Concerned you might be?
Well, we’ve got to find out for sure if this is anything to be worried about or if your possible “symptoms” are just a weird hormonal shift.
You are important. The first step is to confirm your pregnancy and check on your health. Then, we start discussing options.
How do I know if I’m pregnant?
The at home tests or the period and fertility apps may contain good indicators, but nothing beats a medical grade pregnancy testing that recognizes the hCG hormone (human chorionic gonadotropin otherwise known as the pregnancy hormone) in your body and an ultrasound to see if the pregnancy is viable.
Do any of these symptoms sound familiar? If you think you may be pregnant, here are some pretty common symptoms to look for.
- Mood Swings
- Unusual Food Cravings
- Tender Tata’s (breast)
- Missed Period
- 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 happens! This is why you need pregnancy testing and an ultrasound.
Getting sweaty palms? Is the idea of being pregnant totally freaking you out? Inconvenient? Not in your immediate plans? We get it! We see women like you every day. The best part is, we have answers to your questions to support you in making a decision that 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?
Now that you’ve had a medical grade positive pregnancy test you’ve got a lot to think about. But before we get into all our options (and there’s a lot of them) Let’s chat about your prenatal care, because first and foremost you’ve got to take care of you. Which means, understanding your body to help make the best decision for you in this particular situation. Then let’s take a look at the options you will likely be thinking about over the next few days and weeks.
