If a pregnant woman sees heavy bleeding, it can be worrisome. Heavy bleeding during pregnancy isn't normal, so it's important to get help right away. Go to a doctor or hospital to find out what's going on. They will check to see why there's bleeding and make sure both the mom and the baby are okay. This pregnancy complication should not be ignored.
Your body goes through a huge number of physical and mental changes during pregnancy. Being tired or feeling dizzy is quite common. But if your vision gets blurry often and if this is combined with other symptoms such as abdominal pain and headaches, it could be a sign of preeclampsia. So, do visit your doctor and explain your condition.
Pregnancy is a time when your immunity might be lower than usual and you will be more prone to fevers and body aches. If your fever persists for over 24 hours, do see your doctor as simple viral fevers could become severe during pregnancy.
As the skin at your belly region stretches, it will start feeling itchy. Even the pregnancy hormones go rogue sometimes causing itchiness and rashes all over the body. Though in most cases it is not dangerous, if the redness & itchiness persists despite moisturizers, it is better that you see your doctor. In extremely rare cases it could be an indication of a liver disorder that can lead to pre-term labour.
Rapid Weight Gain
It is a fact that the baby gains the maximum weight only in the last trimester and that is the time you will see the maximum weight gain in yourself. If you find that you are gaining more weight than what is advised by the doctor, it could be a sign of preeclampsia.
Swollen Face, Hands & Feet
It is common to have water retention during pregnancy and this causes puffiness or swelling. But any sudden puffiness especially in the face could again be a sign of preeclampsia. If you feel that you are puffier than normal, visit the doctor to rule out any complications.
Severe Abdominal Pain
While aches and pains are a part of even healthy pregnancies, severe abdominal pain is something to be worried off. It could be a sign of ectopic pregnancy or miscarriage.
Burning Sensation While Peeing
Pain or burning sensation during peeing and unexpected high fevers are all possible symptoms of Urinary Tract Infections. UTIs during pregnancy can be dangerous for the baby.
