Tom & Patty
We are not the quick and easy case. We are not the couple/family that was matched immediately. We spent a lot of time waiting, wondering and hoping that this was really worth it. We received a lot of contacts that we dismissed right away. You just seem to know when it is not the right match. Well, we are excitedly awaiting the birth of our child at the end of January 2007. more ...

1. Low, continuous back pain that persists over a 24 hour period is one of the reasons to call your doctor. This type of consistent pain may be a sign of pre-term labor.
2. Pressure against your pelvic floor that seems to increase rhythmically is also one of the reasons to call your doctor without delay. This may be the baby's head actually pressing against your uterus, and could signal the beginning of labor.
3. Vaginal bleeding of any type is one of the emergency reasons to call your doctor. Vaginal bleeding may be an indicator of a condition known as placenta previa, where the placenta has attached itself in the wrong area, usually over the opening of the Cervix. There are few stronger reasons to call your doctor in a hurry.
4. A sudden increase in vaginal discharge or the expulsion a slightly bloody lump of mucous may indicate you have lost the mucosal plug that seals your cervical opening during pregnancy. If this happens before the last three weeks of pregnancy, it is one of the very valid reasons to call your doctor.
5. Strong painful abdominal contraction accompanied by bleeding are one of the most extreme reasons to call your doctor without delay. This may be the sign of an impending miscarriage.
6. Anytime you experience vaginal leaking, or a flush of liquid being released is one of the completely valid reasons to call your doctor, as a pregnancy cannot continue once the amniotic sack has been ruptured.
If you experience any of these reasons to call your doctor, don't delay. Every second counts to help ensure a healthy outcome to your pregnancy.
