Not now. They did place me as high risk and put me under shared care when they saw 2 sacs in he uterus, but now there is only one baby I am not high risk as such, but I am seeing the OB as well as the midwife because I have had several losses, and a previous section. They just want to keep a closer eye on me I guess

I am high risk from losing Kairi to full placental abruption at 20 weeks. Not much has changed really, I saw the Peri, which I did with Kairi. I guess the only difference is now when I complain that something isn't right, they bring me in right away to be checked.

They told me I was high risk at the beginning of my pregnancy, and I saw an OB and an OB specialist because of having a baby with spina bifida, and from the twins having TRAP Sequence, but now I don't really consider myself high risk (not sure what the DR thinks).

I have had all the tests and extra u/s, and nothing has comeback negative, and I have been released from the OB specialist.

I am now after my scare a week and a half ago. I went to L&D for cramping, thinking I had a UTI or something, when we noticed that Gage's heartbeat was slowing down and it had a pattern to when it would do it. They think that since I was only 21 weeks the machine wasn't picking up my contraction and gave me a shot to stop them. It worked and because with my first I had a history of pre-term labor, they now said I'm high risk. Don't know what they are going to do about it though. I go back to see my doc on Monday so I guess I'll go from there.

I'm always HR due to thyroid issues however this time I also got it labeled because of sugar issues (too low), pre-term labor, age and my thyroid. My OB is already a HR OB so I didn't have to change. Though I did start seeing a perinatologist last week because I am already starting to dilate and they are worried I'll deliver before 35 weeks. (youngest my hospital can take them). He's not worried I'll deliver earlier than that but it's just in case so I know the hospital and staff.

I am due to all of losses, gestational diabetes, pre-clampsia(DS#1), peri-partum Cardiomyopathy(although I'm recovered off meds for two years and had a 14 months after I went into CHF), possibe clotting disorder, pre-term labor.
They might through age in there now since I'll be 34.

I don't think that I am. I was treated as such at the beginning of this pg due to having 3 miscarriages prior (2 unexplained). But now, I am being treated the same as everyone else at the docs office anyway. I'm much more cautious with the pregnancy than I was with DD though.

I am high risk due to PTL, hypothyroidism, two heart conditions, high blood pressure, an auto-immune disorder and severe pre-eclampsia with 2 of my pregnancies. I also have a loss and hit 35 this time around. I don't think those play into it. They don't treat me any different though. I go just like a normal pregnancy until problems start to arise.

I was, but in name only, due to "history of loss." lol. I think my other OB labeled me as HR so that medicaid would pay for the extra u/s and stuff at the end of the pregnancy.

With my new Dr. I was having 2 NSTs a week, and a biophysical profile u/s once a week, and a couple of times the nurses looked at my chart and saw that I didn't have any actual risks and were confused as to why I was getting all the monitoring. Until I explained about Cora, and then they accepted it as perfectly reasonable.

I am due to SCH in my 3rd pregnancy, placental abruption resulting in stillbirth in my 3rd pregnancy, pre-term labor, 3 consecutive miscarriages, antiphospholipid syndrome and MTHFR.

I have a heart condition and previous stillbirth - I'm not officially 'labeled' high risk - but I know that both of those things can cause complications for my pregnancy.

I'm high risk because of how many pregnancies I've had in a short amount of time. They wanted to keep a close eye on me. I'm not sure if I am still considered high risk.

I am. I have chronic hbp and resultant loss. It's controlled now, but they know that I have to monitored to make sure my dosages are accurate as I get farther along. But I think they believe I'm probably ok until after 20 weeks.

No high risk so far...with Cam I didn't get the HR label until my 32wk u/s when they discovered I had Grade 3 placenta (placenta was aging faster than baby was and they were afraid of pre-term placental abruption)..was induced at 38w4d...with Keegan I didn't get it until I went in to full blown PTL at 32 weeks...went in to the hospital and was 3cm, 100% effaced, and -1 station...conxs were about 6 mins apart...they were pretty sure I was probably gonna have him...but 3 days of mag drip and 2 steroid shots later I was released with baby still in my belly...ended up carrying him till 38w2d...soooo...considering I am "supposed" to be moving to NE at 34 weeks...I realllly hope this baby doesn't give me any 32wk troubles!

I am high risk with cervix shortening, PROM and preterm labor and placenta abruptio I'm a mess. As of my 9th week I was seen by my HR but I don't start going regularly for cervix checks until April 15th at 16 weeks. But I was seen there at 9 weeks and I will go tomorrow for 1st trimester/nuchal screening
