I am high risk because I have Factor V Leiden and antiphospholipid antibodies. I am on Lovenox injections and baby aspirin and will be induced at 38 weeks.

I was recently diagnosed with placenta previa. I'm 19wks pregnant and never had any bleeding thus far. I'm a little scared and if anyone has any advice I would love to talk to someone. My doctor said I have nothing to worry about right now because she seems to think it will move upwards, which I am desparately hoping as well. I am considered high risk because of this.[/b]
Hey,

Let me tell you some of what I went through, since I had the same thing. I had the regular ultrasound at 20 weeks, and they didn't say anything at that time, so I think maybe mine moved down, because I had bleeding at 22 weeks. For one thing, I would think if you haven't had bleeding yet, that's great. And it CAN move out of the way, actually. Mine was finally diagnosed at 28 weeks via ultrasound, and it was partial then. Unfortunately, it moved down to be a complete, so it can move.

Hopefully yours will move upwards, all you can really do is hope for that. If it does move down, you will just have to be careful, and listen to your doctor and do what she tells you to do. Unfortunately, I had to be in the hospital for a while with mine, about 7 weeks, and it was a long time, yes, but for the most part, my child is well now. He does have some respiratory issues, but he doesn't let it slow him down, and the delivery went pretty well, considering.

In any case, I hope it does move up for you. If it doesn't, they have plenty of provisions in place that can help you get through the pregnancy and delivery the best possible way. So try not to worry too much about it, just do what you can, with what your doctor will tell you. That'll give you the best possible outcome.

Good luck!

I started this pregnancy after multiple miscarriages...so my dr wanted to watch me closely, all went smoothly until 20 weeks when i decided to start having contractions... not really by choice of course lol, I was put on modified mild bed rest, and had the contractions down to about 1 a day, until i asked hubby to redo our room to make way for the babys play pen, at which time although i didn't do alot i ended up with contractions again, in hospital and on full bed rest, I have never got them to calm down quite that well again and still have them, and the other night they raged up again and i was back in the hospital... the dr says she wants me to make it till atleast 32 weeks, which means 6 weeks of this down 6 to go

I had severe Ulcerative colitis and had a total collectomy "i'm missing a large intestine". Then I had hernia repair surgery done and had a piece of plastic mesh put in so that i wouldnt get the hernias again. I'm high risk due the mesh stretching and tearing from what ever its stitched too. My doctor thinks that it will restrict the babies growth and says right now i'm on a cross that brigde when we get to it. My Surgeon says i have to wear a girdle the whole pregancy to try and prevent ripping. If it rips then I will have to have heria repair done again which is a full blown surgery. Right now i have an incarcerated uterus that my doctor says it should have tipped forward by now as much as lay in my knee chest position. She thinks now that my uterus is stuck to scar tissue or adhesians from my surgeries and if that is the case they will have to go in and cut the scar tissue away from uterus which Scares the mess out of me. I have so much pressure on my bladder and lower body area because my uterus is stuck in the hollow of my sacrum and if i didnt have the catheter my bladder would rupture. My husband has to drain my bowels for me via a rectal tube because it keeps me from having a bowel movement as well. I've very blessed to have my hubby!! I"m only 17 weeks and praying this gets resolved. I read that if this isnt corrected it can cause spontaneous abortion, gangreen of the rectom and bladder rupture. NONE of the doctors i have seen know what to do. My OB and her partners have never had a patient with my issues and I have seen my surgeon since i was 17 for my colitis and he said he didnt know how to fix this one. I asked if i was going in the text books he said no, but i'm definitly a case report. I'm very nervous and scared right now.......sorry for the mouth full!

I have been diagnosed with Gestational diabetes. Then at 14 weeks they said I have a short cervix and then at 18 weeks they told me I also have a low lying placenta.

I'm high risk due to 11 miscarriages, one still birth at 7 1/2 mos., previous partial placental abruption (say that 3 times fast lol) at 16 weeks which led to a 32 week preemie, 3 with preterm labor, one with IUGR. This pregnancy I have a subchorionic bleed which increases my already increased chances of having another placental abruption.

I too have ulcerative colitis, and was diagnosed when I was 8 years old. I am now almost 20 weeks into my 3rd pregnancy, and have found that it actually seems better when I am pregnant! I didn't realize all of the difficulties that could occur due to the colitis! I will be praying that things get better for you.

Just now finding my way around the forum, I am 32 weeks pregnant and from the very beginning they said I was high risk because of the following which REALLY suprised me. #1. They said my age, was getting older so that put me there (umm since when is 29 considered old age lol) 2. This is my seventh birth and 3. being my 11th pregnancy. When first started having kids I would miscarry, birth, miscarry and birth for sometime. So after going to my doc for 28 weeks and telling him there was something wrong and it being ignored I have switched doctors. I now have high BP, some sort of infection going on, the flu and strep throat. I asked for a c-section so I could get a tubal done and doc said no, before I left the office he chuckled and said " your wish may come true, the baby is breech". I am now reconsidering the thought of a c-section but may need to be done . I go see him again tomorrow and hoping he lets me know when all will be done, I am due March 3rd but would hate to go in labor and have her breech.

I'm high risk because I have Uterine Didelphys which means I was born with 2 uteruses and 2 cervices. Sometimes there is not enough room for the baby to grow and it leads to PTL around 24 weeks.

Thank God my first pregnancy was a success. It bodes well for future pregnancies.

Hi ladies. I used to be quite active on JM and I'm just finding my way back I had 2 miscarriages in 05. 1 at 14 weeks, 1 at 5 weeks. I have a blood clotting issue so I am taking Lovenox injections, Prometrium and baby aspirin. Plus I will have cerclage around 12 weeks. I have a reproductive endocrinologist that I see until 10 weeks, then my ob/gyn. Good luck to everyone here.
