Just thought it would be intersting to see how many moms were high risk, why and how many week you were when you delivered..

I was high risk with both of my kids, My son it was because of family history.. To start is was the same thing with my daughter but at 12 weeks she was found to have Gastroschisis plus and a systic hygroma on the back of her neck.. ( her insides were outside and the other just went away) had my son at 37 weeks do to small framed.. ( i am only 5'3' n hubby is 5'11' ) daughter was 36 weeks and was due to VERY low fluid. ( it was 2.5% or 3%) I started labor normal but was induced to a point.. ( had to get more regular contrations going) I would like to take this time to Thank every one for sharing there stories..

I started out being high risk because I had a low placenta. That fixed itself but then i started having problems with my liver enzyms going up real high and they couldnt figure out why. I ended up going into labor with her when i was 31 weeks. I went to the doctor on a thursday and the told me i was 80% and 1 centimeter so i had to go to the hospital. They obviously knew she was gonna be coming because they started to giveme steroids to develop her lungs. My water broke 4:30 am on sunday and i had her 2:36 am monday may 19th 2008. I was hoffified when they tod me I was in labor monday morning and nobody was with me. My biggest fear was that she wasnt developed enough [obviously. that would be anyone's concern right?]. I got lucky though. Nadya only had jaundice and slight apnia [ i dont think i spelled that right ]. Now she is 20 months old [almost 21 months] and she is just like any other child .... of course alot smaller though...

I wasn't considered high risk with 1st pregnancy, 2nd i went into pre term labour at 32 weeks, this stopped thankfully and he was born at 38 weeks.
Preg 3 was watched closley, and was in and out of hospital, was emergency c section at 35 wks with prem labour aswell..( not fun epidural with contractions lol)
preg 4 was watched closley but went well till 30 wks and she arrived at 35 wks with another c section.
they all have there health issues, but more so for Declan who was emergancy c section at 35 wks.
I don't know if my pregnancies had much effect of their current health issues but i will certainly remember how they got here.

I was high risk due to preE, high blood pressure came with that, and gestational diabetes my son was 3 weeks 6 days early but they induced me at the hospital, had to break my water cause they werent getting a good reading on my son, and then they had to take him by c section because i had my epidural and it slowed down my progress, i was stuck dialated at 4.

My Dr said I wasn't at high risk unless the baby got to be over 8lbs. I have a fibroid that connected itself to the outside of the uterine walls. It didn't harm the baby, just caused a lot of pain for me. I have had the fibroid for over 10 years but not one Dr or specialist could figure out what was causing my pain. When I became pregnant, the fibroid started to grow. My Dr sent me to a Fetal Care Specialist who figured out what it was. I still have the fibroid and we're hoping to remove it this year. My little munchkin was born at 37 weeks. She was 7lbs and 20.47". Other than her being born at 37 weeks, she was just fine. But anything before 38wks is premature. I recently learned that she is preterm not premature - didn't realize there was a difference. Oddly enough, her weight and length were "normal baby size" but she still doesn't fit newborn clothes. I have to buy preemie clothes just so she has things that fit. So all the new warm clothes we got from friends and family, she can't wear. By the time she can, the weather will be too warm for them.
But our little girl is doing just fine. I don't think of her as behind other one month babies. She's learning to hold her head up and smiling just like other one month olds that I know.

I wasn't high risk with my first child until about 20 weeks when my blood pressure spiked and i started to get pre eclamptic, I was induced at 37 weeks after 7 weeks of bedrest and preterm labor, She was healthy other than IUGR from lack of circulation of the cord. After a miscarriage and history of that I was high risk with my son, the pregnacy was great until about half way through again when I started having very preterm labor, after weeks of bedrest my water broke at 34 weeks and my son was born at 5lbs 11 oz he was immediatly intebated and flown 2 hours away to the NICU where he spent 4 weeks, with premature lung, sereve jaundice, metabolic acidosis and acute renal failure. He has fully recovered and is 18 months old now and healthy.

My daughter was conceived by IVF- ICSI, making me high risk. Originally a twin pregnancy, losing the second twin at 8 weeks and I needed progesterone pessaries until 13 weeks. I was diagnosed with Gestation Diabetes requiring insulin at 28weeks. And i went into spontaneous labour and ruptured my membranes at 32 weeks and only just made it to hospital in time to deliver a beautiful footling breech baby girl!! I am a midwife! Midwives always do it with drama!!!

With my first I wasn't high risk until 34+ weeks when I was diagnosed with severe pre-eclampsia and HELLP syndrome. I delivered 2 days after being admitted to hospital so that they could give me steroids to make sure she could breathe better when I finally delivered. On admittance to the hospital I was told I would deliver within 48 hours anyway but what happened I was not ready for. It was a matter of life and death for both of us. Luckily, she was born with just a slight case of jaundice which is normal.

