Am I a high risk pregnancy at 38 with previous miscarriage?
The answer to this is yes and you will be looked after with more care than a woman half your age with no previous history of any miscarriages. You would of been looked after with greater attention being 38 but also having previous miscarriage makes you even more a priority. Please do not worry as people still have successful pregnancies at your age with miscarriages.

It is important that, if you are pregnant and have high blood pressure you discuss it with your family physician. High blood pressure in pregnancy may be pre-existing (the… woman already had it before conception) or it may be brought on by pregnancy. The latter is called pregnancy-induced (or gestational) hypertension. Either way, it must be monitored and well controlled because otherwise is can pose risks for both the mother and the baby. High blood pressure developing after the 20th week of pregnancy might be a sign that pre-eclampsia is developing. This condition needs to be monitored closely as rarely it can develop into life-threatening eclampsia. Pre-existing high blood pressure should be controlled but the choice of drug is important to ensure it is safe for the developing baby.
Answer . \nA high-risk pregnancy is anything that increases the chances of the baby and mother not remaining healthy.\n. \nThis may be because the mother already has a pro…blem before pregnancy, diabetes, kidney disease and hypertension being the most common.\n. \nThere may be something else about the mother, older (although as this becomes more common it is regarded as less of a risk), very young (under 16 and not yet fully grown herself), petite, (especially if the father is big) and obese.\n. \nThere may be something about the pregnancy itself, placenta praevia, pre-eclampsia.\n. \nThis is not an exhaustive list but gives you an idea.. Answer . meaning if there are potential problems with your pregnancy, different circumstances for every pregnancy, that doesn't always mean whatever their concern is will actually happen
Answer . \nThere is a slightly greater risk than normal. Nothing too bad, but a small one.\n. \nIf you are early in your pregnancy, you can get a doctor to remove it.
A pregnancy after a miscarriage is still possible. As long as the embro or fetus has been complete removed from the uterus. I am one of the many enjoying a pregnancy after fee…ling the hard grief of a miscarriage.

20-25% of pregnancies end in miscarriage, but having one miscarriage does not put you at any greater risk of having another. Good luck
Hi If your gynecologist says that there is a risk of miscarriage it normally means that they could not find a viable pregnancy....don't worry though in some cases when they… say this it means they don't really have enough info to say that the pregnancy is viable. I went through the same thing but unfortunately i miscarried after 2 weeks. When i spoke to the doc they said they have to find a heartbeat to determinate viability if not that then they should at least be able to see if the baby is the right size for how many weeks you are. If they don't find both these things they refer it as not viable but should call you bac after 10 days for further testing to make sure.
Yes the risk is higher and there are other factors. Babies are smaller when they are born to smoking mothers and the embryonic fluid turns a shade of red. To protect the devel…opment of your baby please do not smoke.
A pre-pregnancy visit with a healthcare provider is especially important for a woman who has a medical problem. The doctor will discuss how women with this condition usually f…are during pregnancy. For some diseases.
A woman with a high-risk pregnancy will need closer monitoring than the average pregnant woman. Such monitoring may include more frequent visits with the primary caregiver, te…sts to monitor the medical problem, blood tests.
Factors can be divided into maternal and fetal. Maternal factors include age (younger than age 15, older than age 35); weight (pre-pregnancy weight under 100 lb or obesity); h…eight (under five feet); history of complications.
The prognosis depends in large part on the specific medical condition. Some medical conditions make it difficult to get pregnant and lead to a higher risk of problems in the b…aby. An example of this type of condition is thyroid disease.
Treatment varies widely with the type of disease, the effect that pregnancy has on the disease, and the effect that the disease has on pregnancy. Additional tests may help det…ermine the need for changes in medication or additional treatment.
That depends on your situation and is up to you, with your doctor to decide.
A high risk pregnancy can result in health problems for the newborn or the mother. It may result in a premature birth, or the loss of the child either due to miscarriage or st…illbirth. There may also be a normal birth with no complications. The term "high-risk" refers to factors which increase the likelihood of health complications, but in no way does this mean something will go wrong. For a detailed answer refer to a qualified healthcare practitioner.
