Hello justinalynn94,

Welcome to the EmpowHER community. Thank you for reaching out to us with your concern that you might be pregnant.

As soon as you can schedule an appointment with a gynecologist/obstetrician, please do so. A blood hCG test is most accurate in confirming pregnancy. A pelvic ultrasound will confirm a pregnancy and help determine how far along you are.

In the meantime, take care of yourself as if you are pregnant. Avoid smoking, if you are a smoker, and alcoholic beverages. Eat a well balanced diet and start paying attention to content of folic acid in your diet. Research has shown that if a woman takes 400 mcg of folic acid every day, before she becomes pregnant, she reduces her risk of having a baby with Spina Bifida or another neural tube defect by as much as 70%.

Please keep us updated once you have seen a gynecologist/obstetrician. Sending positive thoughts your way.
