Wondering whether you’re pregnant can make time stand still. You may question how you can raise a child or wonder how your life could change.

Before assuming you’re pregnant, it’s best to take a pregnancy test. Typically, women take an at-home test and confirm the result at a doctor’s office or clinic. Birthright of Memphis offers free pregnancy confirmation services to help you chart a path forward.

Am I Really Pregnant?

Some women immediately think they’re pregnant because of a missed period. The same is true for other pregnancy symptoms.

The only way to be sure is to take a pregnancy test and follow up with a medical provider.

Common pregnancy symptoms are listed below. Remember, not all women experience signs of pregnancy.

  • Missed period
  • Tender, swollen breasts
  • Fatigue
  • Frequent urination
  • Nausea with or without vomiting
  • Moodiness
  • Cramping
  • Constipation
  • Nasal congestion
  • Food aversions
  • Bloating

Taking a Test

The best time to test for pregnancy is a few days after a missed period. In your body, hCG, or human chorionic gonadotropin, needs time to reach detectable levels. This pregnancy hormone is detected by urine and blood-based tests.

At-home pregnancy tests can be found at pharmacies and grocery stores. Be sure to read the instructions carefully, as different brands vary.

A positive pregnancy test can cause you to feel many different emotions. Take a deep breath and try not to panic. Confirming your test result is a great first step. We are here for you!
