If so, why and what is different for you than a normal pregnancy? How are appt's different, etc..?


I'm high risk due to GD. Actually my Dr is sure that I am diabetic, without being preggers, so she's keeping a close eye on it now.

I have more appt's than a normal pregnancy. I start going twice a month around 5 months. At around 7 months I have to go twice a WEEK for the NST's and a check up.

I have to do finger pricks several times a day and insulin shots 3-4 times a day. Along with that come the strict diet and carb/sugar counting.

I've been high risk for the last two, I have impatient babies/irritable uterus, so I have preterm labor issues. I had a 36 weeker and a 37 weeker.

I'm not labeled high risk yet, and I'm trying to think positively, but I will not be surprised.

I was referred to a high risk doc b/c of an abnormal test result. My 2nd test came back normal, but the high risk doc still wants to see me at 18 weeks. So, I would technically say that I am not high risk.

I'm high risk because of preterm labor and rupture of membranes and cervix shortening.
I already had 1 appt but at 16 weeks I start going every 2 weeks for quick scans of the baby and a scan of my cervix.

I go to my OB every 3 weeks for them to keep an eye on me.

My water breaks out of no where, I mean I'm fully closed and long and it will break without stopping. I can be fine and all of a sudden whoosh I'm breaking all over the place. It is not pretty. I hope it is like it is with KJ it broke while I was going potty and it didn't need to be all the way done. Owen it was clearly broke, but it just leaked until they just ripped it in the delivery table. Last one it broke and it just wouldn't stop at all. I wore a pad and I just walked into the ER with it pouring down my legs me crying it won't stop and I was soaked and it was freezing out. The ladies washed my clothes on L&D because my DH never brought me back clothes.
They see a little bit of shortening in my cervix and I will be in there every couple of days for scans of the cervix, because they can't control my water.

Well, now that I just found out it's twins, I assume I'll be considered high risk.

I already know I am concidered High Risk.
1. This being my 8th pregnancy.
2. Twins with my last pregnancy
3. Shorten cervix
4. History of PTL
5. Preemies (My twins were 29 weekers)

Not sure how my appts will go as of yet since I haven't had my U/S nor have I seen a dr yet.

ish. My son had a condition that the drs were not able to diagnose properly. We don't know if it was a fluke or Genetic. If it was Genetic that means a 25% chance of recurrence - so I'll be having an early u/s & then I'm supposed to see a perinatologist at 18 weeks for an in depth scan. I also have a heart condition.

I am lucky I am not at all considered high risk, which I was happy about because one of my sisters had gestational diabetes and the other gets high blood pressure and had two have c-sections with her 2, so it makes me happy I am not following down the same path

With this pregnancy, I'll have to have a cerclage put in ((fairly soon actually)). I was on bedrest with my son from 19-37 weeks due to preterm labor and IC. It was absolute torture. Im hoping to avoid it this time. I also have a pelvic kidney, and slightly high BP (only in pregnancy) I go to the doctors every 2 weeks for now and at 28 every week to the doctor and a NST every week. With my son it was much of the same with appointments, plus I had a transvaginal u/s to measure my cervix in the 3rd tri at almost every visit, and a FFN test every 2 weeks. ((predicts labor within 2 weeks))

Not yet, but I became high risk my last pregnancy at around 25 weeks, so I wouldn't doubt if the same thing happened this time around.

Went into pre-term labor, contractions from then on but luckily no change in my cervix, and my BP skyrocketed.
I was at the dr's office at LEAST twice a week.

I'm hoping for smooth sailing, as I have Holden to take care of and I can't just drop everything whenever the OB calls

i was on a million different medicines when i became pregnant but im off all the pain medication on a regular basis, i take it when needed now (and yeah im miserable) but still on others, so the docs seem to slow down a little for a second look. Ive had 3 back surgeries in my low back including artificial disc replacement and fusion with rods and screws so im just in a lot of pain.

I'll be high risk.. I had gestational diabetes with Adriana and I'm probably going to get it again with this baby. I'm not to worried.. I'll go on insulin again and more then likely I'll have another 6 lbs baby or maybe a 7 lb baby. So far I'm keep track of my blood sugars and everything is in check and I'm eating whatever I want.. I do plan on seeing my Endo in a few days..

Paula - We can be GD buddies.. hehe.. I know once I start the diet again, I'm going to need some emotional support.. lol Oh the joys.. hehe
