Hi, I'm Claire - mommy to Beth, Matt, Carrie, and someone new in July. My pregnancy is considered high-risk because all of my babies have been premature. Carrie was our earliest at 27 weeks 5 days. They are all healthy and doing well now. Carrie will be two at the end of the month.

I'm 13 weeks with baby #4 and so far so good. Right now I am feeling great and it is business as usual. I know that will change though. Probably by 20 weeks I'll be slowing down, I could have to go on bedrest, there will be extra appointments, etc. My kids are worth it...I'm just trying to prepare myself for all of that.

Welcome to the board. Are you going into labor early or is your cervix changing very early and before contrax start?

My membranes ruptured all three times, without cervical change or contractions. I'm a strange one.

Thanks ladies!

I had my first appointment today. It went really well, I talked to the doctor for a long time and even got an ultrasound. My baby was measuring right on target and was super active. I loved hearing the hb. Hopefully I will find out the sex next time, I can't wait!

From now on it is every two weeks for me, plus some extra appointments with the high-risk doctors. I was gone three hours today and left my kids with a neighbor. That was nice of her to help me out, but she's busy with three kids of her own and I know I need another plan. On to interviewing babysitters I guess...
