Anyone else high risk? Type I diabetes has me at high risk status. Thankfully with my daughter it didn't affect my birth experience...had a drug free vaginal delivery and went into labor on my own. I also have hypothyroidism.

I have chronic high blood pressure, which didn't effect my first, either, although my ob was certain it would so she talked me into inducing. If I go back to an ob I'll be high risk again, but I'm hoping if I get to see a midwife that won't be the case.

Yes I am. Mainly for my antiphospholipid syndrome but now that I'm having twins, that just ups my status a little. Being high risk is annoying.

I will be, but not seeing the high risk OB yet. I'm positive I will have gestational diabetes again, and I also have a hypothyroid. I also had some tachycardia issues with my last pregnancy so we will be watching for that as well. I have yet to have my first appt, so we will see what happens next week.

I am high risk because of APS as well.

Not currently, but with my last pregnancy I did not deliver the placenta and my cervix had almost closed so my OB had to rip through and scrape my placenta out by hand, she said quote "I had to put in like a million stitches" to close up my cervix. So after 20 weeks I have to be seen every two weeks to make sure my cervix is ok, if not I'm on bed rest.

I had something similar happen with my first. My placenta had ruptured after birth and came out in pieces. They ended up leaving some inside of me and I hemorrhaged a few hours after birth. They had to do the same thing, shoving their hands in scraping and pulling out what they had left. It was an awful experience until they knocked me out.

I'm not sure if I will be high risk, but I will be monitored very closely until they can determine where the placenta implanted (16-20 weeks) since I had placenta previa my last pregnancy. I was put on bed rest at 24 weeks my last pregnancy.

I have been boarderline type 2 diabetic since they found GD 2 pregnancies ago, losing weight helped this past year, but already my sugars are up so I'm back on the diet. I also have hypothyroidism. I've already had my medication upped