With this pregnancy (I'm 32wk+2days) I am high risk because I am type 2 diabetic and because I had pre-eclampsia and HELLP syndrome with my first pregnancy.

I was high risk because of Type 1 Diabetes. I was 27 1/2 weeks when I had mine.

[deleted account]

I have had 8 pregnancies. We have 5 living children. My mom also had preterm pregnancies with my brother and myself (2 of 4 kids). Our first 4 children are 3 1/2 years apart. My first two pregnancies last to 37 weeks (both girls). Our son came at 34 1/2 (shorten cervix.) Our next daughter born at 32 weeks (also cervix issues and preterm labor.) Our son born in June (#5) was also a 32 weeker. I was high risk with all but my second pregnancy. They are all healthy and great.

My daughter was also born at 36wks with Gastroschisis, found at 11wks. I was high risk because of it as well, they made me stop working, told me I couldn't stand for too long, or sit for too long. She was in the NICU for 4wks, then they moved her to her own room for an additional 4wks.

I was high risk with my second because of what had happened during my first. I started to go in labor with my second at 32 weeks but was taking shot's to stop it from coming. I managed to hold out until I was 37 weeks but I bleed all the way through my pregnancy and only gained 7lbs. They couldn't give me any reason except that my uterus was shaped like a Y and that women who has that are more likely to have preterm babies.

I was high risk with pre-eclampsia. I was losing fluid and my son was delivered via c-section at 33 weeks. He was 4 pds and dropped to around 3pds. We spent 3 weeks in the NICU. He is now 3 1/2 and you would never know he was a preemie (which is what everyone told me would happen!). He did have a clubbed foot and some issues with neck strength and some developmental delays but he is completly caught up. May eventually need surgery on the foot, but we will cross that bridge in another 5 years. Thanks for sharing!

I was only a risk with my first for advanced maternal age (36), otherwise fine. But had issues with preterm labor and was put on bedrest at 29 weeks. He was born at 35 weeks. With 2nd, was high risk due to issues with 1st.....taken out of work at 20 weeks, light activity, and had to do testosterone shots for 6 weeks. She was born 2 days shy of 38 weeks. I did have BH from about 20 weeks on with her...almost constantly with any activity.

This was my first pregnancy,and I didn't think i was high risk at all. Amelia was found to have S.U.A, Single Umbilical Artery, but i was told it would be fine, it didn't mean she'd come early etc. I had planned on working until Dec 1st, my due date being the 20th, and on the 24th of Oct, on my day off (figures), I was having mild cramping like feelings. Thinking they were Braxton HIcks that i had heard so much about i just drank lots of cold water and hoped they'd settle down. At 1am it was enough for me, I woke my boyfriend and off to teh hospital we went, where for the next 2 and a half days i was back and forth from Labour and Delivery to my room, which i had to share with a poor girl who had to listen to me complain because of the world's slowest labour. Finally after countless steroid and morphine shots, and one suppository (every time i tried to use the bathroom i'd go into labour) and my what felt like 100th time to L&D I was still only 1cm and the baby's fluid around her was getting low, and I ad started to bleed, all without my water breaking. They decided to take her right away by emergency c section. In less than an hour I met the love of my life. Amelia Ann was born at 28 wks, 4 lbs 8 oz, 17 inches. She sounded more like a kitten then a baby, tho i cannot say te same now :) She stayed in the NICU til Dec 3rd, as she wasn't gaining weight well at first. Her breathing was great and unassisted tho she did have bouts of Apnea frequently at first. Now she's 2 months and 2 weeks and nearly 10 lbs! :) I never really thought of her as a preemie, tho the month in the unit was extremely hard, she was just small is all :)We feel blessed she came as healthy as she did and I certainly hope other families get equally blessed :) Love Pauline and Amelia

I was high risk with both my girls b/c of threatened miscarriage, i have had 2 miscarriages and a molar pregnancy, basically something was wrong with the baby from the beginning and in the end there was no baby just a mass of cysts that were starting to turn cancerous.... very scary... but any first pregnancy wasn't too bad just alot of problems with bleeding so i was on bed rest the entire pregnancy.... she was born 10 days early at 6 lbs 14 oz... my second though i had a lot of problems with bleeding as well so i had alot of ultrasounds they found there was bleeding somewhere outside of her sac, so i was on bed rest for the majority of that pregnancy too... then my water broke at 30 wks and i was hospitalized until i had her a week later at 31 wks... i was told that she was alot smaller than she should be, and she would have to stay in nicu for quite awhile... she was born at 2 lbs 3oz and there was no other problems until she was handled by nurses after they handled two babies next to her that had c-dif at a week old... she was very sick for a long time so that really held her back.... but she is 9 months old is doing great....

