I am currently pregnant with my first baby so I haven't had the premature births that you have. However, I have had issues with pre-term labor and a shortened cervix throughout this pregnancy. I have been on bed rest for quite awhile now and have been in the hospital a few times. Have you gone to the hospital when you've had cramping? You're right around viability so you really should. They gave me a medication called Indocin when I was contracting that stopped the contractions. Also, they can offer something called a cervical cerclage which is basically just a tie-string that goes around your cervix to hold it shut if it's opening pre-maturely. I would contact your doctor right away and ask....

Why is my labor starting early? Do we need to check for infections, etc?
Can we do a medication/bed rest to stop the contractions?
Is cervical cerclage an option for me?
Is my baby healthy (therefore would he/she survive in the NICU if born now)?

You'll need to know what your options are in order to make an informed decision.

Good luck!!
