Re: HighRisk Mama Weekly check in 5/1-5/7

Great idea! Having a high risk pregnancy is hard. We want to sit back and enjoy being pregnant, like everyone else, but it seems like there's just so much to worry about! I haven't posted in the DDC much, but I have been reading occasionally.

Name: Dawn
What makes you high risk: My first was born at 32 weeks due to pPROM
How many children do you have: 2 - DS was my 32 weeker and spent 5 weeks in the NICU after birth. He's 4 years old now. DD was full term at 38.5 weeks. She's turning 2 this month.
Anything else you'd like to share: With my last pregnancy, I was monitored closely by MFM (cervical ultrasounds every two weeks), and did the 17p shots from weeks 18-36. My dd was born full term, so I'm going to do the same thing for this pregnancy and hope it works again. The one scary thing is that both my labors began with PROM. Contractions did not start until AFTER my water broke. Like the rest of you, I won't be able to breathe a sigh of relief until I have my babe in my arms!
Dawn: Mama to DS1 (12/2007), DD1 (5/2010), DS2 (10/2012) and DD2 (2/2015)
