successful pregnancy after premature birth — The Bump

successful pregnancy after premature birth

Hi everyone! I just found out I am pregnant with #2 this past Friday. It is very much so a shock and I've been anxious about it since. My son was born at 25.6 after I experience a placental abruption. I had gone to the PET (maternity ER) at our hospital twice before returning a 3rd day that week already at 4cm dilated. I was already considered a high risk pregnancy because I have Factor V Leiden (blood clotting disorder) and need to be on daily Lovenox injections. The NICU experience was very hard for me and I spent most of my son's first year anxious, sad, terrified. He's a beautiful 1.5 year old with no lingering health issues as a result of his early arrival. Just wanted to know if there were other moms who had successful pregnancies after a preemie. :)

  • My now 6 year old was born at 25.4. My 16 month old was born at 37 weeks even. I did take weekly progesterone injections starting at 16 weeks.
  • My 2 year old was born at 33 weeks for unknown reasons. DS2 was born at 38+ 6. I also took progesterone shots weekly.
