First of all, don’t panic.
If you missed a period, it is easy to assume that you are pregnant. That may be the case, but a missed period is not the only sign of pregnancy. It could also be a sign of high stress in your life or another possible medical condition.
Early Signs of Pregnancy
If you think you might be pregnant, here are five early signs of pregnancy to look out for until you can take a pregnancy test. Early signs of pregnancy include:
- Late or missed period
- Swollen, tender, or itchy breasts
- Nausea and/or vomiting
- Frequent urination
- Unexplained fatigue
Other Symptoms of Pregnancy
Other symptoms may also include:
- Light spotting
- Nasal congestion
- Food aversions or cravings
Remember that any one of these signs on its own is not enough to know that you are pregnant, and some women have no pregnancy symptoms. The only real way to know is by taking a pregnancy test. A pregnancy test detects the hormone hCG that is created by your body when you are pregnant. (Note: In rare cases, hCG can be present in your blood for other medical reasons.)
Where can I get a pregnancy test?
You can make an appointment at A Woman’s Concern where we will help you to gather all the information you need to make an informed decision about your pregnancy. We will listen to your concerns. We will provide a medical-grade urine pregnancy test to confirm your pregnancy. If you qualify, we can perform a limited ultrasound that same day. The ultrasound provides you with important information about your pregnancy.
After gathering this information and reviewing all of your pregnancy options (abortion, adoption or parenting), you will be able to make an informed decision about your pregnancy.
We’re here for YOU.
