Tests throughout pregnancy

Hey ladies, I went to the Dr today and am 6 weeks. I’m considered a high risk pregnancy and even if you aren’t, I’m curious what are some tests and stuff they do throughout your pregnancy? I know there’s like a glucose test but I’m just curious what’s coming in this new chapter of life! Thank you in advance ladies ☺️

I had a high risk pregnancy with our twins (I think all multiple pregnancies are considered high risk). I got ultrasounds every two weeks instead of the usual four, had extra blood and urine tests, and saw a high risk OBGYN. I ended up getting a c-section at 34 weeks due to pre-eclampsia and anemia, but was scheduled at 37 weeks. I hope that helps!

Also high risk and 34 weeks. I had to get an ultrasound at 8, 14, 20, 28, (and will get another at 36 weeks), and started going in every week for a non-stress test at 28 weeks where I just sit at the doctor office for an hour and they monitor the baby’s heart rate. Luckily have not had any issues 🤞

I was a high risk pregnancy due to having uterine didelphys - I have two uteruses and two cervix...I had extra growth scans from 28 weeks so doctor could monitor my daughter's growth. She was severe IUGR. Born at under the 1st percentile but is catching up with her weight now. I had the initial NT blood tests and scans at 12 weeks, anatomy scan at 20 weeks the glucose tolerance test and then the growth scans at 28, 30, 32, 33, 34 and 35 weeks. I was induced at 36 weeks because of the IUGR. I was also on progesterone all through my pregnancy and was being monitored for threatened incompetent cervix

I was born with only one kidney. I found out when I was 25 for an unrelated issue. I had as laparoscopy and hysteroscopy after finding the two uteruses so the doctor could see the extent of the abnormalities. That's when we found out I had two cervix. After the surgery I was originally told that we were at higher risk for miscarriage and also preterm delivery. It is all really dependant on the person really. My daughter measured smaller from the anatomy scan - at the 12 week scan she was on track, by 19 weeks the growth was one week behind. At 28 weeks we had dropped to two weeks behind and in the 4th percentile. From 28 weeks to 35 weeks, the growth slowed down to less than the first percentile. At the 30 week scan, the tech saw that her feet were turning in - bilateral talipes or clubfoot was the diagnosis. At that point we weren't sure if it was positional or structual but my OB was confident that it was positional because she had less space to grow (he was right)

Oh my gosh, I have Uterus Didelphys too lol I’ve never talked or met with anyone who had that. Were you also born with 1 kidney? I’d really love to talk more about this from someone who is similar.
