Am I really pregnant?

You may be asking yourself if you are really pregnant. Wondering if you are pregnant can produce a whole lot of different emotions and thoughts.  You may be feeling excited, happy, scared, angry, or a mix of these.

It can be overwhelming when you realise that your whole life is about to change.  What do you do now?

If you think you might be pregnant, the first step is to take a pregnancy test.

You can purchase a pregnancy test at your local supermarket or pharmacy.  A free pregnancy test can also be taken at our Gianna’s Choice Centres in Auckland and Wellington and in our Mobile Centre if it is in your area.  We are unable to send free tests to you in the post or by courier.

You can take a pregnancy test the first day after you have missed your period.  This will give you an indication of pregnancy.

The best way to confirm a pregnancy is with ultrasound.  An ultrasound will let you know if the pregnancy is viable (able to continue to develop under normal conditions).  Most importantly an ultrasound will ensure that you do not have an ectopic pregnancy, which is life-threatening for both mother and child.
