General Hospital spoilers ask what is wrong with Carly Corinthos’ baby? Laura Wright is playing the scenes to a tee as Carly and Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) get upsetting news about their baby. Carly’s pregnancy is high risk due to her age along with her past complications. Certainly, the first test came back negative, showing no signs of any risk.
However, the doctor wanted to do a more complex test to rule out any other problems. So, the latest test came back positive showing a concerning level of the AFP protein. So, this means there is a chance the baby will have a birth defect or other condition. No doubt, Carly is beside herself as she fears for her unborn child’s health on ABC’s GH.
Update: Carly and Sonny’s child has spina bifida – read more on this development.
General Hospital Spoilers: Carly Corinthos High-Risk Pregnancy
GH spoilers recall Carly Corinthos has a history of difficult pregnancies and births. Remember, all three of her past pregnancies were high-risk. She miscarried during her first pregnancy with Sonny Corinthos. Then, she suffered severe postpartum with Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell). Also, she was told she wouldn’t be able to get pregnant again after Josslyn Jacks (Eden McCoy).
Certainly, this baby is a miracle. But, it doesn’t come without some scary risks. Besides that, Carly’s age makes her high-risk. Fans wonder with this pregnancy, how old is Carly on General Hospital? The character is supposedly 45, born in November of 1973. Laura Wright, the actress that plays the ole is 48. And for those that want to know “is Carly really pregnant” as in, is the actress pregnant – the answer is no – as she keeps reiterating on social media. No, Laura Wright is not pregnant.
Sonny and Carly never imagined they'd be expecting another child. And he or she will be here before they know it.

What Pre-Natal Test Did Carly Have on GH That Showed Risk?
General Hospital spoilers remind that Carly Corinthos’ OB/GYN suggested she undergo another procedure called an AFP test. This test measures a specific protein. It is run in some pregnant women in their second trimester. The Alpha-fetoprotein test looks for a protein made in the growing baby’s liver. During fetal development, some of this AFP goes into the mom’s blood through the baby’s placenta. So, that’s how they can measure it.
Too little or too much AFP in a mother’s blood can be a warning sign of a birth defect or other condition. It can indicate a neural tube defect like spina bifida or anencephaly. It could also mean a risk for Down syndrome or a multiple pregnacy. However, sometimes with a reading that is “off” in an AFP test can simply mean the due date was miscalculated. So, Carly’s doc urges her not to panic because it could be nothing. Of course, Carly won’t listen and is now in a panic, say GH spoilers.
Carly's confident it's nothing, but Jason isn't letting her take any chances after a few sharp pains interrupt their day.
