I am wondering what classifies as a high risk pregnancy.
I have PCOS, and conceived, (I am currently pregnant), with the fertility drug, Fermara.
In the past, I have had ovary cysts, an eptopic pregnancy, and a missed miscarriage that I had to take medication to release the pregnancy after the embryo died.
As a result, and a precaution, I have also requested to take Progesterone supplements to sustain the early pregnancy I am currently undergoing. I have read on multiple forums, and educational sites that women with PCOS often miscarry because their Progesterone hormone is not a regular production in the brain, which causes miscarriage if the hormone is to low.
I am just wondering if I should be classified as a high risk for miscarriage in my pregnancy this early on. I am about 6 weeks pregnant, and go for my first doctors appointment tomorrow.
(I was able to get Progesterone supplements by seeing a walk-in-doctor the day I got a positive test)
The reason I am concerned is because my Son is attending a 6 week evaluation program to be screened for developmental delays, and possible high functioning Autism. There has to be a parent present to attend the classes with them. The program runs Monday through Friday for two hours each morning.
My husband has agreed to take him, but I don't want to have to choose between going for my son, and staying to rest.
I have experienced some cramping, and light nausea and am not confident I want to be chasing after my toddler, and be distracted by every little twinge, and symptom of early pregnancy.
What would you do? Would you attend the classes, or would you prefer to stay home for the possible baby? I don't want to be dramatic, but every time I experience cramping I want to lay down till it passes.
