You'll at the very least have a consult with a MFM (high risk OB). And you may see one at the end of the pregnancy. It will all be determined by the specifics of your last pregnancy and your situation right now. Asthma is not an automatic determiner of high/low risk. I have asthma and it was not a factor in my risk status. But if your asthma is bad, then it can be.

A high risk OB isn't that different than a regular OB. You go to more frequent appointments and they monitor you more closely, but they do the same things. Assuming things are going well, appointments are boring at MFMs too. Weight, pee in a cup, blood pressure, how are you feeling, etc.

Thank you Vicki for my awesome siggy!!
