My first born daughter Khali was 8 weeks early born March 5 2015 not due till May 3 2015. She came early due to my cervix being short 2 weeks before I had her I went into pre-term labor and was at 2 centimeters, docs gave me all types of medicine and after 5 days I got discharged and put on bed rest and had to take pills so I won't have contractions. I was taking them every 4 hours and saw my OB and she changed it back to 6 hours. My water broke got admitted to the hospital and doctors and my ob were trying there best to keep my daughter as long as they could but the medicine was not working and I kept dilating. I reached to 7 around 4 in the morning and my ob said since my baby girl was so small i don't have to reach 10 centimeters so I had her at 8 normal birth she did not need any breathing tubes and was just fine but still stayed in the NICU for 4 weeks, I really want to have another baby but I am so scared so is my husband. Being first time parents and going through this was hard and a lot of crying and people asking questions and just trying to get through the day. I just really don't want it to happen again, Any other mommies had a short cervix and had another baby again how did that go?
