It doesn’t matter who you are, the moment you start wondering “Am I pregnant?” a freak-out session begins. Maybe you’re a week late, maybe you’ve been really nauseous in the mornings, or maybe you’ve felt super emotional and don’t know why. Whatever the symptoms are that start causing you to worry and consider making a Walmart-run at 2am to buy a pregnancy test, it’s important to understand this – your life isn’t over.
You may be thinking, “yeah, right, you don’t know me and you definitely haven’t met my parents,” or “if I’m pregnant, what am I going to do about school?” These are big concerns, and anyone would be pulling out their hair trying to figure things out on their own. So, I’m here to share what I know and hopefully guide you to a place that can help you understand your options as you make some big decisions.
Firstly, before you start thinking about how you’ll look with a prego belly, you need to know if you’re actually pregnant.
8 symptoms that may help answer yes to your question Am I pregnant?
Remember, pregnancy symptoms are different for each woman. You may have none, some, or all of these and not actually be pregnant. The only way to know for sure is by taking a medical-grade pregnancy test.
- Missed period
- Breast changes, such as swelling, soreness, or tingling effects
- Mood swings
- Frequent urination
If you have a few of these symptoms, I encourage you to see us at Pregnancy Resource Center of Lee County. We offer the free One Step HCG Urine Pregnancy Test which is medical-grade and very accurate. The best part is that after the pregnancy test results have arrived, our pregnancy center will be there to help you with your fears, concerns, and questions.

Another thing we love to do is help you see the positive in every situation. When it seems like there is absolutely no way you could get through this, I promise you, there will be a way.
