Going into early labour
I am 35 now and 22 weeks pregnant with my 3rd child. I had 2 boys and am now pregnant with a girl. With my first child I had an emergency C-section at 40 weeks and the second child was also a C-section. So many people have told me to be carefull because of my age and the fact that this is my 3rd child that I can go into labour before my time is due. My expected date is 30 November but I am going to have a C-section again at about 20 November . I am a bit concerned because we live on a farm and I do not want any surprises. What is the chances of early labour before this date.

You are not at increased risk of preterm labour due to your age.
