Based on the provided medical history, the main concern appears to be related to reproductive health issues, specifically focused on complications surrounding childbirth. Here are some diagnostic procedures that may be appropriate: 1. **Blood tests**: A routine blood test can track the overall health status, checking for infections, anemia, and more. 2. **Ultrasound**: To examine the size and position of the fetus, placenta, and amniotic fluid levels, which could be contributing to the patient's discomfort. 3. **Cardiotocography (CTG)**: Monitors the fetal heart rate and uterine contractions to evaluate how the baby is responding and coping to the labour process. 4. **Pelvic examination**: Can be done to assess the cervix dilation, effacement, the station and position of the fetus which could be causing the pain and discomfort. 5. **Urine test**: To check for UTIs which may trigger premature labor. 6. **Swab tests**: Can be helpful to check for the presence of group B strep infection, which can be harmful to the baby if not treated. Remember, only a healthcare professional can appropriately diagnose and prescribe treatments. Please consult with a healthcare provider for accurate information.
