Pregnancy symptoms: How do you know that something is wrong


Most of the physical symptoms that women experience during pregnancy are normal, even if they are not comfortable. It is only the result of pregnancy.

But it can be easy to worry and wonder if everything is OK and how do you know if something is wrong. Although true complications are rare, it is best if you know what to watch.

Here are some signs that could indicate a problem:

  • Vaginal bleeding or spotting
  • Premature rupture of membranes (also known as "overflow"); It can appear as a liquid drip, static leak, or flush. Rupture of the membranes is considered premature if it occurs before the 37th week of pregnancy.
  • Persistent abdominal pain or premature uterine contractions can be preterm labor
  • The change in or immobilisation of the fetus (kicking or spinning by the baby) for more than 24 hours after the twentieth week of pregnancy
  • Severe headache that lasts more than two or three hours
  • Visual disturbances, such as blurred vision or double vision
  • Fainting or dizziness (feeling lightheaded can also be a normal symptom in early pregnancy)
  • Weight gain of more than two pounds per week (without having to do with overeating!)
  • Intense pain above the stomach, below the rib cage
  • Swelling or puffiness (edema) in the face, eyes, or hands. Swelling of the feet or hands is normal during pregnancy, but it should be followed up.
  • Vomiting that lasts over several days and occurs more than two or three times a day, especially after the first trimester of pregnancy, which is the time when "morning sickness" is supposed to go away.
  • Signs of infection (fever, chills, burning during urination, or diarrhea)

If you experience any of these symptoms, contact your health care provider immediately. This way, there is no need to worry and if a problem arises, it can be dealt with immediately.
