We are expecting again and excited. I know the midwives won't see me because I had a m/c but that is totally fine. What I am wondering and plan to ask my doctor at the next visit, is if you have a history of preterm labor does that make you high risk?
I delivered my first at 35 weeks (so barely premie only one night in the NICU thankfully). But had contractions sooner the dr just didn't think they were anything.
I was in the hospital three times between 29-30 weeks with my second for preterm labor and then put on bedrest. I actually had to be induced at 39 weeks with him he started getting so big.
Last pregnancy when I mentioned all the contractions and preterm labor my dr said something about an irritable uterus... Is that a condition? I did not think to ask if I was considered high risk. I am guessing that I will have to deal with it this pregnancy as well. Anyway just wondering if anyone has any experience with this sort of thing and what if anything your doctors did. Does being high risk change anything for you with your pregnancy? Thanks.
