35 and twins

I will be 35 next month. I just found out I'm having twins. Will this make me considered high risk??? Thank you.

I was told that women over 35 are considered high risk regardless. But Check with your OBGY

35 and over puts us in a different category as we are monitored more closely. Since you are carrying multiples they will monitor even closer. CONGRATS!! So exciting :)

Yes both the twins and age put you in high risk category. I turned 35 six days before my due date and that put me in high risk category because they go by age of mother at birth of child. Being pregnant with multiples is considered high risk regardless of age. Congratulations and all the best!

I am 38 and in my 23rd week carrying twins. Yes your doctor will want to keep a closer eye on you and the twins. I see my OB every week cause i also miscarried December 2015. You're doctor will do what is best for you and your twins. Good luck!

I just turned 37 yesterday and I'm currently 22 weeks pregnant with twins.  I've had 3 miscarriages between my 13 year old son and my current pregnancy, so I'm a triple high risk pregnancy.
