Do you have to TTC differently because of your risks? Yes, I have to have perfect blood sugar to TTC

Did you know you were high risk when TTC previous pregnancies? Yes, we had the same issues and used the same formula with our twins, They were born early due to Lillian's cord flow stopping, and Genevive passed away at 16 days old. I am a little nervous about complications again.

Becca, just curious, do you have any health issues from being overweight? I'm considered overweight too but my doctor said it was never an issue since I don't have any health issues from being overweight...I'm just curious (i'm trying to drop some pounds any way)

No other health issues that I know of... But just with the added weight and age I was told I would be considered high risk.. She assured me that I could have a very normal pregnancy but I would be monitored a little closer than usual. Maybe she just a little cautios.

Name: Jacque (HopefulMommy81)
Risks: I have Spina Bifida, am homozygous for an MTHFR mutation, and I had a stillborn at 23 weeks due to anhydramnios
TTC or WTTC: WTTC until November (I think)
Do you have to TTC differently because of your risks? Nope, but we're waiting because I had a thombophelia panel drawn again and DH and I are both getting chromsome analysis done (even though Matthew was "normal")
What is the plan for TTC if so? Starting in November I think....on 4 mg of folic acid (have been for over a year), and on 81 mg aspirin as well. I have an issue with leave from work which is another reason we're waiting until November (basically I can't be off more than 6 days between now and April 14th to qualify for all of my leave) Oh, and I'll be using the CBEFM starting next cycle, too So grateful a friend is letting me borrow hers!
What number are you TTC? Our second, but he/she will be our first live birth
Did you know you were high risk when TTC previous pregnancies? I knew I was high-risk due to my Spina Bifida but honestly my biggest concern was that the baby would have SB- I never imagined anything else would happen
