Welcome to ehealthforum,
The medications prescribed should be helpful. Make sure you are well hydrated and take meals and small snacks at regular intervals (maternal dehydration and low glucose levels can affect the fetus). If you are worried, you should consider taking serial HCG level test. The doubling up of levels within 48-72 hours will show that the pregnancy is going on smoothly. If levels are not adequate, external hormonal supplements can be started to help you carry on with pregnancy smoothly. Repeat ultrasound scan should also be done (within 1-2 hour of a good meal and fluid intake) to see if fetal heart rate has improved. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet. Look out for danger signs like increase in intensity of abdominal cramps, increasing back pain, fresh bleeding etc. Avoid lifting any heavy weights and avoid heavy work. Avoid standing for long durations and avoid climbing stairs. Avoid use of caffeinated and carbonated beverages.
Take care.
