Talking baby after having a preemie

My little girl was born 4 yrs ago today, 16 weeks premature. I had some bladder infections and it caused me to go into early labor. I bled a lot during the labor and delivery and both she and I almost didn't make it. She's now a beautiful 4 yr old and has no real health problems to speak of. My hubby and I would like to try for another child but we are scared of how things could turn out. Anyone else have a similar situation? Any thoughts would be appreciated.
