Quoting Living-Dead Girl:" I was on antibiotics to prevent the UTI's though.. they really dont know why my water broke! The high risk dr said it just happens sometimes... so I dont know if it can be preventable or not...."
Sometimes you can build up immunities to the antibiotics. They can actively test your urine every 2 weeks if they want to. That will show them if there are any resistant bacteria floating around in there. Preventative antibiotics can work, but they'd just have to be more up your rear about it. That's what i meant about the testing. I mean the chances of you getting 2 pregnancies with frequent UTI's with resistant bacteria if you haven't had this before are slim though. (If that was the issue)
For me, there was really no question what was going on. My first pregnancy was a disaster. The issues with high risk pregnancy is that even if they find something and treat you for it, that doesn't mean you're excluded from all of the other possible pregnancy issues. I mean, i had one successful pregnancy without any additional issues outside of my cervix. My middle baby was an IUGR baby and they kept wanting to induce me. They started doing amnios at 34 weeks with him just to see how his lung maturity was progressing and if it was safe to take him. He was just barely full term because i got induced practically the second i turned 37 weeks. Everything ended fine though. It was just dramatic. My 3rd baby's pregnancy seemed like everything that could go wrong, did go wrong, but I still ended up with a full term huge baby. You never know how it's going to go.
Even with all of that stuff that i was talking about, if i truly felt like i wanted to get pregnant again, the risks wouldn't stop me. There is never any sort of guarantee with pregnancy anyway. It's just that people who have had disaster pregnancies have seen some of those risks they write pamphlets about. For us, I always planned for the worst and hoped for the best. I planned on bedrest and/or possible hospitalization. I made back-up plans for someone to take the kids. I always found out who was home and able to take the boys and when. I made meals that I could stick in the freezer just in case i wasn't suppose to get out of bed. ...etc...etc...
