My High Risk Pregnancy… So Far!

February 19, 2018 in Giveaways, Pregnancy - No Comments

I debated talking about this subject because I didn’t want to blast my health issues out there for everyone to know but I decided to share because maybe someone else out there is going through the same thing. The reason that my pregnancy is high risk is because I have high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes.

What Previous Doctors Told Us

We were so excited to find out I was pregnant but the endocrinologist doctor that I saw for my fertility issues told me that because of my type 2 diabetes that any potential babies we have could have so many health issues. He told us we could have a mermaid baby, a baby with severe heart defects, amongst other things. Needless to say, we were nervous finding out we were pregnant because of that. At each ultrasound, I was so excited to see that baby was growing but also scared to see if he’d have any of these issues the doctor mentioned.

Getting Referred To A High Risk Pregnancy Center

Our OB referred us to a high risk pregnancy center because of my HBP and type 2 diabetes. Luckily, my HBP has been under control and since finding out I was pregnant, I’ve actually been able to stop my medication. They just want to keep monitoring it just to make sure I don’t get preeclampsia later in the pregnancy. My type 2 diabetes pre-pregnancy was controlled by diet and medication. My numbers were fine but since finding out I was pregnant, they have gone a little haywire. I’ve had to be put on insulin, which is scary but I know it’s for my health and babies health.

Is Our Baby Healthy?

Being high risk, I get to have an ultrasound once a month (a perk in my opinion!). Each ultrasound, we were so nervous but the high risk doctor said our baby boy is perfect! His heart is fine, he has legs and arms, and none of the health issues the doctor mentioned. We also decided to run a full blood work panel to see if there are any genetic conditions and that all came back wonderful!

I know it’s scary being labeled “high risk” but I feel like so far I’ve had a pretty by-the-book pregnancy. I’m always open to talk if anyone wants to discuss their pregnancy! You can DM me on Instagram.

  • It’s crazy how far he’s come. I was in labor for over 50 hours when his heart rate went up and I was rushed into an emergency c-section. He was taken to the NICU and I was confined to my bed. I couldn’t get up and hold him for over 36 hours. He had a hard time gaining weight. We had to go for weight checks and now he’s a 24.10lb baby boy. I’ve been looking at pictures and videos from when he was born lately. Can’t believe he will be 1 in less than 3 months. 😩
