Finally, a postive pregnancy test!

Like many women who have been trying, you will likely know that you are about 4-5 weeks (from the start date of your last period) which is when the Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) is at high enough levels in your urine to show up on a pregnancy test. This is an estimate assuming you are tracking your periods and trying to get pregnant. If it’s a surprise you will need to see a doctor who will likely check hCG levels in your blood or urine as well as order an ultrasound to confirm pregnancy and determine how far along you are.
If you have a regular cycle and know when your last period began, it’s easy to find out your due date–the date when you will most likely deliver your baby. You can use our calculator by simply entering your menstruation information (start date of last period and average cycle length) and our Pregnancy Due Date Calculator will provide you with your due date and the baby’s astrological sign.
Now that you know you are pregnant will want to talk to your health care provider about prenatal care and any concerns you may have.
Also, if you haven’t given much thought to nutrition prior to finding out you are pregnant, please learn more about what your body needs now and how your nutritional needs will change throughout pregnancy.
Good luck on this wonderful journey.
