Many questions come up with an unplanned pregnancy – you are not in this alone. You may feel overwhelmed, excited, or even confused about what’s next. Your first step should be to confirm your pregnancy.
One of the first signs of pregnancy is a missed period. Though this may be a pregnancy symptom, there are many reasons your menstrual cycle could change. Things like hormonal shifts, stress, or weight gain or loss, can also be reasons to miss a period.
We recommend talking with your doctor or a pregnancy center like ours to confirm your pregnancy with a lab-quality pregnancy test and an ultrasound. This will help you move forward with clarity and confidence.
Common Pregnancy Symptoms
Though a missed period is a very common pregnancy symptom, there are many other pregnancy symptoms you could be experiencing. Here are some to watch for:
