Yeah, I had plenty of complications last pregnancy. I had GD and then later in my pregnancy developed cholestasis. The statistics on both is that I'm 50% more likely to have them again in subsequent pregnancies. Also, I will be having a repeat c-section since my OB doesn't do VBAC's. I'm thinking about having my tubes tied while they're in there because while I love my kids and will love this child with all my heart, I really don't think we'll need anymore kids after this. If it was a perfect world, I'd have 100 kids and I'm afraid if I didn't get my tubes tied I would try to do that lol. Not sure what complications/issues with that would be, I should probably look it up lol

I'm on IM progesterone injections until 12 weeks and have to get my levels checked semi-frequently.

I'm a VBAC hopeful if baby cooperates

I am sorry girl.

I had the beginning stages of preeclampsia (sp?) with my first two boys. And in 2007 I was actually diagnoised with hypertension. So I have to take meds now for my hbp. I have to make sure to always take my meds during pregnancy, watch my diet and try to stay away from stress (easier said then done). My last pregnancy was pretty comp free. I will have to have my kidney function monitored throughout this pregnancy just in case.

Melissa - I hope you can!!

High risk pregnancies are extremely hard not only on the mother but her caretakers as well. As we progress in our pregnancies please watch out for preterm labor. Don't just assume it will go away with a couple glasses of water! Many times you'll need to be on the safe side and go to your Ob or L&D. Things can progress rapidly, of course I know that because I have a PROM (premature rupture of membranes) baby I went from 0-10cm in 45 minutes.

My biggest issue will be with the recent identification that i have Factor II mutation, so will be on daily injections of blood thinners throughout the pregnancy and then i think for a couple months post partum.

I had a mild arrhythmia with Savannah's pregnancy, so expect that to occur again (it was officially classified as a pregnancy induced arrhythmia). I also had a weird post partum issue (that magically resolved itself) with some abnormal liver function tests immediately after I delivered Savannah, that they think may have indicated a problem not flagged while i was pregnant, so I suspect I'll be monitored more closely this time around in case that happens again.

I have to watch what I eat. I had gd with both children, and I had a m/c so I'm considered high risk.

I had high blood pressure and was at high risk for preclampsia. I could feel my blood pressure rising after I ate something that didn't even have a ton of salt in it, made me feel like I was having a heart attack. I don't have hbp now but I'm afraid I'll get it even worse with this one and I'll gain a ton of water weight, so its gonna be fresh fruits and veggies and meat without any seasoning for me for the next 9 months!

i have high blood pressure, i have had it since i had my daughter in 2003, i just checked it and it is 140/96, im on meds but maybe i need to have them increased. i also had a m/c in 09 at 10 1/2 weeks, so nothing is gonna keep my mind from wondering until i hear a heart beat..

I've had cholestasis with my pregnancies as well. I'm pretty sure it's like the most unfun thing ever! Statistically I'll probably get it with this one too... But I really hope not, it would be nice to get to go into labor on my own for once.

Yeah, it sucks. It's like the most extreme itching you've ever felt only it itches from the inside out... not amount of scratching makes it go away... It's miserable.

Christy already knows this since this our second time in the same DDC, but I'll post it anyways for everyone else.

I had high blood pressure and GD in my last trimester with DD, so I'll need to be followed for those again. I'm hoping to avoid the GD by watching what I eat a bit more, but last time I followed the diet 100% and still needed to go on insulin, so in my case it was purely hormonal. I've always had a boderline high BP even when I'm not pregnant, normal BP for me is around 140 over 75-80 so they just make sure it doesn't go too high during pregnancy. Last time I was put off of work after my grandmother passed because my BP was quite high, but then it stabilized again so I didn't have to go on any meds.
