See your OB: Early morning headache and nausea at this stage of your pregnancy can be a sign of pre-eclampsia. You need your blood pressure checked, an exam, and possibly urine checked. It may be nothing, but it could also be early warning signals of something more serious. ...Read more

Get checked out ASAP: If this is your first pregnancy, eclampsia can occur quite frequently. Usually it can cause severe swelling, very high blood pressure, headaches, cramping, pain, blurry vision. If it is eclampsia, the only cure is delivery of baby. This can be fatal. (sybil in downton abby, season 3).....Seek medical help now! ...Read more

Low dull back ache, headache, nausea, and 7 contractions in one hour. 37 weeks 1 day pregnant. Is this labor?

Possible! Go to L&D!: This could be start of labor with 7 contractions in one hour. With first pregnancy and headache also need to consider precclampsia. I would recommend you go to labor and delivery to be monitored for fetal heart tones, contractions, blood pressure and urine protein. Back ache could be common late pregnancy discomfort or fetal head position occiput posterior (face up). ...Read more

Significance of low co2 (17mEq/l) and high anion gap (19mEq/l) in late (37 weeks) pregnancy? All other tests in metabolic panel within normal limits.

Significance of low co2 (17mEq/l) and high anion gap (19mEq/l) in late (37 weeks) pregnancy? All other tests in metabolic panel within normal limits.

The doctor who ordered them will be in the best position to interpret them. ...Read more
