Are you facing an unplanned pregnancy? Right now, the future may seem unclear. There may be so many questions running through your head that it’s hard to step back and answer even one.
You’re probably wondering what exactly will happen, how your body will change, and some of the ways you might feel during your pregnancy. Beyond that, what comes next? Should I have an abortion, parent my child, or choose adoption? This site was created to inform pregnant women of what to expect over the next nine months, and help provide you with information so you can make the best decision for you and your baby.
Every woman is different, and so is every pregnancy. And while we can’t tell you exactly how your pregnancy will develop and how you will feel, we can tell you how many women experience the physical and emotional changes that happen during their own pregnancies. After learning their stories, you may be able to take a step back, evaluate your feelings, and begin evaluating your options.
The first step in making a decision about your child’s life is to learn more about pregnancy itself.
At this point, you may not be certain whether or not you are pregnant. While only a positive pregnancy test can tell you for sure, read the Signs Of Pregnancy to learn what many women experience during the early weeks of their pregnancies.
For many pregnant women, one of the scariest parts is telling other people. “I’m Pregnant”: How To Tell Family & Loved Ones was created to make this often difficult conversation easier.

If you decide to carry your child to term, you will design a Birth Plan which will inform your medical team of your preferences during the birth of your child. Visit our Labor and Delivery pages to learn more about the stages of giving birth and some tricks to make the process easier.

Having a child is a life-long commitment that only begins with the nine months of pregnancy. Even if you do not ultimately decide to parent your child, you will live with the effects of your choice for your entire life. This makes becoming fully informed of your options extremely important.
As a pregnant woman, you have three options to choose from. The following resources were created so that you can learn more about these choices.
