Excerpt from Extracts From the Records of the Boston Society for Medical Improvement, Vol. 3: Published in the Boston Medical and Surgical Journal
Dr. H. Found her very weak and pale, presenting the appearance of one sinking from the loss of blood; the pulse feeble and rapid; mind clear: countenance not anxious, but placid; skin cooler than natural. Shadid not complain of much nausea, but had vomited a little. There was pain in the abdomen, although not very acute, but continual distress. The abdomen had, the appearance of that of a woman in the seventh month of pregnancy. In shape; resonance considerable - less below the umbilicus than above. She had passed two catamenial periods, and if pregnant it must be of about seven weeks duration - as she usually menstruated once in three weeks. The uterus. Examined per vaginam, had a gravid feel, and, when raised by the finger, increased the distress in the bowels. The breasts were not much changed, with the exception of a very dark areola around the nipples.
