Unplanned Pregnancy Options
If you are experiencing an unplanned pregnancy, you may be wondering what your next steps are. Unplanned pregnancies are quite common, from teenage birth mothers to women who are already mothers, and happen at all levels of society and income. Sometimes an unplanned pregnancy is unwanted simply because of the timing, or because of a lack of emotional or financial resources.
No matter the circumstances, an unplanned pregnancy can be overwhelming. As an expectant mother, there are three options that you can consider: to become a parent and raise the baby, terminate the pregnancy, or put your child in an adoption plan. If you would like support to help you make the decision that’s best for you, consider reaching out to an adoption law firm or agency that offers free counseling services for birth mothers.
Raising Your Child
The more traditional path that some women take is to raise their baby and choose to be a parent. It’s important to consider if you have the financial resources and support that will allow you to provide for your child and if you are ready and able to raise a child at this time in your life. Another important question to ask yourself is if you have a supportive spouse, partner, or network of family and friends to help support you through your pregnancy and child-rearing years. If you decide to raise your child, there are plenty of resources available that can help support you on your journey.
Although terminating an unplanned or unwanted pregnancy is not as openly discussed in some families, it is still an option that you have the right to take. Choosing an abortion is never easy, but it can be a safe path forward for women who don’t want to or are unable to continue with a pregnancy. Make sure to check what the legal requirements are in your state, and give yourself time to make the decision that’s right for you. Abortion is often only a viable option in the earlier stages of pregnancy and may require the consent of a parent or legal guardian if you are underage.

How To Tell If I Am Pregnant
Early signs of pregnancy can be easy to detect, especially for first-time mothers. This is mainly because different people show different signs and symptoms, so what works for a friend may not be the same for you. Below are a few signs to look out for if you suspect that you may be pregnant.
Missing your period
This is usually the most common sign you will notice. All pregnant women will not get a period in the following month, except in very rare cases. If you notice one week or more has passed your usual menstrual cycle, you should check with a doctor unless you are sure you have an irregular cycle.
You feel nauseous
Although morning sickness is not always a sign of pregnancy, if you experience nausea in one or two months after unprotected sex, it's probably a sign that you need to go for a pregnancy test. In some women, nausea appears earlier and may not lead to vomiting.
Tiredness and fatigue
Do you always feel sleepy and tired? Does this add to the other two signs already mentioned above? If yes, you may be experiencing one of the early signs of pregnancy. Although it is not clear how pregnancy causes sleepiness and fatigue, it could be due to the rapid changes in hormones and a rise in progesterone.
Swollen, tender breasts
Soreness of the breasts will usually happen in the first trimester of pregnancy. It could also happen due to other reasons. The soreness will slowly dissipate after a week or two as your body gradually adjusts to hormonal changes.
Pregnancy increases your blood level, which gives your kidneys more work to do as they have to process more fluid. The fluid ends in your bladder and leads to a frequent need to go. Note that other health issues like UTIs, STDs, and others may cause the need to urinate more often. However, when combined with the other symptoms above, it may be an early sign of pregnancy.
Bloating and cramping
You may feel bloated and experience cramps during early pregnancy, just as you would during the first day of your menstrual period. However, some women do not feel any of these.
Mood changes/mood swings
Some people think this only happens during late pregnancy but also in the first month for some women. The rapid changes in hormones can make you extremely emotional. Sometimes ecstatic, other times weepy.
