I am classed as high risk because I suffer from spastic diplegia, seizures and multiple sclerosis. I'm 15+2 with twins.

I am considered high risk for a number of reasons. I have had insulin-dependent gestational diabetes with both my previous pregnancies. I have had chronic hypertension for the past 6 years. My twins were born a month early by emergency c-section b/c my doctor was concerned about possible uterine rupture.

Previous miscarriage, history of thyroid problem (thyroid removed with radioactive iodine), SLE Lupus, and Sjogren's.


Still holding on to hope that this bean stick... despite just being told by my OB that this pregnancy is highly nonviable...

I am high risk with this pregnancy for many reasons. Reason number one, I have a high history of miscarriages.
Reason number two, when my son was born (almost 2 years ago now) I had severe hemorrhaging after delivery which was caused for 2 reason, one I have an abnormally shaped uterus which made it very hard to deliver the placenta, two was because the stupid med student that delivered me pulled the placenta out, instead of letting it deliver on its own.
Reason number three of why I am high risk, I am carrying twins (was triplets, but lost one baby).

Hello! I'm being considered a "moderate risk" by my OB due to my history of DVT/pulmonary thrombii. I'm 6wk1d (just had my first ultrasound so my dd was changed around on me.) and I'm taking 40mg of Lovenox/day. My OB wants me to meet with the high risk team once or twice during my pregnancy just so we're all familiar, but hopefully, I won't be full-fledged high risk.
Unfortunately, being at a moderate risk put the kabosh on my hopes for a home birth. Ah well.. at least the local hospital is being completely renovated. Here's hoping they open the new birth unit on time!

Hi ladies. I'm 10.5 weeks pregnant with what will hopefully be my first child, and to be honest I'm not entirely sure what exactly classifies me as high risk. After TTC for 1.5 years, I had an ectopic pregnancy a year ago that was resolved by an emergency laparotomy, during which I hemmorhaged and needed blood transfusions. Following the surgery I was told that I have severe endometriosis and that TTC another naturally would be dangerous, and IVF was my only option for a pregnancy. My first two IVF cycles were unsuccessful (2nd resulted in a very brief chemical pregnancy), and the third round produced this pregnancy. I was originally pregnant with twins, but we lost one at 8 weeks (unsure of the reason; the baby had a heartbeat one day and the next day did not). I am having ultrasounds weekly through 12 weeks, and at that point I will begin seeing the maternal fetal specialist.

Endometriosis (which could cause premature birth and miscarriages, but not much is known about it tho) and a previous loss at 5wks. Im on bed rest currently for bleeding and cramping but am hoping by the end of this month I wont be too high risk anymore if the bleeding stops and once the baby is bigger. I cant wait to be able to get up and start working again or at least just get out of bed!

This is my first pregnancy and I was just told Monday that I will be followed by a maternal fetal specialist and that I will be high risk. I have a history of endometriosis, and I had a major surgery about 6 years ago that required the doctor to cut through the uterine wall, much like a C section, so I will have to have a C section with this baby. I also failed my glucose tolerance test Monday, so I have to go back tomorrow for the three hour.... blah.

I'm high risk for a number of reasons, previous losses, preterm labor, pre-e, age, high blood pressure currently and having a child with a neural tube defect.. and I think that is it

I'm diabetic, and severely hypothyroid. Type 2 diabetic, will be insulin-dependent before the pregnancy is finished, but orally medicated for now.

I honestly cannot imagine all the pain that you have endured. It's so wonderful to read that you're now past 12 weeks - what an exciting feeling that must be. Sending lots of good vibes to you for this pregnancy!!!

I am suffering from scoliosis. When I got pregnant with my first baby, I worried too much, but thanks God, I have normal delivery.

I am not sure yet if I will be considered high risk, but I wanted to pop in and, I guess, post why I might be?....Idk, still a little worried. I am around 4 1/2 weeks pregnant now.

I have had two procedures done on my cervix to remove precancerous cells. One was done after my first son was born, I had a LEEP done where they cut out the bad cells. When I was pregnant with my second son I had some preterm labor around 23 weeks that was stopped with a shot and a daily pill until 35 weeks. He was born almost 4 years ago, and about 2 years ago I had to have more precanerous cells frozen off of my cervix. I have not had the cells come back yet, but it's about that time again and I am concerned that not only will they come back...but that I will end up with IC with this baby.
I am just scared because they were able to stop the preterm labor with my last pregnancy after one cervical procedure, but what happens now that they've gone in and messed with it again? IDK. I am just worried.
I meet with the PA tomorrow and then she will set my appt with the dr and ultrasound hopefully for next week. I am just hoping for some answers as to what kind of monitoring they will be doing and what I can expect.

Thanks for listening to my worries ladies.
