First time pregnant! Now what?

You are first time pregnant and in your head you have a bunch of questions. Here are the most important answers for you.

Am I really pregnant?

The surest sign of pregnancy is the absence of menstruation. Typical symptoms such as nausea, sensitivity to smells and sudden desire for a particular food usually appear a little later. Further suspicion in pregnancy can cause slight bleeding that occurs due to the implantation of the embryo in the uterus. This light bleeding comes a little earlier than the day when you should get your period.
