Afraid a Pregnancy Will Change Me

Change can bring its share of excitement, but sometimes change is something we dread. When a potential change approaches we might grasp for normalcy or try to live in denial. Perhaps your fears of change have become a reality. Now, you’re worried about how this new situation could change you. Where do you turn if you’re pregnant but can’t go through with it because you’re afraid of how it will change you?

Are you afraid of how pregnancy could change you? Facing this fear and uncertainty alone can be stressful. But having nonjudgmental, caring experts walk with you through this situation can be a comfort. Receiving the information you need about pregnancy and how it could affect you is crucial at this time! Not only does Avenue Women’s Center have the time to serve you, but we work to give you answers, too.

Positive and Difficult Changes

Most life circumstances bring about positive change as well as difficult change. Sometimes one might seem to outweigh the other. Yet, as we face potential change, it can be beneficial to think about not only the risks or difficulties associated but also the possible benefits! You can begin this list on your own or with the help of a trusted friend or family member, but sometimes having an outside professional’s assistance can lend perspective you might not have at this time.

Handling Difficult Change

Sometimes, the very thing we are upset or worried about never comes to pass. Is it possible that your fears about pregnancy changing you won’t come true? And, if they do come true, is it possible that you can handle those situations when they arise? Where do you draw strength and support from in times of difficult change? It may be time to lean on them a bit as you approach this crossroads. 

Talking With a Professional About Your Worries

Getting your fears off your chest can be one of the most relieving and reassuring things you could do at this point. You don’t have to face this time of life or your pending decision alone. If you are worried about change, make sure you have somebody who can listen to you and offer support. 

Taking Positive, Practical Pregnancy Steps

No matter your decision, it’s important to gather information about your pregnancy so you can be well-informed and make a choice you won’t regret. Confirming your pregnancy and receiving an ultrasound exam will give you guidance for your journey. These two steps will give you crucial information regarding the state of your pregnancy and the options that are available to you.
