I agree with Aghadowey  with my last pregnancy  I had a couple  of prior admissions  for high blood  pressure  seems a more likely  reason for wording

I need to see the original document myself to work out what my father is on about. He explained it as being a document that pertained to me - but I might have misunderstood. Whatever he is looking at, he clearly seems to think there was a possibility of another child. That being said - he's not very analytical, so it wouldn't have occurred to him to investigate further (nor would he have pressed the matter with my mother). If he asked and she said no, that would have been the end of it. I, on the other hand, want to know either way.

I'm particularly curious because I have failed to have a DNA match with his cousin, so one of us is clearly not related in a fashion in which we think - so that coupled with this information has made me consider the possibility that he might not be my biological father either. It's all a bit of a mystery.

If this document relates to your own birth - i wonder if anywhere on it it says "gravida 1"? That would refer to a previous birth. If on the other hand it says primigravida, that means a first pregnancy

I've asked my father to dig out the document. Hopefully it won't take him too long.

Interesting thought Lisa.  I've never yet seen any birth certificate that indicates what number pregnancy the child was. 

There is certainly nothing on my birth certificate that indicates that I was the result of a third pregnancy.  Neither of my children's birth certificates give that information.

To put it a little better - when i was pregnant with my son, my first child I was a primigravida. A couple of years later, when my daughter came along, i was gravida 1, and so on.

I think OP is talking about a medical record not a birth certificate

I am not referring to a birth cert.

Number of oregnancies would be referred to on a medical record.

Oh yes, ok that would make sense.  Not sure how easy it would be to see medical records especially if you are not the patient.
