High risk pregnancy, what to expect?
I had a drs appointment yesterday. She discussed with me that this is a high risk pregnancy for baby with risk of preterm labor: my first was born 2 months early and had to stay in the NICU for a long time. She stated next appointment I will be meeting with a specialist to discuss injections to help baby make it to term: progesterone and steroids.
Has anyone been through this? What should I expect? I am worried for baby. Going through a PTL the first time was torture, I just want baby to be ok:(

I have to take progesterone at the start of every pregnancy to make it to term. Just try to take everything a day at a time. Is there a chance you may have an incompetent cervix? I have read that that can cause preterm births. I am wishing you a healthy and happy nine months!
