Early Pregnancy Signs and Symptoms Answer A43322
Welcome to ehealthforum,
If you suspect pregnancy chances, consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately), and if pregnancy gets confirmed, consider checking your serial HCG levels to make sure they are rising or doubling up within 48-72 hours. If HCG levels are not adequate, then external hormonal supplements would be considered to be started to help you in preventing miscarriage (since you had previous miscarriage). Visit your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation, clarification and assistance. 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. If you get pregnant again, look out for danger signs like increase in intensity of abdominal cramps, increasing back pain, fresh bleeding etc. Avoid bending or lifting any heavy weights and avoid heavy work. Avoid standing for long duration and avoid climbing stairs. Avoid use of caffeinated and carbonated beverages.
Take care.
