high risk pregnancy
I'm 26 years old and almost six weeks pregnant with my first baby. I have always been very overweight, and have tried everything to lose the extra pounds. I have been very dedicated, especially when I knew I wanted to conceive, to losing weight but no matter how hard I try, absolutely nothing works.
I am 26 years old and obese. I have been working hard to get to a healthier weight before my husband and I start trying to conceive. I have lost 15 pounds so far but the holidays have slowed my progress. I haven't gained any back, but I haven't lost any in over a month now. I am sticking with my work out routine and back on track with my eating habits.

Did you know that nearly seven babies will die before their first birthday for every thousand who are born in the U.S.? In recognition of September as the National Infant Mortality Awareness Month, I'd like to share some SMART tips to pregnant women:
This is going to be more complicated then I thought. Already I am running into difficulties to just getting my records sent to the right office.
Well, now that my OB/GYN has my records, I called my doctor's nurse and spoke to her about being pregnant again and asking about where we should go from here.
I went in today and got my blood drawn. They called me with the results. My HCG is fine but my progesterone is low.
I am thinking about getting pregnant, but my last two pregnancies have been very complicated. My first daughter came at 26 weeks and had to stay in the NICU for 4 months following her birth. She weighed 1 pound 13 ounces.
I went into the doctor's office today to get another blood draw. I asked the tech if the tests would be rushed like last time since my nurse never mentioned it to me.