I was high risk orginally because of being hypothyroid and fertility issues... my OB just wanted extra monitoring. But then the genetic testing came back with a 1:41 chance of Down syndrome, so that ended up being the focus. I delivered at 33 weeks due to preeclampsia - happened so quickly that I hate to think what would've happened if I hadn't been high risk and seeing the doctor so very often.

I have two preemies. They are one and two now, 9 1/2 months apart bc Molly arrived so early.
I was high risk only bc of my age, 34 with my son. And at my first ultrasound they saw that I have a bicornuate uterus (heart shaped utuerus). I was diabetic with him around 26 weeks and at 32 weeks my BP sky rocketed. I was hospitalized with protiens in urine and eclampsia for 10 days bf my son was born at 35 weeks.
Of course I was high risk for Molly
Had none of the issues (except I didnt exchange my uterus, still heart shaped) with her, my water broke with her at 32 weeks, labor was stopped after 12 hours , given steriods to develop her lungs and she was born 4 days later, by emergency c section, a nurse came in to monitor the baby since my water had broken they knew she was in low fluids and her heart beat became irregular, i delivered her approx. 10 mins after nurse called the doctor from my room.
My son was in nicu for 20 days and dtr for 43 torturing days.
both are in EI now for different reasons and the rest time will tell, but for the most part them seem like normal healthy kids developing at their own rate, not too far behind

I was high risk due to bleeding until 17 weeks, then moved to normal risk. I went into labor at 21 weeks and moved back up to high risk. I spent 1 week at home and 4 in the hospital on bed rest and delivered at 26 weeks because my water broke and we were unable to stop labor. I had an intra-uterine infection.

Next time, I will start out normal risk.

i was high risk, my waters went at 30 week, got took in hospital at 34 weeks, also the doctors said if id have gone to full term, the baby would have only been 5lb, so they knew she was gonna be small, she was born at 36 weeks weighing 4lb 2oz

Hi I wasnt high risk at the start of my first pregnancy but at 20 weeks I was having regular what I thought were braxton hicks, at my scan my midwife said no that wasnt right and sent me of for more tests they found that my cervix was funeling and treated me with progesterone pesaries and I held on till 36 weeks after a horrible labour my son was born and soon had breathing problems caused by strep-b !! he spent 2 weeks in scbu. My second pregnancy was automaticaly treated as high risk due to my cervix and then at my scan Iwas told it was identical twins so it was then even more high risk of poor cervix twin-to-twin and strep-b ! my twins came at 25 weeks sadly we lost one at 2 days. My 3rd pregnancy was lost at 11 weeks. My 4th was treated as high risk but the hospital was more relaxed and I had no issues other than lots of pain until 32 weeks when my waters broke ,my daughter was breach, but I didnt go into labour for another day,when labour did start it was very quick she needed to be reminded to breathe and spent nearly 3 weeks in hospital.

i was high risk from the start due to my asthma but ended up with preclamsia and had my son 7 and half weeks early. he spent 11 days in the baby nicu. he was 4 pounds and 6 oz and 16 and quarter inches. they took him by c-section and he still didn't want to leave the womb. they had to dig up to almost my ribs to get him! now he is as active outside the womb as he was inside! he has earned the name "scooter butt" because he just won't sit still. my ob/gyn started calling him that since i was 14 weeks pregnant with him. lol

I was high risk as well. I am a diabetic, and most diabetics do not carry their children to full term. I had my son at 35 weeks, he was a LARGE premee. He was 6lb 11oz. But diabetics also have large babies. He was in the NICU for 17 days, his lungs where delevoped when he was born so we got lucky there. He had stopped breathing once, but started right up when the nurse patted his butt. I don't know about you girls, but I am afraid to have another baby, I don't want this to happpen again!

I was not high risk with my first pregnancy. I woke up at 32 weeks pregnant to make my 5th trip to the bathroom that night and my mucus plug came out in the toilet. I tried to lay back down thinking I should probably be worried but I figured I was overreacting. I had no idea what it was. I couldn't stop "peeing" all night so my husband at the time called the dr and he had me come in to check first thing in the morning. When he used the speculum to check me it broke my water...all over him and the floor. I was taken to the hospital and transferred to a larger hospital an hour later. I delivered my son 3 days later. He stayed in the hospital for 2 weeks and he is now a perfectly healthy 9 year old.

We discovered I was high risk from 19 weeks when they found out that my son has Spina Bifida and for his sake we needed twice weekly scans and checkups, at 29 weeks I was admitted to hospital with BP through the roof and severe eclampsia. My son was born at 32 weeks and is healthy as anything, he's starting to take his first steps at two years old - A dream come true for us since the doctors told us he'd spend his life in a wheelchair.

