Do you think you might be pregnant?

Am I pregnant? Discovering you might be pregnant can leave you feeling a mixture of emotions. Undoubtedly, this often makes it difficult to know what to do next and it's important for you to get the right kind of support at a time that's right for you. Indeed, having access to information helps you to feel more in control of what's happening. It may also be helpful for you to talk to somebody. Keep reading to find out what are the most common pregnancy symptoms.

If you suspect you might be pregnant, the first step is to find out for certain.

Symptoms of Pregnancy

1. You've missed your period

All women experience this early symptom. In addition you might experience a small amount of spotting, lighter than a period, called implantation bleeding. It occurs about 8 to 13 days after fertilisation when embryo implants in the uterus.

2. Your breasts hurt

Breast tenderness can start as early as a few days after conception, and often persists well into pregnancy.

3. Nausea or morning sickness

It usually starts about one month after you became pregnant. In particular, many women compare it to seasickness or carsickness. It usually comes in the morning but can surprise you at any time of the day or night.

4. Increased urination

Many women need to use the bathroom more frequently starting especially about two to three weeks after conception. This is caused by the increased amount of blood in your body which causes your kidneys to process extra fluid that finds its way to your bladder.

5. Fatigue

Many expectant moms experience increased tiredness early on. Early in the pregnancy, a lot of your energy goes into building the life-support system for your baby called placenta. All of that hard work your body does might make you a little sleepy!

Pregnancy Tests & Pregnancy Ultrasounds

Nevertheless, the emergence of these symptoms doesn't necessarily mean that you're pregnant. They might indicate that you're getting sick or have a completely unrelated origin. That's why it's so important to, first of all, determine for certain whether you're pregnant and how far along you are.

In Gianna Care we do it by offering you a free & confidential pregnancy test. If your urine pregnancy test is positive, we'll provide you with an ultrasound, free of charge. Ultrasounds are helpful to determine how long you have been pregnant, as well as help identify any potential concerns associated with your pregnancy.

I'm pregnant. What now?

If you are pregnant, you owe it to yourself to learn about all your options: parenting, adoption and abortion. It is extremely important to take the time to think them over in order to make an informed decision you won't regret. Many women find it helpful to talk to someone about their options. We do not make any profit from your choice, but we also don't offer or refer for abortions. No matter what your choice is, our trained counsellors and client support workers are here for you.
