Special Care Pregnancies

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Most pregnancies are uncomplicated, but there are some conditions that can threaten you and your baby's well-being.

Knowing when to call your health care provider can ensure prompt treatment for any problem that might arise. Early signs of complications may be:

  • Bleeding from the vagina, rectum, nipple or lungs (coughing blood)
  • Sudden, large weight gain
  • Sudden increase in swelling of the legs, hands or face
  • Severe headaches
  • Persistent dimness, blurred vision, flashes of light or spots before your eyes
  • Sharp and prolonged pain in your abdomen
  • Severe or continued vomiting
  • High fever (above 100.4 degrees F) with chills
  • Painful urination
  • Sudden escape of fluid from the vagina
  • Stopping or slowing of fetal movement​

If you notice any of these signs, do not wait for your next checkup. Contact your health care provider immediately so the problem can be assessed.
