Pregnancy Symptoms

Pregnant? Think you might be? How do I know?

Pregnancy SymptomsCould you be pregnant? The proof is in the pregnancy test. But even before you miss a period, you might suspect that you're pregnant. Here are the first signs of pregnancy. You are important. The first step is to confirm your pregnancy and check on your health. Then, we start discussing options.

There are tons of options, however, not all of them are accurate. The at-home tests, or the period and fertility apps may contain good indicators, but nothing beats a medical-grade pregnancy test that measures the hCG hormone (human chorionic gonadotropin otherwise known as the pregnancy hormone) and an ultrasound.

The Symptoms

If you think you may be pregnant, here are some pretty common symptoms to look for.

  • Headaches
  • Mood swings
  • Unusual food cravings
  • Tender tata’s (breast)
  • Missed period
  • Fatigue
  • Feeling lightheaded or dizzy
  • Going to the bathroom more often
  • A “bloated” feeling in your abdomen
  • Morning sickness (should be called “All Day” sickness, but includes nausea and vomiting)
  • Some cramping and even possible bleeding. Did you know that some women mistake implantation bleeding for a period and are really farther along in their pregnancy? It can happen, which is why you need to have a pregnancy test and an ultrasound.

It’s not uncommon for the idea of being pregnant to feel totally overwhelming. This can be a surprise and for some feels very inconvenient. Pregnancy might not be in your immediate plans and we understand! We see women like you every day.

The best part is, we can provide information and education for your questions that will support you in making a decision. Your decision needs to works for you, your life and your future. You can research the Internet all day and get bombarded by all the information you’ll find. But, we’ve done a lot of that work for you here! Our website offers you answers to questions you may not have even thought of yet.

However, the best answers come by talking it out in person with someone who totally understands.

So what if I am pregnant…. Then what?

Even if you should choose to terminate, it's important to understand the value of you, your health and prenatal care during this decision-making time.

Remember, first and foremost you’ve got to take care of you. This means, understanding your body to help make the best decision for you in this particular situation.
