Hi Pumpkinseed, so sorry for your loss.
I had a MC at 7 weeks, and then another around 5 weeks, which could have been classified as a chemical. Either way, now with my third pregnancy I am considered "high risk". I think you need to have more than 1 pregnancy loss to be high risk? Not entirely sure and I don't want to say the wrong thing, but in my opinion, being extra cautious and careful, i.e not flying, no strenuous exercise, etc can't harm in your next pregnancy, whether you are considered high risk or not

I hope you are okay xxx

Technically being over 35 like I am puts you at higher risk but I'm not sure the criteria for actually being a high risk patient

I'm sorry about your miscarriage pumpkin. I'm not sure whether one miscarriage makes you high risk or not though. I'm considered high risk because I have a blood clotting disorder (factor 5 Leiden) and a bicornuate uterus. I've also had one miscarriage.

Hi pumpkinseed. I am very sorry for your loss. I believe they consider "high risk" to be 3 or more miscarriages, among other things such as diabetes, multiples, etc. However, you may be considered "at risk". I thought I was automatically considered high risk because of my age but my dr. explained there is a difference between at risk and high risk.

Edit: I see you got a BFP, congrats!

I'm high risk for different reasons
I have a spinal cord injury which is obviously made worse by being pregnant so I still have to take some pain meds that wouldn't normally be used

I also conceived following a dose of radiotherapy so there were concerns over birth defects

The major worry is the birth in that I'll be unable to have an epidural so if I need a c section I will have to have a general

There's lots of reasons for being high risk but it just means you get monitored a lot closer but it's important to try and relax and just deal with each day at a time
