Cramping is a very common symptom during early pregnancy. It is a normal process to have this in pregnancy. If you are concerned, contact your physician and be seen to determine that the pregnancy is in the uterus.
You have received very good advice from the other two respondants. I specifically applaud the second individual because it is quite extensive answer.
I always worry about an individual who is short of breath. Make sure you can walk up a flight of stairs or a city block. If you cannot, you must see your healthcare provider because it could be associated with significant risks.
If not, drink plenty of liquids, change positiions slowly. Stay out of the oppressive heat, it can cause significant problems.
If you continue to have these symptoms you should contact your physician.View Thread
This is always a difficult question to answer. There are changing thoughts on the "actual" risk related to the medications. It appears now, the risk is thought to be quite low, although not zero.
A safe medication for someone who is psychophrenic is Haldol. This is a very safe medication which can be used. The issue of anxiety disorder is harder, what gestational age the individual is in, etc...
I agree with the other responder which is to contact your physician and discuss further.
I believe there are a number of factors to consider. Did she feel ill during her time there. How many weeks was she. There is a period of time before organogenesis begins in which there is an all or none phenomenum in which the pregnancy either miscarriages or is normal.
Is methanol really teratogenic? If your wife did not feel ill during the time period, then there really is no risk.
The issue really is can she get enough air and breaks in order to stay cool. I certainly worry about that temperature. I would try and see what her temperature is at work. If it is as high as that, yes, that is dangerous and she should not be working in those conditions. If she is able to maintain her temperature in the normal range, she can continue working just as long as she can keep well hydrated.
The key is where is the cramping. if it is in the middle of the lower abdomen, it is perfectly normal. If it was an ectopic pregnancy, the cramping would be more likely to be on one side or the other. There are ways to know if it is in the correct place. The easiest is in fact ultrasound. The other thing you can do is have two blood tests 48 hours apart.
I am so happy for you!! This is great news. congratulations.View Thread
