Just Married and Pregnant

What an amazing event a wedding can be! All of the time put into getting everything just right, from the dress, to the flowers, to the music…it’s a day that you’ll never forget. You’ve said “I do” and celebrated with family and friends and now comes a time you’ve really been looking forward to, enjoying married life, just the two of you! But what happens when you’re settling in to those early days of wedded bliss and suddenly you or your spouse suspects that you are pregnant, much sooner than expected?

If you’re just married and suspect you might be pregnant, Avenue Women’s Center is here to help. Our medical grade pregnancy tests provide accurate results just ten days after possible conception. If you have a positive result, our caring client advocates provide information and support to address any questions or concerns you may have. The free pregnancy consultation allows you to gather information on all your pregnancy options and next steps. Contact us today for an appointment right away!

Starting a new life together is exciting. The future is before you and there are so many plans yet to be made. What happens when you get married and have a pregnancy scare right away? How do you reconcile the new stage of life you just entered with the possibility of a pregnancy?

It can be startling for newlyweds to contemplate pregnancy soon after getting married. It can also be concerning if you don’t feel financially, emotionally, or mentally ready. These factors tend to have an impact on a pregnancy decision. The first step you should take is to confirm your pregnancy. Before you get too caught up in the fears and concerns you may have, find out for sure if you truly are pregnant. Avenue offers free pregnancy tests in the Chicagoland area. If you live elsewhere, contact your medical provider for testing options.

Next, if you have a positive test, talk through your options together as a couple. It’s important for the two of you to communicate about the feelings you may be having. Whether you’re scared, frustrated or excited, your spouse may be having some of the same feelings and it’s important to talk about them. Maybe you’d like to talk to a close friend or relative about your situation, someone whom you really trust. Our immediate reaction to unexpected events in life are not always indicative of our true feelings and that’s why it’s important to take the time you need to gather information and think through your situation.

In all of this, Avenue Women’s Center is here as your next step. Our expert client advocates provide nonjudgmental support & options information for both you and your spouse. We are ready to listen to your situation and discuss any concerns that you may have. Contact us right away for a pregnancy test or options consultation at one of our five DuPage County locations- Elmhurst, Glen Ellyn / Lombard, Naperville, West Chicago, and Wood Dale, Illinois. We hope to hear from you!
