Swelling of the hands, face, and eyes in late pregnancy is not a concern, but if you have severe swelling or a sudden onset with headaches or vision problems, you may have seizures. If you notice any of these symptoms, talk to your doctor right away. Call yourself.

Severe headache that does not go away

If severe headaches last for more than two or three hours and your body develops severe visual disturbances and swelling, you may develop preeclampsia. Preeclampsia usually occurs in the second half of pregnancy or after the baby is born.

What causes vaginal bleeding and spotting in pregnancy?

Easy spotting or bleeding is very common in early pregnancy and usually goes away on its own, and is unlikely to harm your baby. However, if you have bleeding at any stage of pregnancy, always consult your doctor or midwife.

Spotting may indicate a serious complication: Bleeding different from the standard menstrual period, lighter or darker in color than usual, with severe, persistent, and unilateral pain in the abdomen, which is a sign of an ectopic pregnancy.

Severe bleeding with low back pain or abdominal pain may be a sign of miscarriage.

Fresh or dark bleeding or no clots during pregnancy can mean a placental fracture, which is when the placenta begins to separate from your uterine wall and, depending on the location and extent of the separation, can cause bleeding or high blood pressure.

Heavy bleeding may mean you are planning to give birth prematurely, and if you are less than 37 weeks pregnant, heavy bleeding is sudden in the later stages of pregnancy. Hands and feet are swollen.

 Swelling of the hands, face, and eyes in late pregnancy is not a concern, but if you have severe swelling or a sudden onset with headaches or vision problems, you may have seizures. If you notice any of these symptoms, talk to your doctor right away.

Severe discharge of fluid from the vagina

If fluid comes out of the vagina before 37 weeks, it means that your bladder has ruptured sooner. Contact your maternity ward so your doctor or midwife can examine your baby for an infection. It would help if you had treatment. When your bladder ruptures, your baby has less protection against disease. You may need to prepare for preterm labor, and to ensure the health of yourself and your baby; you will need a specialist team to examine you at the hospital.

When your bladder ruptures after 37 weeks, you will probably give birth the next day or later. Contact your midwife or maternity ward and tell them what happened. They will probably ask you to go to the hospital. Check, and if you do not give birth within 24 hours, it is better to do so.

I am suddenly and very thirsty.

If you suddenly become very thirsty and your urine is dark yellow, this could sign dehydration. You should drink more fluids during pregnancy, and if you are too arid, it can be a sign of gestational diabetes. Gestational diabetes can increase the risk of complications for you and your baby, so tell your doctor or midwife.

I feel burning when urinating.

You may have a urinary tract infection that you feel pain or burning.

  • Bloody or foul-smelling urine.
  • Have nausea, fatigue, and cold sweats.
  • You have pain all over your body. If you have any of these symptoms, see your doctor because antibiotics can help treat you.

Persistent vomiting with diarrhea and fever:

Vomiting more than a few times a day can kill you or weaken your body, although it is unlikely to harm your baby. You should talk to your midwife or GP about frequent vomiting, especially if you can not tolerate any food or drink and may need hospital treatment. If you vomit in the second half of pregnancy, you may have severe pain under the ribs and sudden swelling of the face, arms, or legs. These symptoms may be a sign of preeclampsia.

Vomiting with diarrhea can be a sign of food poisoning or dysentery. If you have vomiting, fever, and pain in or around the genitals, it means that if you have these symptoms, you have a kidney infection, and you should contact your doctor.

Feeling weak and dizzy.

Feeling dizzy may be a sign that you have not eaten enough that day. Still, it does mean you have low blood pressure, which is expected early in pregnancy, so progesterone, the pregnancy hormone, relaxes the walls of your arteries. Many women experience dizziness during pregnancy, but if you feel suffocated, you should see a doctor make sure everything is fine.

Decreased fetal motility

If you notice that your baby is moving less than usual, contact your midwife or hospital, and if you are over 28 weeks old, do so immediately.

Vaginal itching

If you have vaginal itching, especially at night, you may have a premature birth or jaundice that makes your urine darker and more petite than usual. If you have a mild itch, try not to worry too much because some itching is expected, so as your baby grows, your skin will stretch. But it is best to check for severe itching, mainly if itching occurs at night.

Falling and hitting the abdomen

The other pain during pregnancy is that it is not always dangerous to fall or be hit, but call your doctor or midwife the same day to explain what happened. But do not worry because your baby is in the womb and your amniotic fluid surrounds the fetus, but the effects of a blow to your abdomen can still damage your bones, tendons, or ligaments. If you notice contractions and bleeding, consult your doctor or midwife immediately or go to the nearest emergency department.

Weakness in feeling

If you are unsure about a symptom and do not understand your feelings or anxiety, call your doctor or midwife if there is a problem. Your body changes so fast that sometimes it is difficult to tell if it is ordinary or worrying.
