Complication in second pregnancy?

Hi doctor, I am 30 years old and 6 months pregnant. My first baby was born in 2012 but premature by one and a half months because water sac started leaking in 6.5 months. I was admitted to hospital and various medicines were given and was on bed rest until after a month the sac burst. Is there any chances of premature delivery  in my second delivery? Till now I have no complications. I have a healthy lifestyle. I 30 mins daily, have nutritious diet. Please help.

  1. Hello Dear,

    Thank you for writing to us at MediMetry.
    There are many reasons of developing preterm labor and rupture of membranes and equally it happens without any known cause also.
    Such events in past pregnancy expose you to high risk for developing the same especially if same risk factors are associated like infection, travel, trauma, exposure to certain chemicals or drugs (occupation related), incompetent cervix, APLA positive etc.
    As your pregnancy till now is going well, continue with normal lifestyle with avoidance of physical mental stress and any precipitating factors as listed above. It is just not necessary that the same thing will happen to you again but just visit your doctor regularly when ever you are advised to.

    Hope this answers your query. Feel free to write back to us with follow-up questions.
