Well, I am pregnant again, for the sixth time. I have a number or factors that make me high risk. I guess we'll start with the first.

I've been pregnant six times now and had three miscarriages and 2 live births. All of my miscarriages are early, which leads them to believe they are either chromosomal in nature, or just a hormonal deficiency. I never got testes as I ended up pregnant the month I was to be tested. Then I had my daughter.

I also have high blood pressure that resulted in Pre-e with my son. I had him at 36 weeks and he was in NICU for a week. That was the most terrifying adventure of my life. I don't want a repeat. Thankfully, with my daughter, I delivered at 38 weeks with no pre-e.

But after I had her, I hemmoraghed in the hospital. Thankfully they were able to get in under control in a couple hours and my hemoglobin only dropped to a 9.

However, 3 weeks post partum, I hemmoraghed again at home. This time, I ended up getting 2 blood transfusions when my Hemoglobin dropped below a 6. It was very scary and it utterly terrifies me that it will happen again. Pathology on the tissue reviewed (I got an emergency D&C and almost a hysterectomy) showed that it was not placental tissue. They aren't sure what happened.

So I am concerned for a number of reasons. First I have to make it past the miscarriage phase for my body. Then I have to control my BP and hope I don't get pre-e and then I have to pray that I don't hemmoraghe again. This will be our last baby as I will be getting my tubes tied. I feel very on edge and nervous.

Wow that is a lot to worry about. I have no experience in any of those areas, so I am no real help. My pregnancy is high risk for something totally different.

But am here as a sounding board. Good luck and I hope this pregnancy has the best outcome.
