me take 500mg of magnesium a day to help offset any pre-term cntrx. But I never had any.
