Hello all! I am not entirely new to JM, I have been hanging out mostly in my DDC. Anyway, I am high risk for a variety of reasons. First, I have chronic hypertension, although it's unmedicated because I wasn't diagnosed with it until the very start of this pregnancy. Also, I had some issues with placental breakdown in a previous pregnancy that resulted in IUGR in my son, Jonathan (who, btw, is now a very happy and healthy 4 year-old). I was originally referred to a perinatalogist because of an error in my chart, some doctor along the way wrote down that I am diabetic, which I am not, but I am staying with the perinatalogist anyway.

I found out yesterday that I have Parvovirus B19, also known as Fifths Disease. Right now we don't know if I developed the infection prior to the pregnancy or not. If I had it before I got pregnant then there is no cause for concern, however if it is a new infection it increases my risk of miscarriage and stillbirth. Is there anyone else around here who has had Parvovirus during a pregnancy? I won't find out until next week if it's a new infection, so of course I'm freaking out.

I'm married to Jon and besides our son we also have two pet rabbits that share our home. I work as a directory assistance operator, although I've been at home for the last eight weeks trying to control hyperemesis gravardium and my blood pressure without a ton of medication. I've actually had some success with this. I'm looking forward to getting to know all of you, and hope for happy and healthy pregnancies for all.

Welcome! Its great to here that you are having success controlling your blood pressure without a ton of meds. That is always a good thing!

I have no experience with any of those complications, but always here as a sounding board.
