First Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays

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.

I am Jessi btw married to Chris, I have Linda (5), Jeremy (3), our angel CJ and now the new baby.

Hi Jessi. I do think that you would be classified as high risk. Basically high risk = more office visits and more u/s. Which is not necessarily a bad thing.

Irritable uterus is in fact a condition. I'm on my way out to dinner right now, but later tonight I'll be back with resources for you. We have a couple ladies here with irritable uterus.

You would be classified as high risk. One reason is because of your loss, and because you have a history of preterm labor.

I wish you all the best with this pregnancy. Take it easy!

As for being high risk you do get more doctors visits and more ultrasounds which is not a bad thing at all...

I am extreme high risk and see my doctor every week... although it does get very tiring..

I agree with the others.

You might want to look into the P17 injections. They basically are given once a week from about 16 weeks to 34ish weeks. They help keep the uterus calm.
