Pregnancy period varies from woman to woman. You may not have a problem in the first pregnancy but this doesn’t ensure the same thing in the very next issue.
I’ve already discussed the pregnancy in my book in detailed. Further, in this series, I’ll be discussing common pregnancy complications.
Common Pregnancy Complications
Most of the pregnancies are uncomplicated. As per my practical experience, I can easily categorize pregnancy complications in two broader categories.
First one is the complication develop during the pregnancy period which subsides with time. Secondary, are the health problems present before pregnancy like diseases or issues that could lead to complications.
Whether a complication is common or rare, there are ways to manage problems that come up during pregnancy. both category complications are easily managed. The problem is for those women who don’t have access to medical facilities.
Common Pregnancy Complications involve the mother’s health and/or the fetus health.
Your health advisor will manage these complications with the regular physical examination, routine tests like ultrasound, lab tests and treat or manage to avoid further complications.
The following are some of the common pregnancy complications:
Complications that Develop During Pregnancy
Hyperemesis Gravidarum: It’s severe nausea that leads to significant weight loss.
Anemia During Pregnancy: It is very common during pregnancy and if not treated on time may be fatal.
Placenta Previa: In this placenta may totally or partially cover the cervix. It may cause severe bleeding
Gestational Diabetes: This type of diabetes occurs during pregnancy. If not treated will affect the health of your baby.
Preeclampsia: It may lead to severely hike in blood pressure lead to fits. It can be life-threatening if left untreated.
Preterm Labour: When a baby is delivered before 37 weeks, it’s called a preterm birth and it can cause health problems for the baby.

Bleeding during pregnancy especially in the third trimester increased the risk for mother and fetus.
Ectopic pregnancy: In this fertilized egg implants outside the uterus, also known as tubal pregnancy. It causes internal bleeding if not treated on time.
