Early Pregnancy Tips

If you have had complications from previous pregnancies that caused premature delivery or late pregnancy loss, or if you have had multiple miscarriages, you should let your doctor be aware which allows him to have you on regimented observation to prevent further miscarriages.

Seek genetic screening, if necessary. Also ask your doctor if you should be tested for any genetic diseases that are common in your ethnicity: If either of you are Caucasian you should be checked for cystic fibrosis; of Jewish-European (Ashkenazi ) should be checked for Tay-Sachs disease, French Canadian, or Louisiana Cajun decent, if either of you are of African decent you should be checked for sickle cell traits, and finally if either of you are of Greek, Italian, Southeast Asian, or Filipino decent you should be checked for thalassemias.

Obstetrical difficulties for two or more miscarriages, a stillbirth, a long period of infertility, or children with birth defects or being married to a cousin or blood relative are also reasons to seek to counsel on genetic concerns.

Get Tested. While seeing your doctors for background health history, you should also get a head start on some test that every pregnancy receives. A blood test is the fastest way to achieve results on such diseases such as:

Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). All pregnant women are routinely tested for all STDs, which includes syphilis, gonorrhea, chlamydia, herpes, human papillomavirus (HPV) and HIV. Having these test before conception is so much better ( in the case of HPV ) Getting the vaccine. Even when you are sure you don't have an STD, you should still ask to be tested, just as a precaution.

Thyroid function. Thyroid function can affect pregnancy. If you have ever had thyroid problems, or if your family have a history of thyroid disease, this is a very important test to have.

Toxoplasmosis titer, if you have an outdoor cat that eats raw or rare meat, or-or do gardening without gloves. if you are immune you have nothing to worry about now or ever. if you are not immune seek treatment.

Cytomegalovirus (CMV) antibodies to determine whether or not you are immune. If diagnosed with CMV it is generally recommended that you wait six months before you try to conceive.

Rubella titer, to check for immunity to rubella.

Varicella titer, to check for immunity to Varicella (chicken pox).

Tuberculosis 9If you live in a high incidence area.

Hepatitis B if you are in a high-risk category, such as health care worker. and have not been immunized.

Rh factor, to see if you are positive or negative. If you are negative, your partner should be tested if he is positive. If you are both negative there is no need to worry about getting Rh.

Hemoglobin or hematocrit, to test for anemia.
