Warning Signs

Certain problems may appear during any stage of pregnancy. Therefore, it is important to know how to reach your health care provider if warning signs appear during any time of day or night. Contact your health care provider immediately if any of the following warning signs occur:

  • Severe abdominal pain or cramping, which could indicate preterm labor or ectopic pregnancy
  • Frequent uterine contractions from 20-36 weeks, which could indicate preterm labor
  • Vaginal bleeding, which could indicate preterm labor or ectopic pregnancy
  • Steady leaking of watery fluid from vagina, which could indicate ruptured membranes (water breaking) or preterm labor
  • Absence of or decrease in fetal movements after 20 weeks, which could indicate fetal distress
  • Severe headaches and vision problems, which could indicate dangerously elevated blood pressure
  • Persistent vomiting, which could lead to dehydration and starvation
  • Chills or fever, which could indicate infection

Mild cramps or achiness is normal during pregnancy, and is usually caused by normal stretching of the ligaments. However, it is always a good idea to mention any mild signs and symptoms to your health care provider during prenatal visits.
