If you want to have a safe pregnancy by curtailing all sorts of complications, then you have to promptly respond to warning bells. There are certain warning symptoms that should not be neglected at all as that might put your pregnancy in danger. 


This kind of situation cannot be ignored as that often leads to serious issues like placental abruption or miscarriage. In this case, you are definitely in need of the assistance of an expert midwife.

Swollen face or hands-

Slightly swollen face or hands in pregnancy are normal, but if you observe excessive puffiness, especially on your feet and ankles, then it is a warning sign as it might lead to toxemia or PIH. Therefore, consulting a doctor is very much needed in this regard.

Abdominal pain-

Round-ligament pain is quite normal, and you do not have to worry about the same. But if the pain is accompanied by bleeding, then the danger of miscarriage might come into being, and thus you should be very much alert about the same.

Blurry vision-

Both blurry vision and dizziness are the commonest pregnancy symptoms. But if they get increased suddenly, visit your doctor. 


Itching is common during pregnancy mostly due to stretching of the skin. Your skin also becomes dry. But if it continues for long, then you should check the same with your doctor for avoiding liver disorder. 


Exposure to flu and cold viruses increases during pregnancy, as a result of which fever occurs. But if the fever lasts for more than 48 hours, then viral conditions can be expected, which are pretty dangerous. 

Unwanted back-pain-

Normal pain in pregnancy is alright, but excessive pain might indicate bladder or kidney infections, preterm labor, miscarriage or cyst. All these conditions should be essentially avoided to ensure a healthy pregnancy. 

Gushing of fluid-

If you are not in labor but are feeling wet constantly, then it is better to see a doctor. There might be a great possibility of breaking water, and this is quite dangerous in the advanced stage of pregnancy. 

Less movement of the baby-

Experiencing baby kicking is quite natural during pregnancy, and if stops suddenly, then there is something wrong. Kicking patterns should be followed and then only you will be able to realize whether the baby is normal or not. 

If you are facing any of the above symptoms, then immediately visit your doctor.
