Pregnancy Q & A

What are the early signs of pregnancy?

When you become pregnant, it triggers hormonal changes in your body to support the process of growing a new life. Some of the early warning signs of pregnancy include:

  • Fatigue
  • Tender breasts
  • Nausea 
  • Vomiting
  • Increased urination
  • Missed period

Every woman experiences pregnancy symptoms differently. Though your periods do stop while you’re pregnant, you may or may not have any other signs.

When should I see a doctor if I think I am pregnant?

If you think you might be pregnant, you should take an at-home pregnancy test. If your results are negative, take a second one a few days later, just to be sure. If you have a positive result, call Aspire For Women Obstetrics and Gynecology to make an appointment right away. The earlier you start prenatal care, the better for your health and the health and development of your baby.

What if I have risk factors for a high risk pregnancy?

Drs. Leslie Scariano and Grace Holub have extensive experience in caring for women with high risk pregnancies. Some of these risk factors are twin pregnancy, chronic hypertension, preeclampsia, diabetes, advanced maternal age, premature labor and many more. The team at Aspire For Women follow the most current evidence based practice guidelines. We may ask you to come in for more frequent visits and ultrasounds to monitor your baby’s health. We will also partner with your medical specialist or a maternal fetal medicine specialist to provide your care with the most up to date practice recommendations.

How can I stay healthy while I'm pregnant?

Your doctor gives you customized advice on how to improve and protect your health while you’re pregnant. For example, if you use tobacco or drink alcohol, you should stop while you’re pregnant or nursing. Additionally, you should make sure to include plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, lean proteins, and whole grains in your diet. 

You should also get exercise every day. The expert team at Aspire For Women Obstetrics and Gynecology can give you advice on the safest activities for each stage of pregnancy. Exercise keeps your muscles strong and supple, which can make your labor and delivery more comfortable.

Also, everyone has an opinion about what you should be doing while you’re pregnant. You know your body best, so listen to your body and your doctor. If you have questions about staying healthy during pregnancy or what to expect as you progress toward delivery, the team at Aspire For Women Obstetrics and Gynecology can help.
