If you are wondering whether or not you’re pregnant, your mind is probably racing with questions. It’s common to feel confused, scared or overwhelmed.

Common symptoms of pregnancy include a late or missed period, tender or swollen breasts, frequent urination, fatigue, and nausea.

The first step to take to see if you might be pregnant is to take an accurate pregnancy test.

We provide many services for free, including pregnancy tests and some limited ultrasounds.

If you have an unplanned pregnancy, you might not know what to do next. You might worry that the father won’t welcome the news. You might not be sure you can afford to care for a baby. You might worry if past choices you have made, such as drinking or drug use, will affect your unborn baby’s health. You might be concerned that having a baby will keep you from finishing school or pursuing a career. If you are pregnant after being raped, you might feel ashamed, numb, or afraid. You might wonder what options you have.

Here are some next steps to help you move forward:

1. Start taking care of yourself right away. Take 400 to 800 micrograms (400 to 800 mcg or 0.4 to 0.8 mg) folic acid every.
2. Stop alcohol, tobacco, and drug use. Ask for help quitting smoking.
3. Make a doctor’s visit to confirm your pregnancy.
4. Discuss your health and issues that could affect your pregnancy with a trained pregnancy counselor or doctor.
