Okay, so i was told yesterday that i am now a high risk pregnancy.
The issue with this is:
*my blood pressure is perfectly normal, and on the low side.
*I do not have GD.
*My urine dips always come back normal.
*And i had a 1/213 chance of my little guy having a nuero tube defect. We've been doing ultrasounds once a month to look for it, and they can't find anything wrong with him. There is the possibility of him being a small baby, but so far he has measured perfectly (with above average developement and weight).
So i do not understand why i am now considered high risk. I have to come in to see my OB every week, twice a week, to do a non-stress test and measure the amniotic fluid levels, on top of the growth monitoring ultrasound once a month.
The only thing i can think of is my recently starting an anti-depresent (Citolophram 20mg), and now i'm switching to a different kind (Welbutrin 100mg). Would this be the reason? I can't see why.
They also think i will deliver before my due date. but again, i don't understand why.
