Facing the Unknown

Facing-the-Unknown

One of the most overwhelming parts of an unplanned pregnancy is just that -- it was unplanned. You didn’t expect this, and now you are suddenly faced with big decisions. Especially if this is your first pregnancy, you’re probably wondering where to go from here. What do you even do after seeing your positive test results? What are your next steps? 

First of all, that is where Birth Choice comes in. We are here to listen to you and your particular situation, as well as offer you accurate information about all of your options. We can confirm your pregnancy with a medical-grade pregnancy test, and depending on how far along you are, we can offer you an ultrasound -- all for FREE. We care about you and want to make sure that you have everything you need to face the unknown with confidence and peace.

Let’s talk about some other helpful things to consider when facing the unknown.

Accept the uncertainty.

One of the most difficult things about a situation like this is that it is hard to envision your future. In an unplanned pregnancy, you wonder what it would be like to become a parent before you ever thought you would. If you are considering abortion, how will that play into your future? If you are interested in adoption, what will that feel like? All of this uncertainty is overwhelming, to say the least. But one of the best things you can do for yourself is to accept the uncertainty. If you try to map everything out perfectly, you can end up feeling even more stressed, because you will see that there are endless possibilities.

Seek guidance and support.

For such a life-changing situation, it is so important to seek guidance and support from people you trust. Our fear can sometimes cloud our thoughts, so be open-minded and listen to other perspectives. People you trust can speak truth into your life and help you view your situation in another way. If you don’t have people you can trust, one of our client advocates can be that support for you.

Gather important information.

When there are so many potential outcomes, it is important to gather as much information as you can. For example, being aware of all of the resources available to single parents may give you a better understanding of the kind of help that is out there and that you won’t be going through your pregnancy alone. Similarly, if you are considering abortion, understanding how the various procedures work will help you make an informed decision. If you are considering adoption, you should know the various types of adoption available to you. If you would like more information on parenting, abortion, or adoption, Birth Choice is here for you.

While we can’t tell you exactly how your life will look, we can offer you the support, guidance, and information you need to feel peaceful about your situation and move forward with confidence. Call Birth Choice today at 214-631-2402 to schedule your FREE appointment.
