Every woman’s pregnancy is as unique as she is. Some women experience every symptom from the beginning. In contrast, others don’t have symptoms for weeks or months. Usually, a missed period is the first sign of pregnancy, but there are others to look for. Get free pregnancy testing and an ultrasound at New Beginnings to verify your pregnancy.
Are You Experiencing These Symptoms Too?
The American Pregnancy Association lists the following as the most common early signs of pregnancy:
- Missed period
- Tender, swollen breasts
- Nausea with or without vomiting
- Increased urination
Other symptoms they say you may experience in your first trimester are:
- Mood swings
- Food cravings or aversions
- Darkening of the areolas (the area around your nipples)
- Light spotting
Could Symptoms Be Caused By Something Else?
You could miss your period because of excessive weight gain or loss, a hormonal imbalance, or excessive exercise. If your period is irregular, you should wait longer to take a pregnancy test.
Being nauseous could be from food poisoning, anxiety, stress, or a flu bug. You could be overly tired due to depression, exhaustion, or improper nutrition.
Our pregnancy tests are urine lab-quality and offered at no cost to you. Begin by taking one of our tests as soon as possible.
Are You Really Pregnant?
You may be surprised to learn that an estimated 26% of all pregnancies end in a natural miscarriage. It is possible to get a positive pregnancy test result days or even weeks after a miscarriage. How do you find out if your pregnancy is viable (growing) or if you’ve miscarried? Ultrasound is the most accurate method of verifying your pregnancy.
At New Beginnings, our medical personnel provide a free limited obstetrical ultrasound after confirming pregnancy with a positive pregnancy test from us. Ultrasound offers the following information:
- Confirms if your pregnancy is viable by hearing a detectable heartbeat
- Locates your pregnancy to ensure it is in your uterus
- It tells you how far along you are
