    Hello Beautiful Girl,

    I have decided to create this sanctuary for those who are pregnant but have a high risk pregnancy.

    For those of us who are perhaps bleeding, on complete bedrest or the prognosis for their pregnancy is not looking positive.

    :hug:

    Many women in this position feel that they do not belong in 1st/2nd/3rd tri as they cannot be open with their symptoms and worries for fear of causing extra distress and upset to the girls in that forum in what should be a happy and exciting time, nor do they feel comfortable in the Loss & Miscarrige forum because these babies are not lost, they may be very poorly or even turn out to be just fine but its incredibly hurtful to have them classed as 'lost' when as far as its known they are alive and growing.

    This group can be a middle ground, where you can be totally honest about your condition, and to meet women in the same position so that we can support one another :hugs:

    This is a lovely idea littlebuddha
    I was in limbo with my pregnancy & a group like this would have helped me a great deal.

    Glad to see you found a place for this after all. I'm pregnant and high risk due to pcos, asthma, and a heart condition. In addition to the pregnancy symptoms I've experienced so far (sore breasts, hot flashes, mood swings, food cravings, constant nearly painless cramping) I have now added bleeding to the list. I was diagnosed with threatened miscarriage. I'm scared to death right now.

    Hi there

    I am so sorry to hear you are going through such worrying time, I also have had a threatned miscarriage but my baby is still there today at 11 weeks. I also have PCOS as well as hypothyroidism and a subchoirionic hematoma in my uterus oh yeah, and a low lying placenta but bubs and I are still OK.

    Lots of positive mental attitude your way honey, I am sure the baby is just fine but you are going through hell of worry now understandably

    :friends: big hugs xx

    Hello ladies , I'm joining you but i think i should be " medium " risk , Although splashed across my notes says " HIGH " :dohh:

    I've only had the one baby so far (preg with no2) but i struggled to carry him & when i got to 29wks i was in hosp with bleeding & prem labour, Steroid injections & some bed rest helped but spd swiftly followed & being told my baby would be around 5lb i was prepared for the fact he would be in NICU , he was born a wk early by inducement & amazing he was 7lb 4oz!! This preg did not go without other ups & downs either.

    Now preg with a 2nd, spd keeps teasing me but not made a full blown appearance yet , i've had slight bleeding, been told i have very weak stomach muscles so when i get bigger its poss i may need either complete bed rest or be hospitalised for the remainder of the preg depending how i go & how baby is. I also have an exisiting thyroid condition which is never quite simple anyway & just gets worse during preg so the babies growth is checked quite a bit & so far i'm 15 wks & baby is active but measuring 13wks :(

    My next scan is in 5wks (20wk scan) so hoping to see a good growth spurt has happened, then i get another scan around 28wks & again depending on the results will be what happens after that. So although may not sound as serious as some of you ladies there is still the chance i could go in prem labour or have a tiny baby which is enough for me to feel i should join you.

    Hope you don't mind my long winded intro & hugs to all you ladies who are high risk & or lost due to previous high risk. :hug:

    Sub group is fine by me , kinda takes the heat off a little eh?
    I had endless problems with my 1st & labour wasn't a push over either, they had to resus him as he wasn't getting oxygen but he was fine within minutes & has been fine ever since.
    I guess we all have ups & downs i just hope this 2nd preg is more an up than a downer .xx

    LOL yeah was just jokking - so funny though!

    on the other note though, sounds like a really stressful labour, bless him, he did well your little fella.

    I am sure this time it will be better, they say the first pregnancy is always tougher

    I'm high risk, i had post preeclampsia and post partum cardiomyopathy with my first pregnancy and had an emergency c-section, recovered from post partum cardiomyopathy and had a second pregnancy 3 years later, no probs but v stressful delivered at 37 weeks via c-section under GA.

    Now 13 weeks pregnant, unplanned and scared to death, to top it all off just been told I have a subamniotic haematoma which is a blood clot in the baby's side of the placenta - feel like a time bomb, anxiety levels astranomical.
