I am high risk... in my first two pregnancies I was high risk because of my uterine abnormality and early preterm labor.
This pregnancy I am higher risk than normal because I have a ceseran implantation and placenta accreta.
I try not to get super worked up I figure the more times I have to see them the closer they are watching the better we know what is going on to prepare for anything that happens. Don't be bummed hun..... it is just something some of us have to deal with.
I'm not sure if they consider me high risk this time. I point out to my midwife that I've had preeclampsia twice, though not as severe the second time. She didn't say anything about me being high risk. But I'll be keeping an eye on my blood pressure come 20 weeks anyways. I really hope I don't have an issue with it this time, I'd love to be able to go into labor by myself.
I'm high risk and seeing a perinatologist. I have type 1 diabetes and have developed pre-e/hellp syndrome 7 times. I've been induced with every one of them before 35wks. I'm hoping to have a take home baby this time. I'm already on bp meds but 24hr urine looks good. I hate going in so much (an hour drive) but I like the extra ultrasounds.
They haven't called me high risk, but I'm higher risk than some, I think. I have a history of PCOS (even though I conceived by accident and without interventions), I'm very overweight/obese and there are plenty of pregnancy problems that run in the family. However, my doc doesn't seem to be worried about any of it, probably because this is my first pregnancy so I don't have any personal pregnancy history.
I will see my normal doctor but he will be using an ultrasound specialist due to my fibroids and carryingtwins. Hang in there, everyone!
My situation is very similiar... I have fibroids and also having twins. I am not high risk but have been monitored closely since 5 weeks and will have frequent u/s. Welcome to the group! When are you due?
I am high risk because of Hashimoto thyroid disease, two clotting disorders and my age. I will see a Peri early on but as long as baby and I are healthy, my OB will do the majority of the NST and growth ultrasounds. She has a 3D/4D machine in her office so it is easy to get in every week.
Thank you all for sharing, I also hate the term "high risk" its brings on stress at the sound. its all going to work out though, for all of us. Lets just all stay calm and not worry. its all going to work out just fine.
I am high risk too but not seeing a high risk doctor at this point. I had two PTL's already (my last daughter was born at 33 wks) so I will start the progesterone shots at 17 weeks and take those weekly until 34 or 35 weeks. Think my extra monitoring will happen more in the second trimester.
