Early Pregnancy Q & A

What are the signs of early pregnancy?

Early pregnancy can cause many symptoms, which may vary from one woman to the next. Some of the most common signs include:

  • Cramping and spotting
  • Breast tenderness
  • Fatigue
  • Bloating
  • Frequent urination
  • Temperature changes
  • Mood swings
  • Unusual food cravings or changes in appetite

Since the symptoms of early pregnancy can also mimic the symptoms of premenstrual syndrome (PMS), sometimes it’s difficult to know whether you’re actually pregnant. The best way to know for sure is to confirm the pregnancy with Dr. Gordon.

What’s included in early pregnancy care?

As soon as you find out you’re pregnant, it’s important to get medical care. In the early weeks and months of pregnancy, many routine tests and services help monitor the growth of your baby and also your own health. At New Generation Medical Practice, early pregnancy care includes services like your initial sonogram, blood work, and delivery date prediction.

Dr. Gordon only provides pregnancy care up to the end of the first trimester (12 weeks). Then she refers you to an OB/GYN who continues your care.

What are the benefits of early pregnancy care?

Care during the early stages of your pregnancy is critical to having a healthy baby. It is during the first three months of pregnancy that your baby is developing vital elements, like the brain and spinal cord. Dr. Gordon ensures that you have all of the necessary tests and care to give you confidence in your pregnancy and to get you and your baby screened for any potential dangers that might occur later on in the pregnancy.

In addition to tests and procedures, Dr. Gordon can help you prepare for the reality of what pregnancy will be like, and how to manage the changing emotions and physical challenges that come during this stage of life.

With a commitment to going above and beyond for her patients, Dr. Gordon enjoys helping moms-to-be feel secure and safe during the pregnancy journey.
