Pregnancy after our preemies support thread!


A pregnancy after a preemie can be a very scary time - we question whether their sibling will be a preemie too, what we can do to prevent it from happening.

Here we can support each other and share experiences and tips to get the care we need this time.
Angel mummies are very welcome too

Here's to a long and full 2nd and 3rd Trimester!!


Introduce yourselves, tell us your due dates and I will add to the list! Non pregnant preemie mums feel free to join in with the support and chit chat

Information you may find useful

OPPTIMUM Research Trial (UK)
Spoiler



Thanks to Sugarkisses I took part in the OPPTIMUM trial. I thought I would share some links for those thinking about TTC after our VIP's, or who are newly pregnant.

The researchers are also happy to speak to those who are TTC and considering the trial.

https://www.opptimum.org.uk/
https://www.opptimum.org.uk/Patient_..._v4_010409.pdf

At this trial you are given cyclogest (progesterone) suppositries which are said to help strengthen the cervix (or placebos) and FFN tests (fetal fibronectin test) to test percentage of possibility of preterm labour.

It is worth asking your consultant in your pregnancy about this. A bit of follow up with your new baby is done too, I think its every few months, just to see how baby is doing Baby also has a cranial scan at birth and placenta is sent away to be checked.


Bliss publications(UK) (overseas might find this interesting too)

Spoiler

Bliss have a massive list of publications and factsheets to download on many factors of having a preemie in neonatal. These are available for download here!

Hi i think my baby is due march 28th, need a scan to confirm this though.
My last 3 babys were all premature. 36 35 and then 30 weeks. my waters have always broken first and the doctors havent discovered why yet. hopefully i'll get an answer this time my last baby was born 10 weeks ago.

I've had to prems- 27 weeks and 31 weeks. I'm now 21 weeks pregnant, due Dec 8th but not remotely convinced i'll get near that. This will be our last baby, we already have 3 (i had a 41 weeker 1st pregnancy). I find it extremely stressful, i'm not enjoying it at all as i feel like every twinge could be the beginning of the end and as the baby isn't viable yet, it's making me crazy with worry. I honestly just want it to be over. Can't wait to add to our family but am dreading another nicu experience.

hi ladies..i havent posted in the prem babies forum before.
my son was born at 32 weeks (they think, my dates were muddled up) ad he was in scbu on a ventilator and then oxygen, plus feeding tube.
he came home 3weeks later. weighing 5lbs.

but hes now almost 6 years old!

im pregnant again and im scared of having another pre term baby. i dont know why he came early & the dr said its always the 'dont knows' tht seem to happen more than once.

im currently pregnant again, i dont know how many weeks i am? possible 6 weeks. i had the implant out april 9th and didnt have af afterwards!

this is my 3rd pregnancy (my last pregnancy sadly ended in a mmc)

the little girl in my ticker isnt my biological daughter, shes my cousin and me and my DH have a pecial guardianship order for her.

so...can i join u ladies? please xxx
