What are common symptoms of pregnancy?
During your pregnancy, you may have some symptoms that you can treat at home with over-the-counter medications or home treatments. Common symptoms of pregnancy include:
- Aches and pains
- Common cold, fever, nasal congestion, cough
- Changes in bowel movements
- Heartburn (indigestion)
- Nausea and/or vomiting
We can educate you on which over-the-counter medications are safe to take during your pregnancy to help you adjust to new symptoms as they arise.
During Your Prenatal Visits
If you are visiting us for a possible pregnancy, we will perform pregnancy tests in-house for your convenience. You can also expect a more in-depth appointment if your test is positive — a physical examination, blood work, a medical history, a pelvic examination, and ultrasound as ordered by your Health Services of North Texas physician.
You will have multiple visits throughout the pregnancy, which will be determined by your physician. At each appointment, we will assess your health and check on your baby, too. We will listen to the heartbeat and do checkups and tests as needed. Women with a high-risk pregnancy will likely have more appointments with a shorter time between visits. Of course, your prenatal visits can also be the time to ask questions about any problems or concerns you have with your pregnancy. We are here to help you have a healthy pregnancy!
