Pregnancy Information

I think I may be pregnant. Now what?

 

Skipping a period doesn't necessarily mean you are pregnant. So, until you can verify that you are pregnant by having a medical-grade pregnancy test performed, try not to worry.

Common pregnancy symptoms:

 

The more symptoms you are experiencing from the list below,

the more likely it is you may be pregnant. However, these 

symptoms can be caused by other things.

  • Missed or late period

  • Dizziness or lightheadedness

  • Nausea and/or vomiting

  • Headaches

  • Frequently tired

  • Swollen or tender breasts

  • Changes in appetite and/or food preferences

  • Increased moodiness

 

During your visit here at Savannah Care Center, your client advocate will run a free medical-grade pregnancy test.  The tests we use are quality controlled and 99% accurate. It is best if the test is run at least one day after your missed period.

 

If your results are positive, you can be scheduled for a free limited ultrasound if you like*. During this ultrasound, a licensed professional trained to perform limited obstetrical ultrasounds will check to see that the unborn baby is in the uterus, the unborn baby has a heartbeat, and determine the unborn baby's gestational age (how far along you are in your pregnancy). 

If your test is negative, our medical staff will review some of the more common reasons that could cause a skipped period, as well as appropriate follow-up.
