Maybe you’ve missed a period or maybe you’ve taken an at-home pregnancy test, but, either way, you think you might be pregnant. I’m sure you’re feeling a mix of emotions: excitement, fear, anxiety, love and joy. But, what are your next steps?
Take a Deep Breath
It’s natural to feel a wide range of emotions during this time. Whatever you are feeling, the first thing we recommend is to take a deep breath. When facing something unexpected, it’s best to take a moment to step back, take a deep breath and think through your response to the situation. This is also a great time to take notice of what emotions you are feeling and allow yourself to process the possibility of being pregnant. Know that you always have support at every step with Choices Resource Center.
Schedule an Appointment
After you have taken some time for yourself, the next step is to consider making an appointment with us here at Choices Resource Center. The first reason you should do this is because we can provide you with a medical grade pregnancy test to confirm your pregnancy. We can also perform an ultrasound to determine the viability of your pregnancy and determine the date.
Before making a decision, we always recommend that you gather all possible information. Here at Choices, we are here to provide you with the most factual information surrounding parenting, adoption and abortion. At your first appointment with us, we will give you all the necessary information and resources to make an educated decision.
No matter what you decide, it is important for you to surround yourself with friends and family that will support you and provide a safe place during this time. We are always happy to provide a listening ear and walk alongside you through this journey. We are passionate about serving women and men during an unplanned pregnancy, and we are here to help!
