Hello-

I found out I am pregnant and I have my first doctors appt tomorrow.

My first pregnancy was about 10 years ago and I was labeled high risk at 18 weeks. My Alpha Feta protein came back very high. The doctors couldn't figure out what caused it. I am just wondering what are the chances of another high risk? Are they greater if you already had one?

My sister has spina bifida so I am very concern about things genetically which I will make sure to mention tomorrow.

There's definitely an elevated chance of being high risk, but it is definitely NOT guaranteed. AFP levels can be quite different from pregnancy to pregnancy. You might want to ask your doctor to put you on extra folic acid to help prevent spina bifida and other neural tube defects.
