Am I Pregnant?
If you have missed your period, you might be worried that you are pregnant. How can you find out for sure?
The following list gives some of the most common pregnancy symptoms:
- Spotting or Light Bleeding or Cramping
- Missed Period
- Swollen/Tender Breasts
- Nausea/Morning Sickness
- Frequent Urination
- Darkening of Areolas (the skin around your nipples)
- Food Cravings or Food Aversions
None of these symptoms are a sure sign of pregnancy, though. Even a home pregnancy test isn’t always accurate. The best way to confirm whether you are pregnant is to take a lab quality pregnancy test followed by an ultrasound. We can do this free of charge, in a one-hour pregnancy confirmation appointment.
A pregnancy test is just the first step.
At Care Net, a pregnancy test is just the first step of our free pregnancy evaluation service. A lab quality urine test will measure for pregnancy hormones in your system. However, since up to 1 in 5 pregnancies end on their own before the 7th week, an ultrasound is an important next step. It will confirm if the pregnancy is potentially viable and indicate how far along you are – two crucial pieces of information to help determine your options. We offer limited ultrasound as part of a free, confidential pregnancy evaluation.If you think you might be pregnant, contact us today to make an appointment.
