What You Should Do, When You Test Positive for Pregnancy?

Pregnancy is one of the most important events in a woman’s life. But at the same time, it comes with a lot of responsibilities.

Today in this blog, we will briefly explain what you should do after testing positive for pregnancy, which will help you and your unborn child to stay healthy and fit.

Let’s begin.

What are the early signs and symptoms of pregnancy?

It’s important to note that the signs and symptoms of pregnancy vary from woman to woman.

Some of the most common signs and symptoms include:

  • Missed periods
  • Vomiting
  • Nausea
  • Fatigue
  • Frequent urination
  • Tenderness in breasts
  • Food cravings

  • Mood swings

Sometimes women experience weakness, irritation or spotting too. Also, a woman may experience minor bleeding is possible in early pregnancy. This is known as implantation bleeding.

This is generally caused after the implantation of the fertilized egg in the uterine wall. This bleeding is very light in colour, and there is no need to worry about it.

If the bleeding is minor and the colour is not dark red, it’s a normal phenomenon. But make sure you stay in touch with your doctor.

    Planning Ahead

    Once it is confirmed that you are pregnant, it’s time to celebrate!

    You should let your family know about your pregnancy. Share this wonderful news with your friends, colleagues and immediate family members.

    It’s crucial to understand that pregnancy symptoms vary for each woman. So if you have severe symptoms, make sure you plan your routine accordingly.

    Plan your visits to Gynaecologist

    Once you are pregnant, you will have to visit your gynaecologist at regular intervals.

    Meet them and plan your future visits based on their observation.

    Regular visits to a gynaecologist will ensure you do not face any issues during your pregnancy.

    Various tests during the pregnancy

    Gynaecologists perform various tests to ensure you and the embryo is safe.

    These tests include sonography and certain blood tests. So make sure you meet with your gynaecologist and plan these tests in advance.

    The next visit to a gynaecologist should be after 7 to 10 days after your first visit.

    Maintain your health

    This is the most important part of pregnancy.

    You will have to take extreme care of yourself when you are pregnant.

    Eat healthy food, maintain your health, stay fit and hygienic, stay hydrated, and avoid any addictions. Some women experience a bit more nausea in the early months.

    So if you are experiencing the same, ensure you are eating a balanced diet and a lot of fluid.

    Prepare a diet plan with the help of an expert and take medications regularly prescribed by your doctor.

    These medications contain folic acid and various vitamins that are necessary for your and your embryo’s health.

    Make sure you add light exercise and walking to your routine.

    Wrapping Up
