Re: High Risk Check-in 3/16

  • I was thinking of starting this one so thanks @jackie_dunny

    How far along are you? 6+4

    Why are you high risk? I have lupus but also mainly because I had a large blood clot in my left leg shortly after I gave birth last time. My doctor wants to put me on blood thinners this go-round and then take me off blood thinners RIGHT before the c-section. Makes me a little nervous but I trust her. I also have a SCH - not sure if that is considered high risk. Probably not as long as it goes away within the first tri if I had to guess. 

    Any additional monitoring or testing this week? I had an ultrasound on Monday and go back next Tuesday.

    Any concerns/news currently? I am just anxiously waiting for my next appointment so I can see and hopefully hear the heartbeat again. I just want to be done with first tri so I can stop worrying. 

    How are you coping being high risk? Good so far.

    Any questions? Where are all the other high risk mamas? I know I can't be the one one. :)

  • How far along are you? 5w5d 

    Why are you high risk? Age, history of PE and on Lovenox all pregnancy, recurrent pregnancy loss

    Any additional monitoring or testing this week? Just had an US today (yay!) and another one next Thursday 

    Any concerns/news currently? First US was good. Got my meds refilled on time. Next appointment is next Thursday. 

    How are you coping being high risk? Early US are such a anxiety provoking experience! I’m with you @teamginger13 about not being able to wait for the first tri to be over. I wish I could have the experience of women who never had to work this hard to become and get to enjoy seeing a little peanut on the screen. 

    Any questions? None right now

  • How far along are you? 7weeks

    Why are you high risk? My 1st pregnancy history. At 7w I had to a surgery to remove a huge ovarian cyst and was put on supplementary hormones. Those cause me to throw do hard while also making me terribly hungry to the extent that I would cry out of hunger right after 3 baguettes! I also contracted kidney stones (suspecting my meds) which caused me to be hospitalized for the 2nd time. Two weeks after it was preeclampsia. I shot up 20+ kilograms in a span of 10 days. C-section and ended up in the icu for 3 days. Now that I have a child to take care of, I don’t want even a single pattern to repeat. Health care is awful if you’re not pregnant in my country!! I got so less care postpartum. 

    Any additional monitoring or testing this week? My 1st appointment is next Friday

    Any concerns/news currently? We have been riding a flu and I have been running a temp, worried to what extent it can affect the pregnancy

    How are you coping being high risk? I haven’t thought about it yet. My usually reaction to stress is to ball up and not communicate with others. I’m trying hard to break the pattern

    Any questions? Any preeclamptic mommies went on to have smooth pregnancies later on? Any advice for managing kidney stones?
