According to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, when your spouse is pregnant you should not hesitate to call your doctor or midwife if something is bothering or worrying either of you. Sometimes physical changes can be signs of a problem.
Call your doctor or midwife as soon as you can if your spouse:
- is bleeding or leaking fluid from the vagina
- has sudden or severe swelling in the face, hands, or fingers
- gets severe or long-lasting headaches
- has discomfort, pain or cramping in the lower abdomen
- has a fever or chills
- is vomiting or have persistent nausea
- feels discomfort, pain or burning with urination
- has problems seeing or blurred vision
- feels dizzy
- senses a change in your baby’s movement
- suspects your baby is moving less than normally after 28 weeks of pregnancy (if she can count less than 10 movements in 2 hours or less)
