Feeling a little off? It's normal to feel a wide range of emotions in the first trimester.

First Trimester Emotions

Mixed feelings about being pregnant, both positive and negative, are very normal

You may experience a roller coaster of first trimester emotions when you first see that positive result on your free pregnancy test.  Mixed feelings about being pregnant, both positive and negative, are very normal.  Fear, awe, excitement, and anxiety are just a few ranges of emotions you could be riding!  Hormones like progesterone play a big role in those unpredictable mood swings, so sharing your thoughts with someone you trust can be very helpful.

In fact, Alcove Health: A women’s clinic offers just that; a confidential consultation with your own trained Client Advocate and Registered Nurse at no cost to you.

Some other ways you can enhance health, while you’re waiting to book your appointment, during this phase are:

    • Getting enough sleep
    • Eating a healthy diet
    • Mild exercise
    • Educating yourself about the changes your body is experiencing

Although they are normal, these mood swings can be unsettling. So the good news is they usually decrease by the 13th week, or second trimester.

At Alcove Health we are here for you with many FREE resources – verify your pregnancy concerns with a free test, and if you need a free ultrasound that is offered as well, we also have 100’s of local support organizations which will provide a plethora of resources.  Call and schedule your free appointment today 757-591-8141.
