Chances of Premature birth.

My 1st baby was born at 32wks due to my uterus being elongated and too small, she weighed 2.18kgs at birth. What are my chances of having a premature baby again the 2nd time round?
I have not been told alot about small and elongated utresus so your advice will be apreciated.

The recurrence rate for preterm labour is about 10%. I am not sure exactly what was meant by a small and elongated uterus.
