High Risk Doctor Cycle?

Is anyone out there high risk? I'm wondering how often you have to go to the doctor? Has there been any hospitalizations? I have been in twice, for a week each time. I am wondering if this is normal or I'm just having a horrible pregnancy. Those two times don't even count the er visits cause of pain and dehydration. Husband is keeping the hospital bracelets to show the baby :P I just feel so BLEH all the time..

  • I had that with my pregnancys. I had seen 2 doctors a week at the end. I I will always be concidered high risk. With my son i was on bed rest the whole pregnancy. I was hospitlized alot with him. I had to find things to do for the time to go by. I had lots of help when i got pregnant with my daughter. I felt like my problems would never end. I know how you feel. Im not pregnant right now and i dont want to get pregnant for a long time..... But I hope this helps you. Keep your head up high.

  • It depends on why you are considering yourself "high risk." With baby #2, i had an ultrasound every month until 24 weeks, then every 2 weeks after that. With baby #3, I saw the perinatologist every other week for weeks 12 through 24. With this pregnancy, I only have to go once to the perinatologist if all goes well. It varies depending on what your issues are and what your OB is comfortable treating themselves.

  • I'm not considering my self.. the doctors are. I have asthma sever, lymphademia, POTS (Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome) have had two miscarriages unknown cause. I am also diabetic and have preeclampsia , and over weight. But between the shuffle of heart doctors to lung doctors to sleep studies and more I am going batty. I swear if I can get my self fixed after this I so am going for that option.

  • Im seeing a specialist just because im 41years old so they consider that high risk
