Although the earliest signs of pregnancy vary among women, some of the more common symptoms include:

  • Missed or late period
  • Tender breasts
  • Nausea (with or without vomiting)
  • Fatigue or unusual tiredness
  • Spotting
  • Cramps
  • Bloating
  • Constipation
  • Appetite change

  • Food or odor aversions
  • Frequent urination
  • Heartburn
  • Indigestion
  • Minor aches, pains or discomforts
  • Headaches

Just because you’re experiencing some of these symptoms doesn’t necessarily mean you’re pregnant. The only way to know for sure is to get a pregnancy test.

If you are unsure of your next steps or feeling scared, you are not alone. Getting a pregnancy test at Blue Ridge Women’s Center is an important next step.

Blue Ridge Women’s Center provides free pregnancy testing using laboratory-quality urine tests, which can detect pregnancy 7-14 days after conception.  If your test is positive, we also offer free limited obstetrical ultrasounds to date the pregnancy, confirm it is viable and in the uterus so you know what options are available to you. All our services are free, confidential, and non-judgmental.
