Is the word “unwell” used only with pregnant ladies?

When a lady becomes pregnant, I don’t think people refer to her as being “unwell” — those days are gone. As for your question, the word “unwell” can be used with anyone — not just pregnant ladies.

*Jai began to feel unwell after his stroll in the park.
