    Health Problems in Pregnancy

    Every pregnancy has some risk of problems. The causes can be conditions you already have or conditions you develop. They also include being pregnant with more than one baby, previous problem pregnancies, or being over age 35. They can affect your health and the health of your baby.

    If you have a chronic condition, you should talk to your health care provider about how to minimize your risk before you get pregnant. Once you are pregnant, you may need a health care team to monitor your pregnancy. Examples of common conditions that can complicate a pregnancy include

    • Heart disease
    • High blood pressure
    • Kidney problems
    • Autoimmune disorders
    • Sexually transmitted diseases
    • Diabetes
    • Cancer
    • Infections

    Other conditions that can make pregnancy risky can happen while you are pregnant - for example, gestational diabetes and Rh incompatibility. Good prenatal care can help detect and treat them.

    Some discomforts, like nausea, back pain, and fatigue, are common during pregnancy. Sometimes it is hard to know what is normal. Call your doctor or midwife if something is bothering or worrying you.

    • Bed rest during pregnancy
    • Hydramnios
    • Hyperemesis gravidarum
    • Insufficient cervix
    • Placenta abruptio
    • Placenta abruptio
    • Placenta previa
    • Vaginal bleeding in early pregnancy
    • Vaginal bleeding in late pregnancy
    • Vaginal bleeding in pregnancy

    Kidney Diseases

    Also called: Renal disease

    You have two kidneys, each about the size of your fist. They are near the middle of your back, just below the rib cage. Inside each kidney there are about a million tiny structures called nephrons. They filter your blood. They remove wastes and extra water, which become urine. The urine flows through tubes called ureters. It goes to your bladder, which stores the urine until you go to the bathroom.

    Most kidney diseases attack the nephrons. This damage may leave kidneys unable to remove wastes. Causes can include genetic problems, injuries, or medicines. You have a higher risk of kidney disease if you have diabetes, high blood pressure, or a close family member with kidney disease. Chronic kidney disease damages the nephrons slowly over several years. Other kidney problems include

    • Cancer
    • Cysts
    • Stones
    • Infections

    Your doctor can do blood and urine tests to check if you have kidney disease. If your kidneys fail, you will need dialysis or a kidney transplant.
