How do premature labor and false labor differ?
a premature labor occurs when the fetus has been developing in the womb for 37 weeks or less, a false labor is when the mother feels contractions and believes the labor may have begun hours or days before the actual labor starts.

There are many conditions that can lead to a premature birth. I had placenta abruptio which is a separation of the placenta from the uterine wall. Many times the cause for premature labor is not determined but it can be from a serious impact such as in a vehicle accident or fall to illness related or from the lifestyle of the mother such as smoking.
Smoking during pregnancy doesn't help, and can cause lightweight babies who are born premature. Sometimes there might be a complication which means labor has to be induced or labor is triggered early, or if the baby has a genetic condition. It helps if you stay as healthy as possible when you're pregnant as it means there is an extremely small chance the baby will be born premature. A history of diseases might not help the…
PPROM is an acronym for Preterm Premature Rupture of Membranes. To explain it, we should break it apart: * Rupture of membranes (ROM) is the normal breaking of the amniotic membranes that occurs during labor. Most people call this "breaking their water." * Premature rupture of membranes (PROM) occurs when the amniotic membranes are ruptured (water breaks) before actual labor has started. Sometimes, physicians may rupture membranes prematurely in an attempt to induce or augment…
This may not be the answer you are looking for, but 36 weeks is a little early to be inducing labor unless it is done for medical reasons and by medical persons. A baby is considered premature at this stage. Some babies can even be less mature than expected at the 37 week mark which is the mandatory limit between premature and mature.
