Hi all you mommy's out there. My name is Lori. I have two son's, Myles is 4 and Blake is 2....he was born in May of 07. I am considering having a third baby, but I am not sure. My first son tried to come early, but made it to 39 weeks, my second son tried to come early and did, 6 weeks to be exact. He is fine and only had to stay in NICU for two weeks until he gained some weight. The doctors can't figure out why my babies want to come early. I take excellent care of myself and I am very careful about food, exercise, etc while I was pregnant with both my boys. So if I had a third, I am worried that he/she would want to come even earlier. I have heard about woman getting the progesterin shot to help them carry to term, however I don't know too much about that. My other concern is that I am 33 (will be 34 in March). Oh, and I don't know if I could handle 3 little ones!! :) I do worry about that a little also. I know that once you get in your mid thirties, there are more risks also. I feel like I have been so blessed with my wonderful little boys, but for some reason I feel like I am suppose to have one more. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