I wasn't high risk until about 27 weeks. My one-hour glucose level was a little high, so I had to come back to do the three-hour test. When one of those levels came back elevated, I was sent to the high risk OB for further screening. I also began having elevated blood pressure around 26 weeks. Even though my protein count in the urine collection was low, I was told to take it easy at work and keep my feet up at home. When I went for my 32 week check up (I was 31 weeks 2 days) my blood pressure had spiked to 150/100 and I had gained 5 pounds in a week. My OB sent me directly to the hospital to be monitored. After 2 days of constant blood pressure monitoring, a second urine collection that came back perfectly fine, and 6 or 7 lab draws my blood pressure still hadn't come back down. On my third day in the hospital (July 4, 2009) I woke up with a slight headache, but otherwise felt fine. That night around 8:30 I started feeling really sick to my stomach and had cramping up in my rib cage. When it didn't subside, the nurses gave me some pain medications and something to help me sleep. I don't really remember the rest of that night or the following morning. I remember being prepped for an emergency c-section, I remember having minor seizures because my blood pressure had gone even higher than 150/100 during the night, and I remember being wheeled into the OR for my c-section. The rest of that day is a blur, as well as most of the next day. My first memories of after delivery are of the day after my daughter was born and I had to get up out of my bed and move from the antepartum area of Labor and Delivery into my Mother-Baby room at the hospital. I didn't have any pain killers in my system and it was the most painful thing. I hope I don't have to go through that with my next child, but at the same time, I'd go through it all again just to hold my precious baby.

Lily Grace was born at 31 weeks, 6 days. She weighed 3 pounds and measured 17 inches in length. She stayed in the NICU for 4 weeks, and came home weighing 4 pounds 4.5 ounces.

I was high risk with my first pregnancy, but that was only because I had twins. I had a hard time finding a doctor who would take me because of that. I had my twins at 33 weeks 6 days, six weeks early.

i had preterm labor and gestational diabetes with my first - went into labor at 31 weeks and they stopped it and my labor kept starting and they stopped every about once a week - was on level 3 bed rest - i delivered her at 36 weeks which made me high risk for my second pregnancy - in which i also had preterm labor starting at 25 weeks and again at 32 weeks and had UTI and high BP with the second - delivered her at 38 weeks. Girls are 6 and 4 now and fine.

I was high risk due to extremely low fluid levels. I was measuring small, so my dr had me go in for an ultrasound at 31 weeks, and my fluid level was at 3.5 cm. I was told that anything under 5 cm is dangerously low. I went into the hospital and got iv fluids, and that brought my fluid level up. Over the next 4 weeks I was in the hospital 8 times getting iv fluids. I went in for weekly ultrasounds to check my fluid levels, and hat NST twice a week. We made it to 35 weeks, and decided it was time to deliver via c-section.

Bi-corneated uterus, incompetent cervix, silent labor. One at 29 weeks, one almost at 24 weeks (she was 9 days early and I spent 10 weeks in the hospital on strict bed rest at 8 cm dilated and 90 percent effaced) and one at 33 weeks.

I was not high risk with my first, and only, pregnancy. I was perfect. At my 20wk u/s, my fluids were low, but nothing the doctor said was concerning. At 28weeks my BP was slightly elevated, and we were going to monitor it. At 30weeks, 1 day, I was admitted to the hospital, and at 30weeks 4 days, Aeva was born due to severe Pre-E, HELLP, and IUGR. I will forever be high risk now, if I attempt another pregnancy.

I have 6 children. My first was not high risk. In fact, it was a perfect pregnency until I went into labor and delivered at 34 weeks. This fact automatically put me in the high risk category with the 2nd one. That was a rough pregnency and preterm labor at 31 weeks which was stopped only to go into labor again at 32 weeks and deliver. This makes all my pregnencies high risk. With my 3rd, I went into labor at 26 weeks, which was stopped, went back into labor at 36 weeks and delivered. With my 4th, I went into labor at 33 weeks, labor stopped, back into labor and delivered at 35 weeks. My 5th son was born at 30 weeks and my last at 35 weeks.
None of the drs can seem to figure out why I deliver early other than it may be my small frame (5 foot and 80 pounds before pregnency).
Thank you for sharing your stories.

Quoting Julie:

I was high risk with my son - in july (31 & 5 days) we found out he had a congenital diaphragmatic hernia (there was a hole in his diaphragm that aloud other organs into his chest) I then became high risk and ended up delivering by c-section at 36 weeks. He was born not breathing and was imediatly intubated due to his birth defect. I had NST's from 32 weeks until the end which we had hoped would be 38 weeks but he had other plans.
