High Risk

So, we were labeled a high risk pregnancy a little over a week ago... and we had an appointment today to find out why. Well, apparently on top of being RH Negative, I also have Factor V Leiden. So, you ask what does that mean? Here is what I was told...

"It is thought that Factor V Leiden increases the risk for recurrent fetal loss and has been associated with severe pre-eclampsia, unexplained intrauterine growth retardation, placental abruption, and stillbirth as well as maternal clotting during labor and in the postpartum period"

Good Lord! I hope that this baby will be okay.
