Post subject: why was my daughter prem?
my daughter is now healthy happy 4 year old little girl, she was born 8 weeks premature by emergency c section and weighed just under 3pounds. at a normal ante natal scan i was told id lost fluid from umbilical cord and she wasnt growing properly. when i went back 4 a check up few days later i was told her heart wasnt working as well as it shud so instead of trying to get me further on in pregnancy they decided 2 bring her early. she was fine after c section and only needed 2 be kept in scbu around 6 weeks till she put weight on and cud be bottle fed ect, she never needed oxygen or ne other help as there was nothing wrong with her. whilst im ever thankfull she was so healthy and glad she was born early so she cud properly develope in care of scbu, iv never been told why? obviously as there was no problems with her after birth and because i lost fluid it must have been something wrong with me, an my body! is it normal not to be told, or find out what this is, an why? how do i no if it will happen again if i try 4 another? im worried it might, an if it happens earlier in pregnancy the outcome may not be so happy! i have had misscarriages b4-surley theres a link, a reason 4 these things an surley some investigation shud have been made!

Hi fairydust,

Have you tried asking your gp what happened and why - surely it must be in your notes somewhere. Must be awful not knowing why but at least your little girl came out of it unscathed!

Hi. My baby was born 8 weeks early too.I severely bled for 3 days in the hospital before she was bornand when my water broke they did a c section.They said it happened bcz the placenta detached from the uterus and told me not to worry that it might happen again.What is worrying me is that she is almost 6 months old and weighs only5 kgs and she was born 1.5 kgs.In the beginning she was growing fine and now she has stopped.Did u have that problem?

Post subject: Hi
I've had 2 preemies 1 at 34 weeks and 1 at 26 weeks but i have just found out that i have a week cervix, to get this info i had to nag the hospital, gp, hv and even went bk to the midwife that i had when pg, we are ttc so i have been told there is an option of having a cervical stitch put in place.
Sometimes little ones just need to come out a little soooner i think your little one tricked the docs as she wanted to see her mummy sooner, it's easy to blame yourself i know i do, please go have a chat with your gp and if they aren't helpful nag everyone till they can give you answers.
Good luck
