Just wanted some thoughts on this. I am 4.4 weeks pregnant with my third, my first two were born 13 and 11 years ago, I am 35 years old, will be 36 when baby is born, and my two previous pg's I was put in bedrest at 28 weeks for having contractions with my first one, and second one, was dx with a bulging uterus. Both babys were born full term, with my second one born with swallowing issues. I don't go for my true appt until I am around 9-12 weeks, so not sure if my history and age will make me high risk. Any thoughts?
Yeah, 35 is considered "advanced maternal age." I was actually 34 for 99% of my pregnancy, but because I was going to turn 35 a week before my due date, they considered me "advanced maternal age" and offered me genetic testing and that kind of stuff. Your age alone probably wouldn't lead to extra monitoring, but your history of needing bed rest probably will--my guess is you'll get more ultrasounds and have more frequent appointments.
