What are symptoms of complications during the first trimester of pregnancy?

During your first trimester of pregnancy, contact your doctor if you experience any of the following symptoms of possible complications:

  • Vaginal bleeding or abnormal vaginal discharge
  • A temperature higher than 101 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Abdominal pain or cramping
  • A burning sensation during urination
  • Diarrhea that lasts longer than 24 hours
  • Severe vomiting
You might start your first trimester paying attention to warning signs that indicate pregnancy, like a missed period. Once you know that you're pregnant, you may be concerned about miscarriage. Miscarriage is very common in the first trimester, so keep your eye out for signs that something is wrong. Abdominal cramping around this time is normal, but if it's severe or if it occurs with bleeding, see your doctor right away. If you have any questions about any new symptoms, talk to a doctor to make sure it's not a sign of something serious.
