When should you call the doctor during early pregnancy?

Whether you are pregnant for the first time or the fifth time, you will experience a lot of new changes to your body, some of which you may not have experienced during your previous pregnancies. While many of those changes are normal, some symptoms may indicate a bigger problem. For example, while a little bleeding, vaginal discharge and nausea are not abnormal, they could mean something is amiss. When you experience atypical symptoms, you may wonder, should you call your New York OB/GYN? Probably. 

According to WebMD, one sign you should never ignore is vaginal bleeding. Though your OB may tell you that a little spotting is perfectly normal, if you experience bleeding that goes beyond "spotting"—especially if it is heavy, call your doctor, as the bleeding could be a sign of ectopic pregnancy or miscarriage. The brighter red the bleeding is, the more concerned you should be. If you experience period-like cramps along with the bleeding, it may be a sign of an impending miscarriage. If you experience sharp, lower abdominal pain, you may have an ectopic pregnancy, which could be life-threatening if not treated.

While it is normal to experience both nausea and vomiting in your first trimesters, if the vomiting becomes so severe that you become dehydrated, call your doctor. The doctor may choose to have you hospitalized or to put you on a medication that controls your vomiting.

If you have a high fever that is greater than 101 degrees Fahrenheit, contact your doctor. Though fevers can be indicative of many non-serious conditions, during pregnancy, they could be a symptom of an infection that can affect the baby.

Vaginal discharge and itching, though normal during pregnancy, could be a sign of a sexually transmitted disease. It is important to rule out an STD, as many STDs can cause pregnancy complications, pre-term labor and pre-term birth. Some can also adversely affect the health of the fetus.

If you experience swelling on one side of your body, leg or calf pain or severe headaches, you may have a blood clot. Contact your doctor immediately, as if a clot reaches the lungs, it could be fatal.

Finally, if you notice any flareups of chronic disease such as diabetes, high blood pressure, thyroid disease or asthma, contact your physician. An underlying disease that is not well controlled can have serious consequences on your health and the health of the baby.
