Pregnant? Concerned you might be?
Well, we’ve got to find out for sure if this is pregnancy or if your possible “symptoms” are just a hormonal shift.
You are important. The first step is to confirm your pregnancy and check on your health. Then, we can start discussing options.
How do I know if I’m pregnant?
There are tons of options to find out if you’re pregnant! 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 detects the presence of the hCG hormone (human chorionic gonadotropin – otherwise known as the pregnancy hormone) in your urine and an OB ultrasound.

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
- Breast Tenderness
- Missed Period
- Feeling lightheaded or dizzy
- Frequent Urination
- A “bloated” feeling in your abdomen
- Morning Sickness (can happen any time of day and 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 to have a pregnancy test and an OB ultrasound.
Getting sweaty palms? Is the idea of being pregnant totally freaking you out, inconvenient, or just not in your immediate plans? We get it! We see women like you every day. The best part is, we have answers to help guide you in making your decision – a decision that affects 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. Give us a call or text us and come by for a free pregnancy test, and when necessary, a free limited OB ultrasound and STD/STI screening.
So what if I am pregnant? Then what?
Once you’ve had a medical grade positive pregnancy test, you’ve got some things to think about. But before we get into all of our options, let’s chat about your prenatal care. First and foremost, you’ve got to take care of you. Taking care of you 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.
