I am high risk due to an Anti-thrombin III deficiency (rare blood clotting disorder). I am on coumadin life long and currently on Lovonox shots twice a day during my pregnancy and will be through the entire 9 months + 6 wks after.

Hi everyone,

I just discovered this message board. I'm 33w5d pregnant with my first baby, a little boy. I'm high risk because I have Ehlers Danlos Syndrome Type III. EDS is a genetic condition related to your connective tissue and since connective tissue is all over our bodies it can cause some problems. Luckily I haven't had any issues yet although I do see my regular OB, a perinatologist, a cardiology, an internist, and two hematologists. Basically we are just covering our bases to make sure everyone is prepared for my delivery. Not much longer to go!

I am high-risk because I had a placental abruption when I was carrying twins. My daughter did not survive the emercengy c-section at 25w5d but my son is now 18 months old. I would be considered high-risk if I got pregnant again because your odds of having a placental abruption go up if you've had one before.

I am high risk due to PTL with DD at 37 wks, leaking amniotic fluid and then PTL with 2nd DD at 33 wks, miscarriage at 9.5 weeks. I haven't yet had my first appt and very nervous, just really want to see that heartbeat and know everything is chugging along.

I will be considered high-risk when I become pregnant due to having Crohn's Disease. I'm not guaranteed to have complications, but the chance is there. I'm at high-risk of m/c in the first trimester, especially if I flare...and I'm also high risk to have an early delivery, with a low birth weight.
I know that many women with crohn's have normal, safe, healthy babies. I will keep my fingers crossed that this is the case for me...and for all of you. xo
