So you've might have felt that your body has been a bit different lately and that you're matching up suspiciously well with the symptoms of pregnancy on google. Things are just too accurate and you might feel like you actually are pregnant. If this is your feeling then you need to find a confirmation of this as quickly as possible.
This can be a nerve-racking experience to think that you could be pregnant, for some...and for some, this could be the best day ever for them. But before your hopes can go up or down, you need to confirm whether your pregnant or not.
There are two ways to be sure. You can take an at-home pregnancy test or you can go to your
doctor to be tested. There are also options for Planned Parenthood or other low-cost health clinics if a regular doctor isn’t feasible.
This step is crucial before doing anything else or second-guessing.
Home pregnancy tests are available at most drug stores. They usually cost about $8–$15 in the U.S. Pregnancy tests are effective early —as soon as a few days after a missed period.
If you do take a home pregnancy test, you should go to a health clinic to get the results confirmed by a doctor before you decide anything.
One reason to get the results confirmed is that it is possible to get a false positive. If you don’t want to go to a health clinic right away, you can purchase two different brands of home pregnancy tests. This way you will know at least one, if not both, are accurate.
Now discovering that your pregnant it is completely normal to panic, feel waves of different emotions and even cry. Through these feelings, you now need to think about what you are going to do.
You need to make the decision that is right for you.
However, it is important not to wait too long before making your decision, as multiple options can become more abundant as time goes on. Despite the ticking time, don’t let anyone else pressure you into doing something that isn’t right for you.
The decision should be yours and yours alone. For some women, this is a very difficult decision that shouldn’t be made lightly. Luckily, there is support out there that is willing to help you sort out your options.
Planned Parenthood and other such clinics have trained counselors there to help you with the tough decisions that await you. They can help you list all the pros and cons of your choices and help you narrow it down to your final decision.
Now that you realize you are pregnant, the heavy choice comes along with what you will do with the child. For some women, they are happy and ready (financially and mentally) to birth and raise a child. If this is your state, then, by all means, go on and birth that baby.
Make sure to keep educating your self on how to raise a baby and what to expect. Read up as well some of the body changes you will go through as well. Especially if this is your first time being pregnant it is important on being aware of how to take care of yourself.
For some women, there are many situations that may cause them not to want the baby...or can't physically afford it. But if termination of the child is not that appetizing to you then considering adoption is a feasible option.
If you feel that you cant properly and safely raise the child then this may be a smart choice.
This would mean in continuing to give birth to the child but setting it up for adoption. Though in your process of pregnancy it is possible to change your mind to keep it.
Make absolute sure on this decision, as once the child is getting adopted, you may not be able to take them back.
There are many reasons for this choice, things such as rape, teen pregnancy... a child of incest or an uncareful night can cause a pregnancy.
A woman should not be shames of this choice as it is her body, and she is allowed to rid of it. If you feel your not ready to bear the physical changes of pregnancy and know you can't handle the responsibility...or it is just in a wrong time and place. Then the consideration is ok.
It is recommended going to the doctor to follow the steps advised for termination, depending on which trimester you are on.
