An unplanned pregnancy can seem overwhelming, but putting your health first is a top priority. 

We know you probably have many questions about your pregnancy, and we’re here to offer insight into the pregnancy journey and steps to protect your health first. 

Your Physical & Mental Health

As you know, your body, physically and mentally, changes when you are pregnant. Pregnancy hormones build rapidly, affecting everything from how often you urinate to mood swings. 

Physical Changes in Early Pregnancy

You can expect your body to respond to the increase in hormones almost immediately. The following are some of the physical symptoms you may experience early in pregnancy:

  • Nausea with or without vomiting
  • Frequent urination
  • Breast tenderness
  • Fatigue
  • Changes in appetite

Mental Changes in Early Pregnancy

The increase of the hormones estrogen and progesterone during early pregnancy can affect a woman’s mental health. The following are some of the emotional effects you may experience early in pregnancy:

  • Mood swings
  • Anxiety
  • Irritability
  • Sadness

All the changes in your body and mental health can be a whirlwind. Your emotional and physical health is essential to us, so set up a free appointment to get the education you need to prepare for each stage of pregnancy. 

Insight into Pregnancy Tests & Ultrasounds

A big part of protecting your health during your pregnancy journey is to confirm your pregnancy details, starting with two steps: pregnancy testing and an ultrasound. 

Pregnancy tests detect the presence of hCG, confirming pregnancy. Ultrasounds use sound waves to generate images of the developing pregnancy. They provide information on how far along you are and can identify any possible complications. 

We offer free and confidential medical pregnancy services so you can get the clarity you need. These services include pregnancy testing, ultrasounds, and STD testing.

Understanding Potential Complications

You could be at a higher risk for potential pregnancy complications due to pre-existing conditions or your age. It’s important to be proactive with your healthcare provider to determine the best plan for you and protect your health.

Other complications to be aware of are ectopic pregnancy or miscarriage. Each of these requires immediate medical attention from your local medical provider.
