I am currently 22 weeks pregnant with our 2nd baby (a little girl - due January 20th). Our son was born at 26 weeks after my water broke at 25 weeks. I had an emergency c-section with him. Being that the doctors don't have any idea why I ruptured so early we are taking every precaution necessary (weekly progesterone injections, etc) to try to prevent another premature birth. They are planning on c-sectioning me at least a week prior to my due date - being that they do not want me to go into labor. This pregnancy is scaring me to death - my nerves are shot. Every "leak", uterus twinge, etc. just hightens my nerves and scares me even more.
Does anyone have any advice, info or feedback to help me try to stay somewhat clam???? I just keep telling myself only 4 more weeks until I can feel the baby is "safe" at 26 weeks - I know it's not the greatest theroy but I feel it's the only thing I have to go on. I'm so scared!!!!! Has anyone been through anything like this.
