What is an early pregnancy emergency?
Early pregnancy emergencies are emergencies that occur during the first twelve weeks of pregnancy. During this time, there are many situations that can not only endanger the life of the baby, but the mother as well. These situations can progress to emergencies that can have fatal consequences, so it is critical to see an OB/GYN specialist who understands the signs of an early pregnancy emergency right away.

Other Early Pregnancy emergency symptoms
The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) states that preeclampsia is a serious blood pressure disorder that can affect all of the organs in a woman’s body. A woman has preeclampsia when she has high blood pressure and other signs that her organ systems are not working normally.
One of these signs is proteinuria (an abnormal amount of protein in the urine). A woman with preeclampsia whose condition is worsening will develop other signs and symptoms known as “severe features.” These include a low number of platelets in the blood, abnormal kidney or liver function, pain over the upper abdomen, changes in vision, fluid in the lungs, or a severe headache. A very high blood pressure reading also is considered a severe feature.
According to ACOG, Hyperemesis gravidarum is the most severe form of nausea and vomiting of pregnancy. It occurs in up to 3% of pregnancies. This condition may be diagnosed when a woman has lost 5% of her pre-pregnancy weight and has other problems related to dehydration (loss of body fluids). Women with hyperemesis gravidarum need treatment to stop their vomiting and restore body fluids.
