Pregnancy Q & A

Simi Obstetrics & Gynecology Medical Group

What are the signs of pregnancy?

The only way to know for sure if you are pregnant is with a pregnancy test, but some of the earliest signs of pregnancy include:

  • Fatigue
  • Nausea
  • Breast pain and swelling
  • Food aversions
  • Missed period

If you're experiencing these symptoms, take a pregnancy test or call Simi Obstetrics and Gynecology Medical Group to schedule an appointment with an OB/GYN.

What are your first steps after becoming pregnant?

The first thing to do is to call Simi Obstetrics and Gynecology Medical Group to make your first prenatal appointment.

The physicians at Simi Obstetrics and Gynecology Medical Group recommend that women have their first prenatal appointment between 8 and 10 weeks. After you make the appointment, you should read about what to expect when you are pregnant and start taking prenatal vitamins that are rich in folic acid.

What can a woman expect from her first OB appointment?

At Simi Obstetrics and Gynecology Medical Group, the first OB appointment is a time for an expectant mother to get her questions answered.

During this appointment, your doctor:

  • Verifies the pregnancy with a blood, urine, or ultrasound test
  • Takes a detailed medical history
  • Performs a general health exam
  • Discusses genetic screening options
  • Discusses nutrition and lifestyle
  • Answers questions about your pregnancy
  • Estimates a due date

How can a woman prevent pregnancy complications?

Proper prenatal care under the watchful eye of a physician from Simi Obstetrics and Gynecology Medical Group is critical to preventing complications. You can also take some measures yourself to avoid complications.

These include:

  • Maintaining a healthy diet and getting enough exercise
  • Drinking sufficient amounts of water
  • Avoiding alcohol, drug, and caffeine consumption
  • Managing underlying health conditions

Even the most careful woman can experience complications during pregnancy, but the team at Simi Obstetrics and Gynecology Medical Group is ready to help. Schedule your first appointment today to start your pregnancy off with the support of the leading OB/GYN team in Simi Valley.
