Pregnancy Signs You Shouldn’t Ignore

If you’re worried that you might not be feeling “normal” during your pregnancy, that isn’t surprising, especially for your first pregnancy! Here are some signs that you should be concerned about:

  • A temperature above 38°C with no cold or flu symptoms
  • Sudden swelling or puffiness of your hands, face or eyes.
  • Severe & unusual headache that lasts for more than two hours
  • Blood or fluid draining from vagina
  • A sudden increase in thirst alongside dark yellow urine
  • Urinating a lot more than usual or painful or burning urine (especially if accompanied by a temperature, shivering & backache)
  • Persistent vomiting
  • Fainting or dizziness
  • Sharp abdominal pain
  • You feel an absence or decrease in your baby’s movements after 24 weeks
  • Jaundice (yellow skin)
  • You’ve had a fall or a blow to the stomach
  • Thoughts of hurting yourself
  • Or… you just don’t feel right for a long period of time!

If you have any of these problems, call your midwife, GP or obstetrician straight away OR – go to the Emergency Room!
