While every pregnancy is unique, there are a lot of common things that you’ll experience. It’s important to know your body and to be aware when things are new, severe, and persistent.
Bleeding — Anything more than spotting warrants a call to your health care provider.
Vision, Weight, Skin — Blurry vision, rapid weight gain or itchy skin can all be signs of something serious.
Water Breaking — If your water breaks, it’s always a good idea to give your provider a call. It’s especially important if this happens before 37 weeks, has a dark green color or foul odor.
Abdominal or Back Pain — Mild discomfort can be normal, but severe and persistent pain may not be.
Fever — It’s common to have times when you feel hot or cold, but if a fever lasts longer than 24-36 hours call your provider.
